Effective Treatment for Sleep Apnea
Many patients benefit from sleep apnea treatment with Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) therapy. However, many patients are CPAP intolerant and can not continue using it. If you’ve been told you are CPAP intolerant, you may benefit from oral appliance therapy. If our doctors recommend this as part of your treatment plan, you will need to wear an oral appliance that is designed to shift your jaw while sleeping. This appliance keeps your mouth in proper alignment and helps to keep the airways open.

Additionally, patients are recommended to stop smoking and drinking alcohol and to reduce stress in their lives.
