Treatment has become much more comfortable
If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnea then every night while you sleep your heart and blood vessels are under strain and you are vulnerable for developing elevated blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes. It can also affect your energy levels, memory, concentration and mood. You should not be sleeping without any assistance to your breathing.
There are only two proven and established treatments for sleep apnea: dental sleepÂ appliances and the CPAP machine.
In the past many people diagnosed with sleep apnea have found CPAP treatment to be too uncomfortable to use long term, and others wouldn’t even try it in the first place.Â However with the advent of new generation dental sleep appliances this no longer needs to be the case.
Most patients easily adapt to the dental appliance to the extent that within a short period of time, because of the benefits attained they donâ€™t want to sleep without it.Â CPAP machines have become smaller, quieter and much easier to adapt to. Treatment for sleep apnea is often life changing. There is now no need to put off treatment.
