Clearwater, Florida, area dentist offers the Emergency Sleep Apnea Recovery Package.
Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates describe oral appliance therapy as using a specialized mouthguard while patients sleep. This mouthguard is designed for the patient to fit into the mouth during sleep to hold down the tongue, keep the jaw aligned, and maintain open airways. Obstructive sleep apnea can cause a patient to cease breathing hundreds of times each night, keeping them from getting the rest they need. With the oral appliance, patients can successfully avoid these problems and sleep all night long.
Why choose oral appliance therapy?
The primary reason why patients consider speaking with their dentist about oral appliance therapy is due to how uncomfortable the CPAP machine can be. This device uses a mask that covers the nose and mouth to maintain open airways. Many patients despise using this device and will stop complying with treatment—causing their obstructive sleep apnea to go untreated. Instead, patients often choose oral appliance therapy with a sleep apnea dentist because it is:
- Easy to travel with
- Simple to care for
- More discreet
