Another common sleep apnea treatment is a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine. It keeps your airway clear with a constant stream of air. Your physician can help you determine which type of treatment is right for you. However, many people find sleep apnea mouthguards:
- More Comfortable – Some people find it tough to adjust to sleeping with a mask covering part of their face. A mouthguard also won’t dry out your mouth the way a CPAP can.
- More Convenient – You won’t need electricity or batteries to operate a mouthguard, so you can use it literally anywhere.
- Less Disruptive to Bedmates – With a mouthguard, your bedmate won’t be bothered by tubing or noise from a motor.
