CPAP Alternatives: The Dental Solution
For mild-to-moderate sleep apnea, the custom-made oral appliance is simply inserted in the mouth at bedtime, much like an athletic mouthpiece. It works to open your airway by moving the jaw and tongue forward, and increasing muscle tone in the soft palate to prevent obstruction.
MRA oral appliances are proven effective in eliminating snoring and treating sleep apnea while avoiding the inconveniences and difficulties of traditional CPAP therapy with its masks, hoses and electric pumps.
If you are interested in finding out if an MRA oral appliance is right for you and are suffering from CPAP intolerance in Carmel, Indiana, call the sleep dentists at Tim Adams D.D.S. today for a free screening and information about CPAP alternatives.
