Sleep Therapy (Snoring/Apnea)
You want to be and feel your best. You exercise. You go to bed at a decent time. You even take the time to shop for good, fresh foods and prepare body-boosting meals for your family.
But if you aren’t getting the right kind of rest, no matter what you do, no matter how hard you try, you just aren’t going to be your best self. In fact, if you snore or have sleep apnea, you might not just be missing sleep, you might be missing oxygen as well – and that is bad news for you – and those around you.
What are your options?
The CPAP appliance (continuous Positive Airing Pressure) (Figure 3) has been the gold standard for treating sleep apnea and snoring. It is however not for everyone and can be cumbersome, uncomfortable, cause skin irritation, and leave patients with a dry nose and throat.
In our practice is an alternative, we recommend the ProSomnus (Figure 1) and TAP Appliance (Figure 2). These appliances are more comfortable, convenient and function by moving the lower jaw slightly forward during sleep. We have experienced great success with these appliances.
