What is the most effective oral appliance for sleep apnea?

If you have sleep apnea and you want to find an alternative to the CPAP machine, you might be wondering which oral appliance is the most effective. You have been frustrated with using a CPAP machine but know you still need to address your sleep apnea. You need to be fitted for an oral device by a sleep-trained dentist or orthodontist, and there are several brands available. Finding the right sleep-trained dentist for your oral sleep appliance in Calgary SE might be a challenge.

Is there a way to treat sleep apnea without a CPAP machine?

Yes, oral appliances look like a mouth guard, but they are worn in the mouth at night to eliminate snoring and open the airway to prevent sleep apnea. While there are over-the-counter options available, they are not a good choice as they are not custom-fit to your mouth and can actually complicate your sleep apnea. How do you know which is the most effective CPAP alternative? You might be trying to sort out all the information on options on your own. 

No one should struggle to find the best oral appliance for sleep apnea.

At Outdoor Dental, Dr. Jay Patel is an experienced family dentist who is a sleep-trained dentist as well. He has had many patients come to him who found a CPAP machine awkward, clumsy and they didn’t find that it helped their quality of sleep. Most stopped using it and were eager to find a better solution. Dr. Patel understands that the issues of sleep apnea, snoring and TMJ disorder, or crooked teeth can all be addressed with one device. He has been specially trained to diagnose sleep apnea and has treated many people with various CPAP alternatives such as Vivos® Sleep DNA (Daytime Nighttime Appliance) appliances. Vivos® and Zephyr sleep technologies have been helping patients for years by successfully opening airways to enable patients to breathe properly.  

Do oral appliances really work for sleep apnea? 

Obstructive sleep apnea not only causes snoring; it prevents your brain from receiving enough oxygen to perform the vital work that it performs during sleep. Unaddressed sleep apnea can lead to hypertension, impaired memory, headaches, depression, and heart disease. It has also been linked to an increased risk of Alzheimer’s. While CPAP machines do address sleep apnea, they are not much help if patients give up on using them. On the other hand, oral appliances are simple, portable, and silent. They are customized to fit your mouth, are comfortable to wear, and are effective at treating snoring and sleep apnea. They are designed to position the lower jaw slightly forward and down to open the airway. 

Dr. Patel can diagnose your sleep apnea and take oral photographs to design a custom dental sleep appliance specifically for you to wear at night while you sleep.  

Here’s how easy it is to work with Dr. Patel: 

1.     Let’s determine if a sleep apnea appliance is right for you
2.     Experience a quick and accurate treatment plan
