The primary treatment for sleep apnea is a continuous positive airway pressure machine, or CPAP. Many people experience significant improvement with the CPAP, but it is not always an option. Some people find wearing the required face mask uncomfortable or claustrophobic. Others complain of the noise associated with CPAP or feel as though they are suffocating due to the forced air pressure.
If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea but find using a CPAP uncomfortable, our Amherst, NH dental office offers an alternative: oral appliance therapy. There are a variety of appliances available to treat sleep apnea, either as a replacement for or in conjunction with CPAP therapy.
