Providing Effective Sleep Apnea Treatment in Riverside, IL
If you have recently been diagnosed with sleep apnea or are looking for a simpler alternative to a CPAP machine, an oral appliance (mandibular advancement device) may be the answer. Dr. Gilbert Lafemina provides this solution for his sleep apnea patients and will work with your doctor to develop a custom treatment plan just for you.
What are Oral Appliances for Sleep Apnea?
Oral appliances or splints can effectively treat sleep apnea. Worn at night, mandibular advancement devices work by adjusting the position of your jaw to prevent obstruction from occurring while you sleep.
Oral Appliance Therapy can Help Most People with Sleep Apnea
While a CPAP machine is required for some cases, most sleep apnea patients who have tried an oral splint device have gained control over this troublesome condition and achieved better sleep quality after switching to treatment with an oral appliance.
Versatility and Convenience
Oral appliance therapy can be used as an alternative to or in conjunction with a CPAP machine. Our devices are easy to travel with and can fit into a shaving or cosmetic bag. This device needs no electricity to work so it won’t stop working if the power goes out.
