CPAP Alternative

Oral appliance therapy is an alternative treatment to CPAP to address obstructive sleep apnea. Say goodbye to clunky hardware that makes sleeping a challenge. We offer a comfortable solution for sleep apnea patients who are intolerant or refusing CPAP.


Studies show that 80% of people with sleep apnea that receive a CPAP device find it uncomfortable and will not use it. Reasons for CPAP intolerance frequently cited by patients include:

  • Mask leaks (and/or an inability to get a mask to fit properly)
  • Claustrophobia
  • Uncomfortable straps and headgear
  • Latex allergies
  • Noise from the CPAP machine that disturbs sleep of the patient (or his/her bed partner)
  • Restricted movement during sleep because of the CPAP apparatus

If you have tried CPAP and found that it simply does not work for you, an oral appliance is your best option. The oral appliance is considered Durable Medical Equipment (DME) and is covered by most medical and Medicare insurance plans.
