Patients of the Clearwater, Florida, area who have worked with their primary care provider and have been told that they have obstructive sleep apnea are often told to use a device called a CPAP machine. Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates of Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry offer the Emergency Sleep Apnea Recovery Package.
What is oral appliance therapy?
Oral appliance therapy uses a special mouthguard at night to realign the jaw, hold down the tongue, and open the airways for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. There are many reasons why patients might choose oral appliance therapy over the use of a CPAP machine. Oral appliance therapy is:
- More comfortable than the CPAP machine
- Easier to travel with
- Long-lasting and easy to use
- Simple to clean and care for
- More affordable for long-term use
Oral appliance therapy is a holistic way of addressing the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea. Dr. Beata A. Carlson and Associates at Natural and Cosmetic Dentistry are excited to offer an alternative for patients who would otherwise struggle with using a CPAP machine.
