Have you been diagnosed with mild to moderate sleep apnea and wear a CPAP mask? Do you often sleep without it because you find it uncomfortable?
There may be a better way. Our Royal Palm Beach dental office offers alternate sleep apnea treatment using a simple, comfortable dental device and oral appliance therapy.
Many patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) aren’t compliant with wearing their CPAP masks. They may find it intrusive or uncomfortable or that the machine is too noisy. The result is that the CPAP machine designed to treat their sleep apnea ends up sitting unused in a closet.
Dr. Bussell works with your sleep physician to determine if oral appliance therapy is the right approach to treat your sleep apnea. Oral appliance therapy (OAT) involves wearing a customized dental device while you sleep.
OAT gently repositions your lower jaw slightly forward to open the airway and allow you to breathe freely. Our sleep apnea dentist uses dental impressions to customize the appliance to fit comfortably over your teeth and make it easy to wear.
Is Oral Appliance Therapy Right for You?
Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us, and we will work closely with your sleep doctor to see if oral appliance therapy is safe for you.
Please call our Royal Palm Beach dental office to schedule an evaluation with Dr. Bussell to get started.
