What about the CPAP Machine?
CPAP is the most popular treatment for sleep apnea, and effective for patients who use it. Unfortunately, many patients find CPAP treatment intolerable and quit using it.
CPAP masks are loud, bulky, and uncomfortable. They are difficult to transport and maintain. Because of these drawbacks, Dr. Buchheit does not prescribe the CPAP to his patients.
Although the CPAP is proven to reduce sleep apnea, it does not work for the thousands of patients who do not comply with it. There are more convenient ways to treat sleep apnea so that you can rely on refreshing sleep again!
More Comfortable CPAP Alternatives
Dr. Buchheit offers successful CPAP alternatives. The oral appliance for sleep apnea is one of our patient favorites.
An oral appliance for sleep apnea can be used alone to stop sleep apnea. If you already have a CPAP, you can also use the oral appliance for sleep apnea in conjunction with the CPAP, or alternate with your current treatment.
How does an oral appliance for sleep apnea work? This sleep apnea treatment protrudes the lower jaw. By pulling the jaw forward, the appliance prevents it from falling back into the airway, making it easier for you to breathe throughout the night.
Other CPAP alternatives includes positional therapy, weight loss, and surgery. Let’s discuss the easiest way for you to avoid the obstacles of sleep apnea.
