What is CPAP?
Oftentimes, the first solution prescribed to sleep apnea patients is a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) device. A CPAP machine uses a constant flow of air connected to a mask worn by the patient while they sleep. The air pressure prevents your airway from collapsing.
Surgical and Non-surgical treatment Options for Sleep Apnea
CPAP through a Physician
Oral Appliance therapy through a trained and certified dentist
Surgical option for severe cases
What are the Alternatives to CPAP?
While CPAP therapy is effective for many patients, it is not always the ideal treatment. Common complaints from CPAP users include having trouble wearing the mask throughout the night and waking up with a dry throat. The great news is that there are a wide variety of CPAP alternatives for our patients in Southfield. Outside of surgical options, there are a number of oral appliances we can use to restore your rest.
Even though 99% of doctors want patients to try it first, 50% of C-PAP users can't tolerate it
Compliance with CPAP is 50%
Compliance with an appliance is greater than 80%
What is an Oral Appliance?
An oral appliance is a custom-made dental device worn during the night. There are many different designs, but they all are designed to open your airway to prevent snoring and sleep apnea.

We understand that every patient is different and requires a unique approach to treatment. For patients that have a hard time with CPAP therapy, we have a range of oral appliances to treat snoring and sleep apnea.
