CPAP Intolerance Los Angeles
Although CPAP is recognized as the most effective option for obstructive sleep apnea, many people suffer from CPAP intolerance. At Snore Experts, our goal is to provide effective treatments and solutions for sleep apnea. That is why we offer effective alternative options to CPAP.
What Is Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP)?
A CPAP machine is a medical device that delivers continuous positive airway pressure through a facemask or nasal tube attached to a pump. The device is usually placed next to the bed. The CPAP machine is plugged into any standard electrical outlet and the mask is worn whenever you sleep or nap. Proper adjustment of the CPAP mask and machine are vital to achieving maximum clinical benefit and can only be done in a physician’s office.
While the CPAP is the most effective form of treatment for obstructive sleep apnea, the downside is more than 50% of patients that undergo CPAP treatment are unable to tolerate it. For those who are not comfortable with CPAP treatment, Snore Experts’ custom oral devices can be a perfect alternative to provide symptomatic relief and medical benefits.
Alternative Options for Treating Sleep Apnea
Due to the high rate of patients who are CPAP intolerant, there are multiple alternative treatments for sleep apnea. We offer Snore Experts appliances that have been developed and designed to provide real results and relief from sleep apnea. Options include:
- Mandibular advancement devices
- The Snore Experts “Hybrid” appliance
Our Snore Experts appliances have a 90% to 95% success rate and have helped thousands of people who suffer from sleep apnea get the good night’s rest that they need.
Treating Sleep Apnea with NightLase
NightLase reduces the effects of sleep apnea and decreases the amplitude of snoring by means of a gentle, laser-induced tightening effect caused by the contraction of collagen in the oral mucosa tissue.
Performed by a Snore Experts Doctor, NightLase is simple, safe, and effective. The systems patented Er:YAG laser modality optimizes the length of laser pulses, allowing for the safe penetration of heat into the oral mucosa tissue. It is gentle enough to be used on the sensitive tissue inside the mouth, but strong enough to provide clinically efficacious heating.
NightLase is easy to perform, requires no down time to patients, and has a high-success rate in producing a positive change in sleep patterns. Research has shown that NightLase reduces and attenuates snoring and provides an effective and non-invasive way to lessen the effects of sleep apnea.
