Dr. Mayoor Patel helps patients with sleep apnea by offering oral appliance therapy at Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Center of Georgia.
ATLANTA, GA, July 11, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- When patients suffer from sleepless nights due to sleep apnea, Dr. Mayoor Patel has a solution. Sleep apnea isn't only treated with CPAP; instead, Dr. Patel invites his patients to visit Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Center of Georgia for oral appliance therapy. The availability of oral appliance therapy allows Dr. Patel to successfully treat his patients that are suffering from sleep apnea.
"Many of my patients either don't know they have sleep apnea, or they currently cannot tolerate a CPAP machine for treatment. As a dental sleep medicine professional, I want my patients to better understand their options for treatment that may meet their needs better than CPAP. With oral appliance therapy, my patients can comfortably receive treatment without the need for the CPAP machine," said Dr. Mayoor Patel, an expert on sleep apnea in Atlanta.
At Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Center of Georgia, Dr. Mayoor Patel offers several oral appliances that will best meet a patient's individual sleep apnea needs. Currently, Dr. Patel offers the following oral appliances:
- Herbst Appliance
- Elastic Mandibular Advancement (EMA)
- Dorsal Appliance
- Narval Appliance
- TAP 3 Elite
Each appliance is available at Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Center of Georgia so that patients can get a better night's sleep every day of the year. To better understand each oral appliance, Dr. Patel encourages patients to visit http://www.atlantatmjfacepain.com/types-of-sleep-apnea-appliances.html or contact his office at (678) 899-6076.
A patient's first consultation will require impressions of the teeth, which will be used to create a model. The model will then be created in a dental lab where an oral appliance is made to match the exact duplication of your teeth. Each oral appliance has its own unique advantages and disadvantages, but will all have the same effect-to open the airway by moving the lower jaw forward. By scheduling a consultation with Dr. Mayoor Patel, a proper oral appliance treatment plan can be created to best meet each individual patient's needs.
Dr. Mayoor Patel encourages everyone to visit Craniofacial Pain and Dental Sleep Center of Georgia to be assessed for a custom oral appliance to aide in the treatment of sleep apnea for a better night's sleep and improved health.
