Treat Your Sleep Apnea With An Oral Appliance

The only way to know for sure if you have sleep apnea is to be properly diagnosed. We can help set you up for a sleep study to determine whether sleep apnea is a problem for you.

Once we have a formal diagnosis, we can get started on treatment. There are two common ways we can help you manage sleep apnea:

  • The most common form of treatment for sleep apnea is the CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine. This machine pumps air into your nose (or nose and mouth) to prevent the collapse of your airways. Many patients struggle to adjust to using a CPAP and discontinue treatment.
  • As an alternative or supplement to a CPAP machine, Dr. Duffield and his team can also offer you an oral device to help treat your sleep apnea. Our oral devices simply sit in your mouth and are designed to temporarily adjust the jaw to allow the airways to remain open. These devices are much easier to get used to than CPAP machines and typically offer a greater chance that the patient actually maintains treatment over a period of time.

Live A Healthier & Safer Life

Sleep apnea is typically considered a very serious disorder and should not go untreated. A lack of quality sleep puts a lot of unneeded stress on the body and can lead to or complicate a lot of other problems:

  • High blood pressure
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Increased chance of heart attack and stroke
  • Increased chance of liver problems
  • Increased likelihood of metabolic syndrome
  • Complications with medications or surgeries

Don’t wait. Call Duffield Dentistry for sleep apnea treatment today at (248) 721-4502 to schedule your consultation.
