Snoring Solutions - Sleep Apnea Appliances to Replace CPAP Machines
If you have sleep apnea, you likely know all about CPAP machines. You also probably hate them. CPAP machines are undoubtedly useful if you have sleep apnea, but did you know that they might not be necessary? Even if you have severe sleep apnea, there might be a way for you to live your life that doesn’t involve the use of bulky machines. Imagine if you could travel light again, without your CPAP machine.
Well, this might be a possible pipe dream with sleep apnea appliances. Most snoring and triggers of sleep apnea are related to the collapsing of soft tissues around the breathing structures. This sounds complicated, but a lot of the time it’s the tongue that gets in the way of breathing once the jaw shifts in sleep. If you could find a way to keep the jaw in place and keep the tongue from moving and causing problems in breathing, then you will have found the way to stop your sleep apnea from occurring.
A sleep apnea appliance can readily do this. These often look like athletic guards, but are worn at night in order to prevent the teeth from moving overmuch and allow you to breathe easily and without obstruction at night. If you are interested in this way of controlling your sleep apnea, be sure to contact us at Barrington Dental Care™. Sleep apnea appliances can be made quickly and easily. Don’t suffer with your CPAP machine any longer if you don’t have to. With the help of the dentists at Barrington Dental Care™, you can get a sleep apnea appliance and live free from machinery much easier than you thought.
