Sleep Apnea, Snoring and Alternatives to CPAP

Flex-with-new-logoMillions suffer from the effects of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) yet few are aware of the potential health hazards. The warning signs of OSA include frequent and loud snoring, daytime sleepiness and waking during the night gasping for breath. Left untreated, obstructive sleep apnea can lead to memory loss, decrease sex drive, hypertension, stroke, heart attack or even sudden death while asleep.

Oral appliance therapy (OAT) is accepted and recommended by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) as treatment for mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and in cases where patients are unable to tolerate CPAP therapy. Oral appliances are also effective for patients who snore but do not suffer from OSA. The appliances are custom fit and work by advancing the lower jaw to keep the airway open during sleep. They are small, comfortable, silent and easy to carry when traveling.

Oral Appliance therapy is often covered by medical insurance and Dr. Levin is a Medicare approved provider for this vital treatment.
