Do You Find Yourself Falling Asleep on the Job?
Have you ever caught yourself falling asleep during the day? Do you snore loudly at night? Perhaps you may be suffering from a condition known as sleep apnea. Your airway does not stay open as it should, resulting in a narrowed passageway for the air to flow in and out of your lungs. Traditional treatment is a CPAP device, which is a mask that fits over the nose and mouth. A small machine pumps air continually through the mask throughout the night. Although it relieves the problem, its bulkiness produces another problem – it is uncomfortable to wear, so many patients stop using it.
If you have tried the CPAP device and are frustrated with it, we have an alternative that is small, light, and easy to put in and take out. This acrylic device goes over your upper and lower teeth. It will reposition your tongue and jaw to keep your airway open for sufficient airflow to and from your lungs. The results have been astounding, with over 90% of those who use it having successful improvement. Give us a call to discuss this latest appliance so you can have a good night’s rest again.
