The Best CPAP Alternative
While the test used CPAP as the treatment method for sleep apnea, it’s not the only effective treatment. Oral appliance therapy is a CPAP alternative that lets patients sleep peacefully without wearing a mask with tubes and a noisy machine. It is just as effective as CPAP clinically for those with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. Still, in a real-world application, it’s much more effective because the treatment is easier to use, wear, and fits seamlessly into lifestyles.
Oral appliance therapy uses an apparatus that we custom design for you. You pop it in your mouth each time you sleep, and it holds your jaw in a position where your airway remains unobstructed, even when your soft tissues sag as you sleep. It’s comfortable, convenient, easy to clean, silent, and doesn’t require electricity or water to work.
For those with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, oral appliance therapy could have the same effect as CPAP on your biological age. Using your treatment each time you sleep slows down the clock because it puts you at a lower risk for complications that arise with untreated sleep apnea.
