CPAP for Sleep Apnea
When it comes to treating sleep apnea, no other nonsurgical methods compare to the effectiveness of CPAP. CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure and is the leading therapy for sleep apnea. With CPAP, you wear either a face mask, nasal mask, or prongs that fit into your nose while you sleep. The mask, which is connected to a pump, then provides a positive flow of air into your nasal passages in order to keep your airway open and help you breathe more easily during sleep.
Using a CPAP machine to treat your sleep apnea can help you sleep soundly, improve your life, and make each day better. It can help improve your daytime alertness, concentration, emotional stability, snoring, blood pressure. It can even lower your medical expenses. Not to mention, people who use a CPAP machine experience less daytime sleepiness, depression, and heart issues than those who do not use a CPAP machine.
Are you ready to take control of your sleep apnea and prevent or reverse all of the serious consequences that come with it? Then it’s time to use a CPAP machine for sleep apnea. Contact All Smiles Dentistry to learn more today!
