Sleep Apnea Appliances (CPAP Alternatives)Rockville, MD
Our experienced dentist, Dr. Parikh, is a member of the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine and a diplomat of the American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine. He specializes in creating comfortable, convenient oral appliances and CPAP alternatives for patients who suffer from sleep apnea and snoring. These appliances are worn only while you are asleep to open your airway and prevent sleep apnea and snoring. CPAP alternatives are often an ideal solution for patients who suffer from sleep apnea or are CPAP intolerant.
Why choose a CPAP alternative? Here are a few reasons:
CPAP alternatives are covered by most medical insurances, including Medicare and Medicaid. These portable appliances use no tubes, masks, or electricity, making them an effective and convenient CPAP alternative. Our CPAP alternatives are here to help you and prevent any unnecessary relationship or health problems that result from snoring or sleep apnea.
