CPAP Machine Alternative: Dental Sleep Appliances
If you’re one of the many Calgarians who suffer from sleep apnea, you know that going on with your daily life can be tiring and frustrating. If you’ve looked into finding relief, you’ve probably heard about Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines. CPAPs have improved greatly over the years and are not as bulky or inconvenient. Yet some sleep apnea patients do not like using the CPAP.
Whether your sleep apnea is rated as mild to moderate or even severe, you may benefit from an Dental Sleep Appliance designed to keep your jaw positioned optimally ensuring your airway remains open.
How Dental Sleep Appliances Work
The Dental Sleep Appliance brings your lower jaw forward during the night to pull your tongue away from your airway.
Non-evasive solution to sleep apnea
Some sleep apnea sufferers find their CPAP machines difficult to tolerate.
Comfortable and effective
The appliance is designed with an adjustable lower jaw advancement which enhances the effectiveness and makes the splint both effective and comfortable.
