For people diagnosed with severe OSA, a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Machine is recommended as the most suitable treatment solution.
A CPAP machine has a small, quiet air pump, a tube and face mask that fits comfortably over the nose (and sometimes the mouth). It’s designed to pump a constant flow of low pressure air into the throat. This prevents the airway from collapsing and also stops snoring instantly.
The CPAP machine does not cure Sleep Apnoea. If you stop using it, snoring and Sleep Apnoea will re-occur.
If you or a family member is suffering from Sleep Apnoea, call (03) 9888 5677 to schedule a consultation with our dental team. We are located at 1/92 Balwyn Rd, Balwyn VIC 3103.
