A Simple, Comfortable Solution for Obstructive Sleep Apnea
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OAS), Weston dentist Stephen J. Pyle DDS now offers the comfortable, effective SomnoDent dental appliance that provides instant relief. If you are currently using a CPAP device, imagine going to bed without wearing a mask and hooking up to a hose. The SomnoDent appliance allows you to sleep naturally without any external attachments and without the snoring.
Dr. Pyle’s Weston family dentistry practice was the first established in the community and remains as one of the most technically advanced practices offering the latest in state-of-the-art dental care. The SomnoDent appliance and Continuous Open Airway Therapy (COAT™) are natural additions to an already extensive list of dental services.
Sleep Apnea is About More Than Just Snoring
Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a condition that occurs when the soft tissue and muscle of the upper airway relax or even collapse during sleep obstructing the airway repeatedly stopping and starting breathing. Snoring is a byproduct of this condition which can be exceptionally annoying for a spouse but the bigger threat is the link to hypertension, diabetes, heart disease, work and driving related accidents and stroke.
It’s estimated that 30 million Americans suffer from this permanent condition.
Until SomnoDent was developed, the most common therapy for OSA was a system known as CPAP. This required the patient to wear a mask attached to an air pump by a hose. It is cumbersome, uncomfortable, difficult to travel with and as a result, less than 25% continue its use after 60 days.
Dr. Pyle wanted something that he could offer his patients that would be effective and comfortable enough for them to use long term. SomnoDent is that therapy. Here’s why:
- Custom-fit for your mouth
- Allows speech and drinking
- Easily adjusted
- Full lip seal
- 88% of patients reported regular use of SomnoDent device¹
- Discreet and silent
- Unique soft inner liner available
- This is a solution you can live with.
Dr. Pyle coordinates with your medical doctor to ensure the appliance is an appropriate therapy for you. If you currently are using a CPAP or if you think you have sleep apnea, call us for an appointment and explore what is available for you.
