Find Relief with Dr. Merrill
The CPAP machine has been the traditional method used for treating sleep apnea, but many find this treatment disruptive and the needed machine and oxygen mask cumbersome.The American Academy of Sleep Medicine designated dental oral sleep applicances as the No. 1 nonsurgical alternative for the CPAP intolerant.
Doctor Merrill recently completed training with the doctors of the Carolinas HealthCare System in using new CPAP alternatives such as oral sleep appliances to effectively treat sleep apnea for those who are CPAP intolerant.
A special sonar machine called a pharyngometer is used to measure the oropharyngeal airway. It is measured with and without your custom designed oral appliance to help Dr. Merrill customize the appliance to correctly and comfortably open your airway.
