Bellevue Residents Stop Snoring with Dental Sleep Apnea Treatment CPAP Alternatives
Snoring can be a sign that you have obstructive sleep apnea. Many people snore away unaware that it could be seriously affecting your health. There are numerous people having treatment performed for sleep disorders in Bellevue and the Seattle metro using a wide variety of treatment options. Some are using a CPAP, others have had surgery, some make lifestyle changes and others are being treated with an oral appliance made by a sleep apnea dentist.
That's right, a sleep apnea dentist! While a dentist can't diagnose sleep apnea, they are treating OSA by providing some patients with dental appliances that open up the airway while you sleep. The common proven method of treating sleep apnea is with a CPAP mask which can be very uncomfortable to wear. Dental sleep appliances or mouthpieces can be an alternative to CPAP if you are diagnosed with OSA.
Downtown Seattle dentist Dr. Jaime Lee is trained to provide these popular CPAP alternatives to her patients. The compliance rate for oral appliance therapy is higher than CPAP for obvious reasons. While some may dream of being a Top Gun pilot who wants to look like one when they go to bed.
If you snore or know of someone that does give Dr. Jaime Lee a call to arrange a sleep consultation. She provides Bellevue residents and Seattle area patients with sleep apnea treatment using oral appliance therapy. Watch a video of Dr. Jaime Lee discussing obstructive sleep apnea treatment below.
