CPAP Therapy isn’t the Only Solution

If you are having trouble dealing with CPAP Therapy, call and schedule an appointment with Chittenden Dental because you don’t have to deal with hoses and machines.

What is CPAP Therapy?

While Continuous Positive Airway Pressure, CPAP therapy works the machine is often left abandoned because it isn’t the most comfortable contraption in the world.

In addition, it can be easily forgotten and left in a drawer. If this happens obstructive sleep apnea once will become a chronic problem.

Although CPAP therapy devices have improved over the last couple of decade’s people with OSA are still unaware of its existence. Sadly this can sometimes interrupt sleep as much as the disorder itself.

Because the hose connected to the machine to a mask over the nose opens the back of the throat it allows a person with obstructive sleep apnea to breathe normally again.

What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

Your sleep medicine doctor in Burlington explains that OSA is something that affects billions of people. Unfortunately, some aren’t even aware they suffer.

For whatever reason, researchers aren’t quite sure why, those affected stop breathing while sleeping. This can happen multiple times every hour.

CPAP therapy provides relief, but for some that relief comes at a price. Unfortunately for those who can’t deal with the therapy OSA and its consequences will eventually return.
