Your Sleep Apnea Appliance Is Less Disruptive Than a CPAP

If you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, your airway becomes blocked repeatedly throughout the night, causing you to gasp for breath. If you have severe sleep apnea, you may need a CPAP machine. You’ll breathe the pressurized air produced by the machine through a face mask. This keeps your airway open while you sleep.

For less severe cases, you may be able to wear a sleep apnea appliance instead. Many people prefer an appliance because of its:

  • Comfort – An apnea appliance fits easily in your mouth, much like an athletic mouthguard. There’s no mask or tubing to bother you.
  • Convenience – You can slip an appliance into your pocket. It requires no electricity, batteries, or distilled water. So it’s easy to take with you anywhere you go.
  • Low Profile – Both you and your bed partner will find an appliance less distracting than a CPAP.

Common Questions About Sleep Apnea

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea occurs when your tongue and other soft tissues in your throat relax during sleep and block your air passages. When this happens, your brain causes your body to wake up and take in more oxygen. After you do, you drift back to sleep once more – until the cycle repeats itself. Most sleep apnea sufferers aren’t even aware this is happening.

Why is sleep apnea bad?

Of course, sleep apnea disrupts your sleep and can leave you fatigued, moody, and unproductive during the day. But sleep apnea has also been linked to other, more serious health concerns. It can contribute to high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, diabetes, and depression. Getting treatment now can improve both your quality of life and length of life.

How is sleep apnea treated?

For sufferers of severe sleep apnea, a CPAP machine may be needed. It pumps a steady stream of air through your airway to keep it open. For mild to moderate cases of sleep apnea, a custom-fitted oral appliance may be used. Worn while sleeping, it will push your lower jaw slightly forward to help keep your airway open. It’s an effective, convenient alternative to a CPAP machine.
