Is an oral appliance right for treating my sleep apnea?
A good night's rest is crucial for a successful next day. People with sleep disorders, like sleep apnea, may have a hard time sleeping through the night. There are popular sleep disorder treatments available; it's essential to determine which one is the most effective for your lifestyle.
While continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is considered very effective in treating sleep apnea, many patients have a hard time adjusting to it. As many as half of the patients prescribed CPAP stop using it.
If you have sleep apnea but have a hard time transitioning to CPAP, Dr. Hivick may be able to provide alternative sleep treatments. An oral appliance, for example, is an effective option to CPAP for treating mild to moderate sleep apnea. An oral appliance may be the perfect solution for ending your snoring, managing sleep apnea, and improving sleep quality.
