A Snore Appliance Can Help You Sleep Soundly
One common type of sleep apnea treatment is a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine. It uses a stream of pressurized air to keep your airway open while you sleep. If you’re looking for a CPAP alternative, we can make a custom snore appliance for you. Instead of pressurized air, it keeps your airway clear by gently moving your jaw forward.
Compared to a CPAP, many people find an appliance:
- More Comfortable – Some people find it hard to tolerate CPAP’s forced air. The air can also dry out your nose and throat.
- Less Restrictive – With no mask over your face or tubing, it’s easier to move around in your sleep with an appliance. You also won’t be bothered by noise from a machine.
- More Convenient – You can use an appliance anywhere since no electricity or battery is needed. It’s also much easier to transport since it fits in a pocket or purse.
- More Cost Effective – An appliance costs less than a CPAP.
