Sleep apnea affects more than 8 million people in America, and many use a CPAP machine, but a new alternative treatment might lead to a more successful night of sleep without the hassle of the machine.
The Doctors welcome cosmetic dentist Dr. Sid Solomon who shares that 50 percent of people who are prescribed a CPAP machine stop wearing it after just 1 to 3 weeks of use. Common issues with these machines include the large mask being difficult to wear, the noise, and a buildup of bacteria in the equipment.
Instead, Dr. Solomon says an elastic mandibular advancement (EMA) device can help open someone's airway while sleeping by knowing precisely how much someone's jaw needs to be open and pushed forward after. He notes the device is small, makes no sound, and can travel well. He says most types of insurance will cover an EMA.
If you are having sleep issues like sleep apnea, please speak with your doctor about which solution might be best for you.
