Get a Sleep Apnea Appliance For Convenient & Comfortable Treatment

Two of the most commonly suggested treatments for sleep apnea are a CPAP machine and a sleep apnea appliance. If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea, Dr. Sipes can create a custom-made appliance for you. It keeps your airway open as you sleep by gently shifting your jaw forward. In contrast, a CPAP uses a stream of compressed air.

Many people find a sleep apnea appliance:

  • Less Invasive Than a CPAP – There’s no need to wear a mask over your face with an appliance and no tubing to deal with.
  • More Comfortable Than a CPAP – You won’t have to worry about irritation from a mask that doesn’t fit well or waking with a dry throat from the air intake.
  • Easier to Use Than a CPAP – You won’t need an electrical outlet or batteries for an appliance.

Those who suffer from more severe cases of sleep apnea often find the most relief by using a CPAP and an appliance together. Dr. Sipes is happy to work with a sleep doctor to treat more advanced cases.
