The Best Way to Treat Sleep Apnea? It’s With Something Small, Lightweight & Portable
PLEASE CALL (408) 910-8800 for a free consultation to learn if this is the right option for YOU!
Hello and thank you for responding to my ad. My name is Aldon Hilton and I am a dentist who was diagnosed with sleep apnea twenty years ago. Back then, the only option I was given was to treat sleep apnea was with a CPAP machine. Unfortunately, many medical doctors still think it is the only way, even though a recent study reported in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine “estimated that 50% of patients recommended for CPAP therapy are noncompliant 1-year later.”
Since 2001, I have been helping patients who have been diagnosed with sleep apnea with a FDA approved oral appliance; other names you may have heard are a mouthguard, mouth piece or a snore guard. I have personally tested over 25 sleep appliances even ones you can buy on the Internet. I know I can provide you with a custom fit mouthguard that will treat your symptoms.
What Is An Oral Appliance?
An oral appliance has been a medically approved option since 2005. I make ones that are made in the United States of two pieces of medical grade plastic. As you can see, it’s small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. This device fits comfortably over your upper and lower teeth.
This Is How An Oral Appliance Helps You Sleep Better
The oral appliance I make is like a small “door stop.” By gently cradling your lower jaw forward and keeping your tongue from slipping back, you can keep an open airway and get relief while you sleep from both snoring and sleep apnea. You can move your jaw from side to side, up, down and forward, but you can’t move it back to block your airway.
- Surprisingly, only a few millimeters are needed to accomplish this because the size of your airway is about the diameter of your little finger.
How Do You Know If You Have Sleep Apnea Or Just Snore?
The only way to determine if you have sleep apnea, is a sleep test. It’s the one document that confirms the medical diagnosis your medical insurance company needs in order to provide you with benefits.
I look forward to helping you lead a healthier and happier life. Please give me a call at (408) 910-8800.
