Snoring can be more than a nuisance – it can be an indicator of sleep apnea, a serious sleep condition that has a detrimental affect to our overall health and wellness. Those who suffer from sleep apnea aren’t just snoring – their airway becomes temporarily blocked, and breathing is interrupted.
Some patients can cure their sleep apnea simply by losing weight; others require surgery to remove excess soft tissue in the nose or throat. For many, however, the solution is simple therapy for sleep apnea. Redmond, WA patients can benefit from this innovative sleep apnea treatment from Dr. Files’ office.
Many doctors begin sleep apnea treatment by prescribing the use of a CPAP machine. This is basically a wind machine that forces extra ventilation down the patient’s airway, and requires the user to wear a face mask while sleeping. Unfortunately, use of a CPAP machine can make it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep, plus this method is a nuisance, cumbersome to travel with and it is anything but sexy. Dr. Jeffrey Files offers a more modern form of sleep apnea relief to Redmond, WA patients in the forms of the SomnoDent® oral device along with other treatments.
Therapy to Replace Your CPAP
- SomnoDent® Sleep Therapy
- TAP 3 Appliance
- SUAD Appliance
SomnoDent® is great for patients, but it’s not their only choice. SomnoDent®, the TAP 3 and SUAD appliance are all portable, effective and easy to use. Patients report relief after the first night, though it usually takes a few days to acclimate to the appliance. The SomnoDent® appliance allows jaws to open naturally, so you can speak and even take oral medication while wearing it. Request your consultation with your dentist in Redmond, WA, Dr. Files, to learn which of these oral appliances will help you sleep comfortably and safely.
