CPAP Machine

CPAP stands for “Continuous Positive Airway Pressure.” A CPAP machine has a facial mask that fits over your mouth. The facial mask works to increase air pressure in the throat while you sleep. It will help keep your throat open during sleep so you can breathe freely and rest deeply.

The CPAP machine offers several benefits, including:

  • Typically, CPAP machines are highly effective in treating sleep apnea, given proper user compliance.
  • CPAP machines have helped several patients feel more alert and focused.
  • Many patients report having steadier moods and feeling happier after using CPAP.
  • Many patients who use the CPAP machine have had improved heart health and better blood pressure.

The CPAP Machine is often the primary choice for sleep apnea treatment because it consistently yields positive results. The CPAP machine may take some getting used to. It can be a bit loud and will require some adjustment to your normal sleep routine. However, the benefits of CPAP outweigh its downsides. You can have a full deep sleep again with a CPAP machine!

Oral Appliance Therapy

Some sleep apnea patients opt for custom oral devices for sleep apnea instead of a CPAP machine. An oral appliance is comparable to a mouth guard. It is worn during sleep to push the jaw forward and keep the airway open. Research shows that oral devices are also an effective way to reverse snoring and treat sleep apnea.

When you undergo oral appliance therapy, you can enjoy the following benefits:

  • With proper wear, an oral appliance is effective at eliminating sleep apnea symptoms.
  • It is small and easy to transport
  • It is easy to wear and use consistently

Most patients are pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and convenient CPAP alternatives can be. The sleep experts at Salt Lake Sleep Solutions can help you determine whether a CPAP machine or oral appliance will be most effective for you.
