Oral Appliance Therapy Helps You Sleep

Dr. Jack Ringer understands how annoying a CPAP Machine can be for people who suffer from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. So much so that he decided to take further education, so that he could become a preferred oral appliance therapy provider.

For years now, your oral appliance therapist in Orange County has helped thousands of patients sleep better with oral appliance therapy for OSA.

What is Oral Appliance Therapy?

According to Dental Cosmetics in Anaheim Hills, oral appliance therapy prevents people from snoring and from waking up 30 times an hour because of obstructive sleep apnea.

If you follow Dr. Ringers Blog, you will remember that OSA is a condition that causes the throat to relax. So much so, that it closes the breathing passageway making it impossible to breathe. Because the person suffering can’t breathe, the brain wakes him or her up so that they can catch a breath. People who live alone may not even know they have the condition.

Your oral appliance therapist in Orange County offers several types of appliances that help you get a good night’s sleep. These devices put the tongue in the right position preventing the airway from closing up.

Is Oral Appliance Therapy Better than CPAP Therapy?

People with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea have seen amazing results with oral appliance therapy. However, people who suffer from chronic and severe OSA may not be able to use oral appliance therapy. If you are one of those who have severe obstructive sleep apnea, talk to your sleep therapist about CPAP alternatives, including oral appliance therapy.

Why Doesn’t CPAP Therapy Work?

CPAP Therapy is the most popular solution for obstructive sleep apnea and it does work. However, even with equipment upgrades, people are still going without the mask and machine, instead willing to suffer the OSA consequences.

CPAP machines are smaller than they used to be, but in some cases are just as cumbersome. Cleaning is a hassle as is transportation not to mention the sound and discomfort. On the other hand, an oral appliance fits in the palm of your hand, doesn’t make any noise, and is easy to travel with.

If you have mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea, and have been looking for an alternative to your CPAP machine call and schedule an appointment with your oral appliance specialist in Anaheim Hills. Dr. Jack Ringer will examine your mouth and determine what type of appliance is best for your needs.
