For patients suffering from sleep apnea, Somnodent offers an alternative to the uncomfortable CPAP machine in the form of an effective oral appliance. Apnea patients can sleep restfully and soundly without the restrictions of the CPAP machine with this comfortable and removable treatment, giving them their life and health back once again.
The device is an FDA approved oral appliance that adjusts the mouth enough to prevent the symptoms of sleep apnea. It is commonly prescribed to patients suffering from this disorder, and all have reported that they would be more than happy to use it again. Rather than a cumbersome machine, SomnoDent is more like a sports mouthguard, fitting over the top and bottom teeth. In technical terms, it is a mandibular advancement splint designed to reposition the mouth to treat sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is a potentially life threatening condition that should not be ignored, yet conventional treatments are cumbersome and uncomfortable. If you are frustrated with the CPAP machine and your inability to sleep soundly because of sleep apnea, call your local dentist’s office today to learn more about SomnoDent. Many area patients receive free consultations to discuss sleep apnea treatment, so you have nothing to lose but your tossing and turning — and you just might regain your energy after getting a full night of sleep once again!
