Dental Sleep Medicine

Sleep apnea is the cessation of breathing during the sleep cycle. It is a serious medical condition that can be life threatening if not properly managed.

Most patients with sleep apnea receive a CPAP machine for treatment. The CPAP machine uses compressed air to keep nasal passages open to encourage regular breathing through the night. Often times, patients find these devices cumbersome and uncomfortable.

What most patients are unaware of is that there are options. Your dentist can help you get out of your CPAP and overcome your sleep apnea.

Dr. Shapira founded www.IHateCPAP.com after spending many years treating his patients with sleep apnea without the use of CPAP. He has trained many dentists around the country how to help their patients breath and sleep easier. If you are tired of your CPAP, contact Dr. Shapira today to learn about your sleep apnea treatment options.
