Many people avoid treating their sleep apnea or snoring because they’re worried it’ll mean wearing a CPAP mask for the rest of their life.
The good news is that the majority of people diagnosed with sleep apnea have what’s called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA).
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is caused by a physical blockage or collapse of the upper airway.
This prevents air from getting into the lungs causing disruption in sleep and resulting in excessive sleepiness or fatigue during the day.
The other type of sleep apnea is Central Sleep Apnea (CSA), which is a neurological condition that stops breathing. In this case, the area of the brain controlling breathing shuts down, causing no respiratory effort or breathing. This is much more rare than Obstructive Sleep Apnea.
If you do have Obstructive Sleep Apnea, the good news is that you likely do NOT need a CPAP machine to treat it. Most people with OSA can be treated using a simple Oral Sleep Appliance.
An Oral Sleep Appliance positions the jaw so the airway stays open throughout sleep. With these simple appliances, you can breathe freely throughout the night.
They’re also covered by most insurance companies and approved by the American Medical Associaton.

Why You Shouldn't Leave Your Sleep Apnea Untreated
Sleep apnea is a serious condition and should not be taken lightly.
There are several long-term consequences that you are at risk for because of the decreased oxygen your body experiences throughout the night:
* High blood pressure
* Heart disease and heart attack
* Fatigue-related motor vehicle and work accidents
* Decreased quality of life – depression, irritability, loss of memory, lack of energy, or a high risk of auto and workplace accidents
The good news is that most people with sleep apnea can easily solve the problem with an Oral Sleep Appliance.
