Have you been told you suffer from mild to moderate sleep apnea? Tired of dealing with a bulky, annoying CPAP machine? At the practice of Jeff Lewis, DDS we are proud to offer an alternative to typical sleep apnea treatment in Houston, our sleep apnea mouthguards can be the perfect solution for those with mild to moderate sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea is a common medical condition which results in the airway being blocked, this results in a lack of air and oxygen to the lungs, brain and rest of the body. Left untreated, sleep apnea can be very severe and increase a patient’s risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack and even stroke. Wondering if you or a loved one may be suffering from sleep apnea? Common symptoms include:
A CPAP machine (continuous positive airway pressure) is a device used to treat sleep apnea which forces air into a face mask which patients wear while sleeping. The air pressure being delivered is high, overcoming obstruction of the airway. CPAP machines and masks can be quite cumbersome and require lots of cleaning and setting up.
With sleep apnea mouthguards, you can skip the annoying face mask and noisy machine and still experience relief.
