Treatment Is Simple & Stress-Free With an Oral Appliance

Sleep apnea, which occurs when your breathing frequently pauses during sleep, is a dangerous condition that should never go untreated. It increases your risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and more. That’s what you’re risking whenever you stop your sleep apnea treatment or forgo treatment entirely.

While the CPAP machine is a commonly prescribed treatment for sleep apnea, many patients find it difficult to incorporate into their sleep routines and simply stop using it. Instead of a CPAP, which keeps your airway clear with a stream of air, many patients benefit from a custom-made oral appliance.

The oral appliance is small and fits precisely over your upper and lower teeth to slightly reposition your lower jaw and tongue, keeping your airway open while you sleep. It is a simple and minimally invasive way to treat the most common form of sleep apnea, obstructive sleep apnea. Unlike a CPAP, you won’t have to worry about:

  • Batteries or electricity to power a machine
  • A restrictive mask and tubing
  • Distilled water to keep it clean
  • Noise that can disturb you or your bed partner

Unlike many practices, we offer several different kinds of oral appliances to ensure you’ll be able to find the one that works best for your situation. In fact, Dr. Ross has tried and worn the oral appliances he recommends to his patients.
