Don’t Hide from Sleep Apnea Treatment
Many patients walk through the doors of our Georgetown SC and Murrells Inlet SC dentist offices afraid of four little letters: CPAP. The uncomfortable mask, loud machine, and general embarrassment cause people to fear treatment for sleep apnea. Luckily, there are other options.
Dr. Miller is here to help you find comfortable treatment that WORKS for you. For some patients, CPAP is the best solution, but many patients benefit from oral appliance treatment. This option is more comfortable, less obvious, and highly effective for sleep apnea treatment.
Effects of Sleep Apnea
Ignoring the snoring doesn’t make it go away. In fact, sleep apnea can be deadly. Simply not breathing while sleeping can result in death, but sleep apnea is more likely to cause other serious problems, including:
- Heart disease
- Sleep-related car accidents
