The Alternative

A Comfortable Alternative To CPAP

Are you struggling with your sleep apnea treatment? Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines, while effective in keeping airways open, can pose challenges due to uncomfortable masks, dry mouth, and sleep disturbances.

Taking proactive steps early on is crucial for preventing sleep apnea and achieving lasting health improvements. CPAP, while effective in keeping airways open, often requires lifelong use and doesn't address the root issue. At our practice, we specialize in tailored alternatives to CPAP, providing personalized sleep solutions for a brighter, healthier future.

Sleep Apnea

How many people have sleep apnea?

1 in 5 adults have mild OSA
1 in 15 have moderate to severe OSA
9% of middle-aged women and 25% of middle-aged men suffer from OSA

Should snoring be ignored?

Snoring is not merely a loud and bothersome noise; it can serve as an important indicator of a Sleep Breathing Disorder (SBD) that should not be taken lightly. It is estimated that around 42 million Americans are affected by SBDs.

One of the most prevalent types of SBD is Obstructive Sleep Apnea, a medical condition in which the tongue and soft tissues obstruct the airway, preventing proper airflow into the lungs. Recognizing the potential seriousness of SBDs is crucial for prompt diagnosis and appropriate treatment. If you think sleep apnea might be a problem, it’s important, it’s important to get tested for sleep apnea as soon as possible.

What is sleep apnea's impact on my health?

  • Mild OSA is found in 70% of heart attack patients.
  • Sleep Apnea affects 86% of obese individuals with type 2 Diabetes.
  • Hypertension is present in 43% of patients with mild OSA.
  • Sleep Apnea is experienced by 48% of individuals with type 2 Diabetes.
  • Drowsy driving causes around 100,000 car accidents annually.
  • Individuals with Sleep Apnea are at a 4 times higher risk of stroke.
  • Untreated Sleep Apnea can lead to memory problems, weight gain, impotence, and headaches.
  • Over 20 years, untreated OSA can reduce survivability by 30% or more.
  • Drowsy driving results in 100,000 car accidents, 40,000 injuries, and 1,550 deaths yearly.
  • Approximately 38,000 deaths each year are associated with Sleep Apnea-related cardiovascular problems, including high blood pressure, hypertension, and stroke.

Can sleep apnea be cured?

A sleep doctor would say that sleep apnea usually can’t be fully cured, especially for severe cases. It’s something people manage over time, not get rid of completely.

The Vivos treatment is a newer way to help with sleep apnea. It’s not like the CPAP machine that you use every night. Instead, Vivos works on changing the shape of your mouth and airway slowly. This can make your sleep apnea better or even go away for some people.

It’s a hopeful option for those looking for something other than nightly machines or surgery, offering a chance at long-lasting improvement.

Is sleep apnea treatment covered by insurance?

Many insurance plans cover sleep apnea treatment, including CPAP and oral appliances, but coverage can vary. Check with your provider.
