3 Reasons to Deal With Your Sleep Apnea Today
You may be putting off dealing with your sleep apnea – maybe you’ve heard horror stories about CPAP machines and how difficult they can be for some people to use.

Read on in case you need some extra encouragement to make an appointment to get help at eos dental sleep!
3 reasons to get help now
1. If you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea (or just suspect you may have it), you may think it is, at most, an inconvenience. However, sleep apnea that is left untreated can lead to serious medical problems, such as high blood pressure, heart disease, strokes, and depression.
2. Have you thought about how much easier your daily life would be if you weren’t so tired all the time? You may not even realize how much sleep apnea is affecting your day-to-day functioning, much less your enjoyment of life. But lack of proper sleep can make a big difference!
3. There are alternatives to CPAP machines. Many people have tried CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machines and have found them difficult to sleep in, difficult to keep clean, difficult to travel with, and just uncomfortable and cumbersome to use. But CPAP isn’t your only choice for dealing with sleep apnea. Oral appliances for sleep apnea are noninvasive, comfortable, easy to wear, and very effective. An oral appliance is simply a plastic device that fits over the teeth, much like a mouth guard that is used in sports. It may take a few nights to adjust to your oral appliance, but most patients find that they don’t even notice they are wearing it once they get used to it.
If you have sleep apnea, don’t put off treatment anymore! Your sanity, your health, and your overall quality of life may depend on taking care of this problem as soon as possible. You can depend on eos dental sleep to help you find the right solution for you. Don’t wait – contact the Philadelphia office today at (215) 241-0700 for an appointment!
