Getting the Care You Need
Have you ever woken up feeling tired after a night of restless sleep? People with sleep apnea experience this on a daily basis, and it often leaves them feeling groggy and irritated. It also causes loud snoring that disrupts their bed partners as well, putting a strain on their relationships.
Dr. Reece understands the effects this sleep disorder can have on patients and offers customized treatments.
Finding Relief Without CPAP
Sleep apnea can take a toll on your health and happiness, so doctors are constantly working to find the best treatment methods. Traditionally, CPAP is prescribed to patients, but many find this machine to be bulky, loud, and intrusive.
They also find it to be ineffective because it requires them to sleep on their back while they sleep, leaving them unable to change sleep positions to get more comfortable.
After having many people complain about disliking CPAP, sleep doctors have begun offering an alternative care method called an oral appliance. This device is customized to each patient based on their specific needs.
The Convenience Of Oral Appliances
If you’re looking for a convenient way to treat your sleep apnea, an oral appliance may be a great option for you. It looks similar to a mouthpiece and fits comfortably inside your mouth while you sleep. Dr. Reece offers the Micr02 oral appliance from ProSommus due to its high quality and the fact it’s FDA approved.
This treatment device gently repositions your jaw while you’re sleeping, opening up your airway and allowing you to rest through the night. Patients also prefer it because it’s easy to travel with, quiet, discreet, and allows mobility while they sleep.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can sleep apnea be cured?
Your sleep apnea symptoms can be greatly improved with treatment and lifestyle changes. Positional sleep therapy, weight loss, and avoiding sedatives can help to further alleviate your symptoms alongside appliance treatment.
While surgery can permanently change the structure of your mouth and throat, this option is only used in the most extreme cases. Surgery can have permanent side effects and appliance treatment is often effective without the need for permanent physical alteration.
When is sleep apnea dangerous?
Treatment can help to immediately reduce your risk of health complications. Dr. Reece will work with you to develop a treatment plan that suits you and improves your symptoms. He’ll help you improve your health and well-being.
Will sleep apnea stop me from driving?
With treatment, you’ll be able to concentrate on driving without feeling groggy. This will greatly reduce your risk of being involved in an automobile accident and you can drive safely.
Are sleep apnea machines noisy?
Fortunately, sleep apnea mouthpieces are often just as effective for treatment. Best of all, they’re completely silent. If you or your partner have difficulty falling asleep with the noise of a CPAP, a mouthpiece can fix this issue.
