Stop Snoring, Sleep Better with Sleep Apnea Therapy in Covington, LA
Do you wish your spouse or loved one would give you the silent treatment? Is snoring keeping you up at night? Are you on the verge of separate bedrooms? Snoring, stopping breathing during sleep, waking up snorting or gasping for breath are all indications of obstructive sleep disorders, such as obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This is a potentially life-threatening medical condition that can lead to hypertension, heart attack, stroke, depression, muscle pain, fibromyalgia, morning headaches and excessive daytime sleepiness. But it just may be something Dr. Moreau can help you overcome, even when medical solutions have failed. Millions of Americans are affected by sleep apnea, yet many go undiagnosed. Of those who are diagnosed, common treatment is with a CPAP breathing apparatus worn during sleep. But more than half the people prescribed CPAP (up to 87% in some studies) are mask-intolerant and end up not using it. And without treatment, the risk of early death rises significantly.
Kiss Your CPAP Goodbye
There are a number of oral appliances that have proved effective in resolving sleep apnea and snoring without the use of the CPAP. A custom-fitted appliance can cure snoring by either advancing the jaw or holding the tongue still during sleep, allowing your airway to remain open. Dr. Moreau will be able to evaluate and recommend the device that would be best suited for your condition. We will ensure proper fit, train you to use the oral appliance at home, and monitor improvement with follow-ups.
We'll work with your physician and your medical insurance carrier to provide an oral device that's:
- Proven to increase sleep quality
- Comfortable and easy to wear
- Easy to travel with
- Does not limit sleep positions
- FDA and Medicare approved
If you feel you suffer from sleep apnea or some other breathing/sleep disorder, have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, or cannot tolerate your CPAP machine, contact Dr. Moreau today to schedule a thorough evaluation.
