Oral Appliances: Quiet, Convenient, and Easier than CPAP
CPAP is the most common treatment for sleep apnea, but as many as 83% of CPAP users have a hard time using their machine for more than four hours per night. In fact, it’s common for patients to stop using CPAP altogether because they find it loud, uncomfortable, restrictive, and irritating.
Dr. Ura offers an alternative to CPAP for patients with mild to moderate sleep apnea or those with severe sleep apnea who are CPAP intolerant. Oral appliances are a modern, comfortable solution that offers a number of benefits, including:
- Incredibly easy to use

Frequently Asked Questions
Can dentists treat sleep apnea?
Yes, specialized sleep dentists offer treatment options for snoring and sleep apnea. Dental sleep medicine is an area of dental practice that focuses on the use of oral appliance therapy to treat sleep-disordered breathing, including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Dentists work together with physicians to determine the best treatment option available for you.
Dr. Ura is able to provide alternative options for those who dislike their CPAP. These oral appliances are similar to mouthguards, but they’re created uniquely to treat sleep apnea by keeping your airway open. Dr. Ura can also provide guidance on how you can alleviate your sleep apnea symptoms through lifestyle changes.
How can a dentist tell if you have sleep apnea?
Dentists can recognize common symptoms of sleep apnea, but the only way to determine whether you have the condition is to take a sleep study. It’s an overnight test that monitors your body while you sleep to detect any issues. A qualified physician will review your sleep patterns and provide you with a formal diagnosis.
Once you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea, Dr. Ura will work with your physician to help formulate your treatment plan.
