Have you been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea from your primary care physician? Have you been using a CPAP machine and been uncomfortable and embarrassed when sleeping at night? While CPAP devices are a great way to address obstructive sleep apnea and ensure patients are getting a good night’s rest, they are not the most attractive or comfortable appliances to use. Dr. Eric Wiitala of Scottsdale, AZ is pleased to offer another treatment option for patients to consider from tehri dentist. This includes oral appliances and dental sleep devices.
How can I eliminate my CPAP machine?
CPAP machines are large, cumbersome devices that can be difficult to travel with and uncomfortable to wear. This causes many patients to stop complying with treatment and experience the symptoms of sleep apnea again. Instead, patients should ask Dr. Eric Wiitala about the dental sleep device, which is another alternative treatment that is much more comfortable to wear. The dental sleep device available is a special appliance that looks like a mouthguard. It is worn in the mouth when patients sleep at night or take naps during the day to reduce snoring and allow them to get the rest they need. These mouthpieces are custom-fit for a patient and are much more comfortable to wear. They are more discreet and are much easier to travel with, making them a popular choice for many of our patients. Patients who utilize this dental sleep device will often find that it replaces their CPAP machine and provides the same results: a good night’s rest!
