Say Goodbye to Sleepless Nights with a CPAP Alternative

Are you or someone you know struggling to get a good night's sleep due to snoring or sleep apnea? If you've had difficulties with CPAP machines and are seeking an effective alternative, look no further. At Indy Dental Group, our team specializes in providing solutions for patients like you. With oral appliance therapy, you can enjoy a more restful night's sleep using a compact, comfortable, and user-friendly device. To learn more, simply keep reading or reach out to our office!

How Does Oral Appliance Therapy Work?

Upon receiving a diagnosis of sleep apnea, we’ll assess the most suitable treatment method. In most cases, we’ll likely suggest oral appliance therapy. This compact device, custom-made to align perfectly with your dental needs, is worn in your mouth during sleep. Resembling a mouthguard, it securely fits over your teeth.

By gently repositioning your jaw to a slightly forward position, the appliance keeps your airway open, effectively preventing interruptions in your breathing while you sleep throughout the night.

What Are the Advantages Over CPAP?

Compared to CPAP machines, oral appliance devices offer several notable advantages. Here's why they stand out:

What Is the Process for Getting a Custom-Made Oral Appliance?

If you suspect you have sleep apnea, don't hesitate to reach out for a consultation. During your visit, our team will assess your airway to determine if oral appliance therapy is the appropriate solution. If sleep apnea is suspected, we may recommend a sleep study or further assessments. If not, we will proceed to take an impression of your mouth and create a customized device, which will be ready for use within a week.

Wondering about additional testing requirements before receiving an oral appliance? This step becomes necessary if there's a possibility of sleep apnea. A sleep study, conducted by a sleep doctor, will provide the necessary insights. Once the results are analyzed, we can initiate treatment if sleep apnea is confirmed.
