If so, a custom fitted oral appliance may provide you with the comfort and relief you are looking for.   Dr. Mason uses flexible oral devices designed to keep your airway open by positioning your jaw gently forward during sleep.  Each device is custom fabricated, precision fitted and evaluated for each patient to ensure effectiveness and optimal comfort.

CPAP Alternatives

Patients who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea may have been prescribed a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine to wear during sleep.  While this can serve as an effective treatment when used consistently,  some individuals find the machine and its accompanying mask bulky, noisy, or uncomfortable.CPAP Alternative for Sleep Apnea  As many as 55% of those diagnosed with sleep apnea are unable to tolerate the CPAP or want an alternative solution.

If you are CPAP intolerant and interested in learning more about alternative options, oral appliances, such as the SomnoMed appliance should be considered.   Oral appliances are also favored by those who travel due to the convenient nature of design and application.

Make an appointment today to consider your options.  We’re here to help you return to a healthy night’s sleep.
