ORAL APPLIance therapy – “Say Yes”
The standard treatment for obstructive sleep apnea is a CPAP machine, which forces patients to wear a bulky mask over their face at night as air is forced into their lungs via a noisy machine. This makes it exceedingly difficult for patient and their partner to sleep.
At Dental Arts of Huntley, Dr.Bansal has advanced training in sleep apnea and familiarity with the latest treatment technology. One of the most powerful ways to treat this condition is to alter the position of your jaw during sleep by a intra oral appliance. The device works by gently supporting your jaw in a forward position during the night, which keeps your upper airway open.
In mild to moderate cases, an Intra Oral appliance can be especially useful in treating this life-threatening condition. Oral appliances are small, convenient, and fit right in your mouth, allowing you and your partner to sleep better. Oral appliance is also very handy for those who travel frequently as it can fit right in your bag and you do not have to carry a big CPAP machine with you.
