Advantages of a custom dental sleep device over CPAP are numerous. Not the least of which is that dental devices are sometimes preferred by more patients. Don’t get me wrong. CPAP is an effective therapy. But you have to wear it in order for it to be so. Most patients dislike it for any number of reasons and therefore, have a hard time to even comply. Dental sleep devices do not require electricity. So a camping trip, unless you have a generator, is out of the question. Personal reasons relating to closeness and accessibility with your bed partner are also frequently brought up by patients.
