Sleep Apnea Treatment Options

A sleep study and physician diagnosis determine if your health is at risk from the effects of sleep apnea. Once the condition is diagnosed, the next step is to determine the right treatment for your needs. Sleep apnea treatment options include:

Oral Appliance Therapy

Type of mouth guard custom made to keep the lower jaw in optimal position during sleep. Oral appliances pull the lower jaw and tongue forward, preventing soft tissues from falling into the airway. This treatment is recommended for those with mild to moderate sleep apnea, or who are CPAP intolerant.

Are You CPAP Intolerant?

Many patients respond well to CPAP therapy for sleep apnea. However, some find they are intolerant to the mask during sleep. Dr. Stampe has helped a number of CPAP intolerant patients find the relief they need for a better night’s rest. In these cases, Dr. Stampe offers sleep apnea mouth guards (oral appliances) as a CPAP alternative.
