Do you wake up feeling like a zombie, even after a full night's rest? Snoring and sleep apnea may be to blame. There are many snore solutions and over-the-counter treatments available, but the most effective way to diagnose and treat these issues is to have a sleep study done by a doctor. Depending on the results of the study, your doctor may recommend a CPAP machine or an oral appliance to help alleviate your symptoms. Here are some reasons why an oral appliance combined with sleeping on your side may be the right choice for you:
Combining two therapies, an oral appliance and Rematee body position, can offer even better results. Here are some reasons why this combination might be the right choice for you:
Comfort: Some patients find CPAP machines uncomfortable due to the forced air and the mask covering their face. Oral appliances are designed to fit your jaw and do not interfere with your sleep position, while the Rematee body positioner helps keep you in the optimal position for better breathing.
Ease of use: Oral appliances are small and portable, making them easy to take with you wherever you go. They do not require batteries or an electrical outlet, so you can use them without any hassle. The Rematee body positioner is also easy to use and can be easily adjusted to fit your body.
Easy for travel: CPAP machines can be bulky and inconvenient to travel with, but oral appliances and Rematee body positioners are small enough to fit in a purse or jacket pocket. Patients usually have no trouble bringing them through TSA.
Cleaning: Oral appliances are easy to clean and maintain. Simply soak them in a denture cleaner or brush them with an appliance brush, which is usually included with the appliance. CPAP machines require more thorough cleaning and maintenance. The Rematee body positioner can be easily cleaned with soap and water.
Effective for all levels of sleep apnea: While CPAP machines are typically used to treat severe sleep apnea, oral appliances and Rematee body positioners can be used for all levels of sleep apnea, including mild to moderate cases.
Covered by most medical insurance: Oral appliances and Rematee body positioners are medically necessary treatments for sleep apnea and are usually covered by medical insurance.
Noise-free: CPAP machines can be noisy, which can make it difficult to sleep. Oral appliances are silent and do not interfere with your sleep, and the Rematee body positioner is also quiet and does not make any noise.
Durable: Oral appliances and Rematee body positioners are made of strong materials and built to last for years with proper care. Combining these two therapies can provide an effective and durable solution for your sleep apnea.
You can take any oral appliance and a Rematee sleep aid with you wherever you go, they pack in your suitcase and weigh less than one pound.
