Embury Family Dentistry offers CPAP therapy. The top treatment for sleep apnea, many people in New York have found relief with CPAP. This machine uses a breathing machine to provide continuous positive air pressure all night long; all you do is breathe through a sleep mask. CPAP allows you to breathe normally throughout the night. That means that you sleep more soundly, snore less, and feel more rested and refreshed the next day.
The CPAP machine itself is relatively small. There are different types of CPAP masks; some cover both the nose and mouth, others just the nose. We’ll help you find a CPAP mask that is comfortable for you, and we’ll ensure that it fits properly. If it doesn’t, you won’t have a good seal, and the pressurized air may escape before it ever reaches your lungs.
That is part of the reason why the FDA regulates CPAP machines. CPAP treatment requires a prescription. Fortunately, Embury Family Dentistry can provide that, as well as monitoring your treatment to make sure you’re getting the most out of it.
Some types of CPAP machines include a computer that monitors your breathing at night. We can then review this information to learn more about your sleeping patterns and how well your sleep apnea treatment is working. And even if CPAP isn’t right for you, we can discuss other breathing machines and sleep apnea therapies.
If you’re ready to start sleeping better, give us a call. We’d be happy to schedule an appointment to talk about sleep apnea and what your treatment options are.
