Melbourne Dental Clinic
Sleep Apnoea Clinic
The comfortable alternative.
Its about your quality of life
Comfortable alternative to CPAP
Sleep apnoea used to be considered a bit of a nuisance. After all, sharing a bedroom with someone who sounds like a bear in hibernation is not much fun. But apnoea can be the cause of more serious health problems like heart arrhythmias, weight gain, extreme daytime fatigue and headaches.
CPAP machines cannot be tolerated by everyone. Now there is a comfortable alternative.
Oral Appliance Therapy
It’s a customised dental appliance fitted by a dentist that gently moves the jaw forward keeping the throat open and costs around the same as a CPAP machine.
