Treating Sleep Apnea
Sleep apnea is a serious disorder that causes patients to experience erratic breathing while they sleep. Often, patients are treated with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy after being diagnosed by a physician. While this methods is effective, there are other options that are more comfortable. For patients who have undergone a sleep study and have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, Dr. Krell offers patients the alternative option of sleep apnea treatment with dental appliance.
Oral appliance therapy is a great option for those who find their quality of sleep and overall health is being negatively affected by a sleep disorder, but don’t want to deal with invasive therapies or CPAP. A sleep apnea dental appliance is only worn during sleep, and is similar to a retainer or mouth guard. Patients tend to prefer this method of treatment, as it is more convenient. Other benefits include its small size, making these appliances easier to travel with. Patients tend to utilize these devices more successful because they are easy to deal with and, resulting in positive improvements in health and wellness.
