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.

If a CPAP machine is the best choice for treating your sleep apnea, 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.

When we produce an oral appliance for you, we use a unique approach to do more than simply help you live with the symptoms of sleep apnea. We want to treat the cause behind your apnea.

Oral appliance therapy at our practice is guided by the study of craniofacial epigenetics and Pneumopedia® science. We study the structure of your airways and find a way to remodel them, so you can enjoy breathing wellness that can benefit you all day and night!

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

  • It is small and easy to transport.
  • A custom-made appliance is comfortable.
  • It is easy to wear and use consistently.
  • An appliance is easy to clean.

With proper wear, an oral appliance is effective at eliminating sleep apnea symptoms.

Most patients are pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and convenient this remarkable CPAP alternative can be. The sleep professionals at Salt Lake Sleep Solutions can help you determine whether our unique approach to sleep apnea treatment will be the most effective solution.
