Snoring and CPAP Intolerance
5 Feb, 2012
CPAP is not only uncomfortable it’s also now shown in a a new study that prolonged use of CPAP masks lead to slight shifts in jaw and position of teeth along with other craniofacial changes. Previous studies have already reported midfacial hypoplasia in children using CPAP and in as little use as 2 years.
What is CPAP?
CPAP is a machine that pushes air into a person while they are sleeping to treat obstructive sleep apnea. The device works through a mask that must be worn while sleeping in order for the air to get pushed into the lungs. The device was created to treat sleap apnea. Learn more about sleep apnea here.
We have not only a better solution, but one that is not harmful and actually comfortable. For those that cannot tolerate a CPAP, we have a patented, custom made mouthpiece with 5 FDA clearances that is worn while sleeping and it fits like a dental retainer. It is comfortable and effective in opening the airway.
Come in for a complimentary consultation and learn more about this solution.
