An alternative to C-PAP for sleep apnea
Sleep apnea is a serious condition that causes you to momentarily stop breathing during sleep. This can occur hundreds of times during the night, and it can lead to daytime fatigue, heart attack or even a stroke. A common cause of sleep apnea is anatomical obstruction of the airway.
Custom-made night guard
If you suffer from sleep apnea, Dr. Adibe can perform a thorough assessment and recommend a specially designed night guard that repositions your lower jaw to improve airflow and help restore normal breathing during sleep. This intraoral sleep apnea appliance is custom-made for each patient.
This noninvasive – and much more comfortable – alternative is welcome news for many people who must use C-PAP machines, including sleep masks with replaceable tubing and filters that require ongoing maintenance. Many patients also find C-PAP uncomfortable to wear.
