You Want a Travel-Friendly Second Treatment
Even if you adapt well to CPAP at home, you might prefer to avoid traveling with it.
To travel with CPAP, pack all your gear and find a place to set it up in a hotel room or guest bedroom. You might have difficulty finding a convenient outlet to plug it in. Or perhaps there’s not enough room on the bedside table for your machine. Business travelers might find that it’s cumbersome for their frequent trips. A CPAP machine requires a separate bag that can cause complications at security or when boarding the plane.
CPAP can also be difficult if you love to head up to Smithville or down to Lake Jacomo for extended camping and fishing trips. Battery-operated CPAP machines could be better. If you’re in an RV, you might have the power, but finding room for your CPAP can be challenging.
In these situations, it can be great to have a sleep apnea treatment that doesn’t require outlets, batteries, or bedside tables–one that fits in your pocket. That’s oral appliance therapy. It requires no power and no equipment. It will fit in your pocket and is easy to get through security. You never have to worry if space will be in the overhead compartment or under the seat in front of you.
A sleep dentist can help you get an oral sleep appliance that will help you treat sleep apnea no matter where you travel.
