What is Sleep Apnea?

Patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have repeated episodes of partial or complete obstruction of the throat during sleep. If partial or complete obstructions occur breathing is reduced or stops for a short time, from 10 seconds up to a minute or more as a result. These episodes of obstruction may happen many times – even hundreds of times per night.

If you have OSA you may snore, be restless and others may notice that you stop breathing during the night. Because of the disruptive effects of OSA on sleep you may find yourself waking up often during the night, sometimes gasping or choking, although this does not always happen. However, even if there are few awakenings overnight, sleep is disturbed and you may wake up feeling unrefreshed because of this. Even if you have had a full night’s sleep. As the day goes on, you may struggle to stay awake, especially in the afternoon. Grumpiness and other mood changes are common in untreated OSA

Some people know that their breathing is not normal at night, but may be unaware that this is a medical problem that is causing them harm. Fortunately, good treatments are available.

Can ApneaRx treat Sleep Apnea?

Yes! Oral appliances are a popular option that will work best for patients wanting to treat mild to moderate sleep apnea and snoring. They are also called Mandibular Advancement Devices (MAD) or Mandibular Repositioning Appliances (MRA). They look a bit like a mouth guard. They gently hold your lower jaw in a slightly forward position, opening your airway to breathe easier at night and stop snoring. There is less risk of vibration (snoring) or obstruction.

Differences between CPAP Machine and ApneaRx

ApneaRx has specially designed technology which is patented called Mandibular Repositioning technology. This means that the ApneaRx can be adjusted to suit the patients sleep apnea without having to remould and guess the ultimate position. Similar devices from Dentists could cost up to $1500 not including servicing and dental fees.

CPAP machine alternatives should be used for patients suffering from severe sleep apnea but are not necessary for patients seeking mild to moderate sleep apnea treatment. This could save you thousands of dollars. The ApneaRx a much cheaper alternative, convenient and portable option which will give you relief from your snoring and sleep apnea by allowing more air to flow through by gently holding your lower jaw forward. No need to wear a cumbersome, annoying, and loud face mask when you can wear an adjustable mouth guard.

There are also other cheaper alternatives which do not allow you to adjust the device and create the most comfortable position unless you remould the mouth guard. The remoulding process can only be repeated up to three times until the device is no longer usable. ApneaRx is made with dental grade copolymers which ensures high quality and longevity. It allows you to re adjust the mouth guard without remoulding.

This product is a game changer, a life changer and a marriage cemented. I have looked and tried so many different products and to no avail. The first night with this thing of beauty and my wife and I are so very happy being in the same bed again..

My husband has obstructive sleep apnea, the ApneaRX stops him snoring. I used to lose sleep listening to him snoring and choking, worrying if he was going to keep breathing. Best sleep I've had in years. We both feel better in the morning. Definitely recommend it.

I previously used a CPAP machine, I have now replaced CPAP machine with the ApneaRX and can take this with me anywhere I go. Easy to use, comfortable when sleeping. It has exceeded all my expectations.

My wife was getting worried/scared about my breathing episodes while I was sleeping. My doctor said I should look at getting a CPAP machine. They are very expensive. My wife found this ApneaRX and I was surprised how much better sleep I was getting. I didn’t realise that my snoring was affecting my sleeping (and my wifes) Worked almost instantly and saved us so much money. Highly recommended.
