Treat Your Obstructive Sleep Apnea Without A CPAP
You’ve tried. You really have.
After you were diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, you got a CPAP machine to help you snore less and rest easier. That was the idea, at least.
Sometimes, that has been the case. Other times, the machine became a source of frustration in its own way. Perhaps your mask is irritating to wear. Maybe you don’t like the sound your machine makes. Or maybe the feeling air being pushed into your airway makes it harder for you to fall asleep.
If you aren’t using your CPAP, then you aren’t treating your sleep disorder, either. Maybe you should schedule a consultation with Dr. David Miller at our Roseville, CA office to discuss an alternative to your CPAP machine.

Avoid The Annoyances Of A CPAP
CPAP machines can be a great way to treat and manage sleep apnea … but only if you use your machine nightly. Unfortunately, half of all CPAP users give up on this treatment option, according to the American Sleep Apnea Association.
In other words, you are not alone if you aren’t happy with your machine.
By coming to see Dr. Miller, we can give you a simpler solution, so you can sleep better at night. By making a custom oral appliance for you, you can avoid the annoyances that can come with a CPAP. When you wake up feeling refreshed and rested, you’ll appreciate the benefits of treatment.
Your spouse or significant other is likely to sleep better, too, when you aren’t snoring or fighting with your machine.
A Proven Approach
While it’s true that CPAP machines are often the first option for treating sleep apnea, it’s nice to know you have other options as well.
To use a sports analogy, imagine a football team has prepared for a game only to discover that their opponent has scouted them extremely well. The other team is able to stop them from doing what they want to do to win. Should that team keep doing the same thing or make adjustments that will help them achieve their goal?
If a CPAP isn’t working for you, then an oral appliance could be the right answer to reach your goal of healthy, high-quality sleep.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine considers oral appliances a first-line treatment for patients who have mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. These appliances also are good for patients who have severe OSA and who have difficulty using a CPAP.
However you treat your sleep disorder, the main thing is that you are treating it. When left untreated, sleep apnea raises your risk for a number of other health issues, such as high blood pressure, heart attacks, cardiovascular disease, and strokes.
