If You've Already Been Diagnosed

If you've already been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea, you know what a CPAP Device is. CPAP is considered to be the "gold standard" of treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnea, but if you've ever used one, you know that it may not be the right solution for everyone.

It's been estimated that less than 50% of those prescribed a CPAP Device actually wear them as prescribed. If you've been prescribed a CPAP Device and find that it's too uncomfortable to wear each night, you need to find a new solution. Leaving your Sleep Apnea untreated is dangerous, and there IS another option for you!.

Oral Appliance Therapy is one of the 4 main treatments for

Sleep Apnea, along with behavioral modifications, CPAP, and surgery, and has proven to be more comfortable and acceptable for many Sleep Apnea patients worldwide.

Oral Appliance Therapy is our primary form of treatment for Sleep Apnea at Babylon Dental Care, and we specialize in providing a variety of custom Oral Appliance options to fit virtually every mouth!.

If You've Never Heard of CPAP...

If you're new to the world of Sleep Apena you may be wondering, what is CPAP? You've heard the abbreviation, but you're not sure what it actually means.

CPAP stands for "continuous positive airway pressure". CPAP is a breathing therapy device that delivers air to a mask worn over the nose and/or mouth to help consistent breathing. It's used primarily for Sleep Apena, but also in the treatment of other breathing conditions.

CPAP has been the primary form of treatment prescribed for Sleep Apnea, but not many can tolerate it. Most people who have tried to use CPAP devices find them incredibly uncomfortable, and are unable to live with them long term, meaning they continue dealing with the negative effects of Sleep Apnea, such as high blood pressure, anxiety and depression, or decreased mental clarity as well as the risk of death or diabetes.
