CPAP and Oral Appliance Combination Therapy

Bfit stands for Better Facial Integrity Treatment.  Utilizing the science of sleep medicine, Bfit Sleep Appliances are designed to replace muscle activity as it is needed. During sleep, muscles in the jaw relax which can cause airway obstruction and decreased facial integrity.
CPAP users who may experience mask misalignment and airflow leakage, during sleep due to lost muscle activity, find that the combination therapy use of a Bfit Oral Appliance with a CPAP mask improves overall compliance with CPAP Therapy.

Untreated Sleep Apnea Health Concerns

It is one thing to get tested for sleep apnea, but another to actually follow through with proper treatment.  Patients who struggle to tolerate wearing a CPAP mask are less likely to comply with the prescribed treatment regimen.  A Bfit Oral Sleep Appliance can be a great alternative to CPAP treatment. Untreated sleep apnea can increase the risk of developing serious health issues such as hypertension, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack, stroke and other conditions. Many of these medical conditions can be prevented or lessened by simply achieving proper sleep treatment.
