Reclaim Your Night’s Rest
Oftentimes, when patients are diagnosed with sleep apnea they dread the thought of using a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine. Though it’s effective, many patients complain that their CPAP is loud, restrictive, uncomfortable, and awkward to use.
Dr. Iregui offers custom-made oral appliances as a more comfortable and convenient alternative to CPAP therapy. Discover whether you’re a candidate for an oral appliance.
Who is a Candidate for an Oral Appliance?
An oral appliance may be the right solution for you, if:
- You snore frequently and loudly
- You suffer from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
- You can’t tolerate your CPAP machine
- You constantly grind your teeth (bruxism)
- You want to improve your quality of life
Is an Oral Appliance Better Than CPAP?
Oral appliances have been shown to be more effective and successful in patients with mild to moderate OSA. They’re small, comfortable, easy-to-use, and best of all, don’t make a sound ⎼ making it a popular, patient-preferred solution over CPAP therapy.
After receiving a proper diagnosis, Dr. Iregui will examine your sleep study results and thoroughly explain your treatment options. This will include the different oral appliance brands featured at our Gig Harbor office. Together, we’ll work to determine the best solution for your unique lifestyle.
