After the results of your sleep study, the sentence was in: CPAP, every night, life sentence.
At first, you might’ve felt relieved. Grateful, even. At some point, some geniuses invented a machine that helps you sleep better, and could even save your life! What a great time to be alive, you might have thought at the time…
And then you brought the thing home, hooked yourself up, and revved it up. Maybe it wasn’t instant for you, but a day, a week, a month later, it dawned on you: You’re going to pour distilled water into this thing’s gaping maw, and listen to that rumbling, sucking sound, for years to come.
Do you absolutely hate your CPAP machine? Try this simple fix for sleep apnea!
Mouth Guards Can Prevent Sleep Apnea
The CPAP is, of course, a safe, tried-and-true solution to sleep apnea. But frankly, it’s a one-size-fits-all solution. Another less intrusive solution is a mouth guard. Your dentist can fit you for a custom mouth guard that provides the correct adjustments to jaw and tongue position that many sleep apnea patients need to sleep safely and healthily.
