Treatment for Sleep Apnea

Good sleep hygiene, weight loss and exercise are some helpful treatments an individual can practice on their own. However medical and dental treatments include the use of a CPAP device, an oral appliance which holds the lower jaw out while sleeping(greatly reduces snoring too), and/or surgery which is the least desired treatment. CPAP is the gold standard of treatments, however many user never wear the device enough to help. An alternative is the use of an oral appliance that holds your lower jaw forward and opens the airway. This device has been FDA approved and the patient compliance is much better than CPAP.  It is also covered by most medical insurances.  Dr. Jon Monette
