Get Relief Without a Clunky CPAP

CPAP is no longer the only option when it comes to treating your sleep apnea. Using a sleep apnea mouthpiece, Dr. Kirchner can give you the relief you’ve been looking for. This custom appliance will:

  • Fit comfortably in your mouth while you sleep
  • Gently move your lower jaw forward to help keep your airway open
  • Help you sleep better and feel better without a mask or noise
  • Give your partner a break from your snoring

Unlike a CPAP machine, there’s nothing to plug in and no special supplies like distilled water are necessary. A dental appliance is also easy to pack and take with you when you travel.

An Appliance Treats Sleep Apnea to Protect Your Health

Sleep apnea is a serious condition that shouldn’t be taken lightly. If not controlled, it can make you more susceptible to high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, diabetes, and even depression.

Obstructive sleep apnea, the most common form of this condition, occurs when your air passages become blocked while sleeping. Your tongue and soft tissues in the rear of your throat can relax to the point that they restrict your air. When this happens, sleep apnea sufferers often wake up momentarily with a loud snort, take in a few normal breaths, then fall back asleep. Usually, they’re not even aware of this process, although it can happen dozens of times per hour.
