Did you know that modern sleep apnea treatment no longer relies on bulky CPAP equipment?
Instead, at Pittsford Family Dental, we offer custom fitted oral appliances that are comfortable, promote quick results, and are covered by insurance. Even better, they make no noise. And most of all, they are portable — which means they can be used anywhere and anytime, resulting in continual treatment.
Many doctors worry that because CPAP machines are quite an inconvenience, patients may end up stalling or foregoing treatment, simply because of the commonly reported complaints (like bulkiness). Letting sleep apnea go untreated is, after all, the worst thing an OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) sufferer can do!
You should definitely take steps towards treating your sleep apnea. And after considering these common complaints and issues with CPAP machines, see what we have to offer that will change your life forever.
Untreated Sleep Apnea May Leave You At Risk For:
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease
- Chronic acid reflux
- Severe, untreated sleep apnea even increases your risk of death.
The team at Pittsford Family Dental works with your physician to provide a complete initial sleep evaluation to determine if you have obstructive sleep apnea. This may involve either an overnight sleep study at a sleep center or a home sleep apnea test. Our team interprets the data from your sleep study to make a diagnosis.
Once you are comfortable using the appliance, a repeat sleep evaluation is done to confirm the effectiveness of the sleep apnea device.
