The most common treatment for Lake County IL patients diagnosed with severe sleep apnea may be a CPAP machine. For those who simply will not use a CPAP machine, a dental mouth guard might be the next best alternative. At Alpine Dental, we see patients who travel frequently and can not tolerate the CPAP machine for various reasons – for example, if you like to go camping, it’ll be hard to find a 200-mile extension cord for your CPAP machine!
Remember, not all dentists have the same level of training and not all dental professionals are comfortable treating sleep disorders. Dr. Klein, however, can create custom oral appliance for her patients. This appliance, specially designed to treat obstructive sleep apnea, starts working as soon as you slip it into your mouth at night. The dental mouth guard has a very high success rate for those with snoring and sleep breathing issues due to mild or moderate OSA.
For symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea, a custom oral appliance is a fast, safe and effective solution.
Making some changes to your lifestyle can relieve the symptoms of sleep apnea and dramatically improve your life. Some of these changes include but are not limited to:
