We Can Offer You A CPAP Alternative

Often, people with sleep apnea assume that the only viable treatment is the CPAP machine. While this device can be effective, others find it difficult to use. But we don’t rely solely on the CPAP machine to bring our patients relief. Our sleep clinic in Winter Park, FL, can help you rest with ease using an oral appliance.

The Signs and Dangers of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea means that while you rest at night, soft tissues collapse and cut off airflow. You stop breathing briefly until the brain wakes you after registering the drop on oxygen. You may not remember waking, but this interrupts your REM sleep multiple times a night, so even if you believe you slept well the night before, you are exhausted and sleep-deprived. Over time, this can cause moodiness, daytime drowsiness, trouble concentrating on tasks, issues with memory, and even a weakened immune system. This is also linked to issues like diabetes, and could even strain your heart health, high blood pressures, heart disease, and even stroke and heart attack or more likely. When you experience these warning signs, which could also include chronic snoring, you should reach out to our team.

Starting Your Treatment

We will begin with an evaluation of your sleep habits and questions about potential warning signs and factors behind sleep apnea, such as age, weight, medical history, and more. We may also recommend an at-home sleep test to assess the presence of sleep apnea, or in some cases, a night in a lab setting to monitor your sleeping habits. From there, we can assess the cause and extent of your sleep apnea, and choose the most appropriate solution. For many, this is the oral appliance.

Our CPAP Alternative

A sleep appliance doesn’t require a mask or machine to help you breathe without interruption. Instead, a custom-fitted device that fits like a mouthguard is worn as you sleep. The device is comfortable and custom-fitted so it can gently reposition your jaw and tongue to keep airways open and free of complications while you rest. You then breathe without interruption and wake up feeling more rested and alert. As your symptoms subside, you can avoid other issues with mood and memory, and regain a better quality of life. The oral appliance itself is easy to use and clean, and can travel with you conveniently as well.
