CPAP Frustrations

If you’ve had to use a CPAP you already know the problems and frustrations of using one. Here are the top reasons why our patients say they’re frustrated with their CPAP. First, I cannot tolerate the dry air or the claustrophobic experience of a mask. Second, I can’t find a mask that fits or is comfortable for my specific facial features, plus I’m tired of wearing the HUGE mask. It’s just not natural. Third, travelling with my CPAP is cumbersome. I always have airport security problems, and there’s the need to bring extension cords, wall plug adapters, spares. batteries and so on.

All to often, CPAP users think they have no alternative to the problems that accompany their CPAP. No more! It’s time to remove your mask and get a good night sleep. Our oral dental appliance therapy is comfortable and safe for patients with mild or moderate Sleep Apnea, those with upper airway resistance syndrome and those who simply snore. Severe Sleep Apnea sufferers, if unsuccessful with positive airway pressure therapy, may also benefit from our dental appliances, provided they can be closely monitored to verify the majority of apnea events have been prevented.
