Your sleep at night can be greatly improved with the use of a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine. There are other options as well besides an attached mask at night. Talk to our dentist, Dr. Bartholemew Schultz, or one of our professionals here at Smiles of Distinction to find what option is best for you.
One of the other options include surgery to remove or alter the throat tissue to make breathing easier as well as being fitted for an oral appliance by your dentist that is portable, well-fitted, and doesn’t make noise at night. If someone sleeps near you, this is very convenient for them as well. Another option is simply laying on your side as a type of positional remedy.
A CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) device can be in the form of a nasal or nasal prong mask, a full-face mask, or a nasal pillow. Each alternative is adjusted specifically to your face and breathing so they don’t impact the prodding of the dental arches or incisors, changing the jawline.
