Introducing The EASY Alternative to CPAP: Sleep Apnea Oral Appliances!

sleep apnea

Instead of using CPAP therapy as instructed, in many situations, patients have a much more comfortable alternative that is also affordable. The oral appliance has a similar resemblance to retainers, and also only have to be worn while asleep. It is stated by patients that they are sleeping better without wake ups during the night, feeling rejuvenated, and ceased snoring while they use the appliance.

Benefits of an Oral Sleep Appliance

  • For mild to moderate sleep apnea, oral appliance therapy offers many of the same health benefits as CPAP: By treating your sleep apnea, you can reduce your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. You will also improve your daytime alertness, concentration and emotional stability.
  • Ease of use: Some patients prefer oral appliances because they can be easy to wear. For most patients it takes a few weeks to get used to sleeping with an oral appliance in your mouth.
  • Small and easy to transport: Traveling with your sleep apnea treatment is easy with an oral appliance therapy. Unlike CPAP, oral appliances are small enough to fit in your purse or carry-on bag.
  • May be more cost effective than CPAP devices: Most of the time, oral appliances are covered by medical insurance, including Medicare and Medicaid, especially if you already tried CPAP therapy and it.
