Oral Appliances: Smaller, Less Noisy, and More Convenient Than CPAP
CPAP isn’t for everybody. In fact, many patients complain that it restricts their lifestyle. According to Harvard Medical School, “half or more of people who try CPAP don’t stick with the treatment.”
Many patients find our oral appliances to be an effective alternative to CPAP. It’s small, quiet, easy-to-use, and you can take it anywhere.
Instead of pumping air into the airway, an oral appliance gently repositions your mouth to keep the airway open. It’s portable, comfortable, convenient, and it doesn’t require electricity.

How can a dentist tell if you have sleep apnea?
A dentist can tell if you have sleep apnea because there are often signs of the disorder in your mouth and throat. Dentists are well-educated on the health of these areas, so they’re often the person who can best tell if something is wrong.
While your dentist may be able to point out signs of sleep apnea, you must be formally diagnosed by a qualified physician in order to receive treatment. The only way to do this is to undergo a sleep test and review the results with your physician.
Once you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea, Dr. Schumacher can develop a treatment plan just for you. With the help of a convenient oral appliance and some basic lifestyle changes, he can provide the relief you need to enjoy a sound night’s rest.
