The Simple Sleep Solution™ – Continuous Open Airway Treatment (oral appliance therapy)

Custom-fitted dental devices have proven to be a successful obstructive sleep apnea treatment for many OSA sufferers and snorers. They are less cumbersome and more comfortable than other alternatives such as CPAP or surgery. At Simple Sleep Services, we can recommend a device that is most appropriate for your individual situation. Our solutions are proven to be effective and are FDA cleared Class II medical devices that have many advantages including:

  • Insurance: Most private insurance plans cover Continuous Open Airway Treatment (COAT) at Simple Sleep Services. We can find out for you if you’re covered.
  • Comfort: Many patients who have tried Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) treatment and found it too uncomfortable or too cumbersome have found success with oral appliance therapy.
  • Fast Results: Most patients grow accustomed to the COAT within a few days or weeks and it begins providing relief from sleep disordered breathing immediately.
  • Portable: Unlike the more cumbersome CPAP device that requires electricity, the oral device fits in a pocket and can be taken anywhere, making travel much more feasible.
  • Ease of Use: Patients can drink and talk while wearing the device, unlike some of the other treatment options.
  • Silent and Less Noticeable: OSA sufferers and their sleep partners are sometimes bothered by the noise and presence of breathing devices like the CPAP.

At Simple Sleep Services our proven devices add another dimension to Obstructive Sleep Apnea Therapy. In most cases, we will select a device that allows patients to talk, drink, open and close their lips, making this, in many users opinion, the most comfortable option available to treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea.

OTHER OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA TREATMENT OPTIONS

Lifestyle Changes:

  • Lose weight
  • Stop smoking
  • Avoid alcohol
  • Avoid sleeping on your back and use an elevated bed
  • Avoid taking sleeping pills

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP):

In a treatment called Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP), patients wear a specialized mask over the nose and face during sleep. The mask is connected to a device that delivers a steady supply of air, keeping the airway open. CPAP treatment is usually very successful, provided the patient is willing to use it correctly and consistently.

Upper Airway Surgery:

Several different “snoring surgery” options exist and are determined by each patient’s specific problem. Some surgeries are minimal, while others involve more serious risks. Most patients report that these procedures are painful and have mediocre results. The pillar procedure and UPPP are not recognized by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine as first line therapies for obstructive sleep apnea.
