Cpap machine treatment vs oral appliance treatment in San Diego sleep apnea therapy

At 44 years of age, Kerry went to bed one night in October 2015 and didn’t wake up. She died from sleep apnea that night leaving a husband and 2 young kids behind. Kerry was diagnosed with sleep apnea years earlies and actually had 5 Cpap machines under her bed when she died that were supposed to be helping her stay alive. Unfortunately, to Kerry, none of the Cpap machines felt comfortable to wear at night, so she chose to now wear any of them, not realizing what consequences were to come.

Kerry did try an oral mandibular advancement device or an oral appliance, years earlier as well but she didn’t like the way her jaw felt in the mornings after she woke up and she was still very tired during the day.

There are thousands and thousands of men and women who are just like Kerry, trying to find the best way they can cope with this debilitating disease called sleep apnea or obstructed breathing. How can you know which treatment is better between a Cpap machine treatment or an oral mandibular advancement device treatment?

Let’s take a look.

A Cpap (Continuous positive airway pressure) is a mask and machine that you will wear every night in order to help you breathe and stay alive while you sleep. Yes, it is uncomfortable and can make a lot of noise, but it does work and can save lives.

Many men, women deal with terrible conditions everyday like sleep apnea, (OSA) snoring, that can lead to other health problems. These conditions are typically treated with Cpaps, snore guards and oral appliance. Lett’s look at some pro’s and cons of the Cpap machine and the mandibular advancement device.

Cpap machine:


  • It helps the person the breath at night by forcing necessary oxygen into the lungs.
  • The Cpap machine can save lives.
  • Better quality of sleep.
  • Less snoring.


  • The machine is bulky and noisy
  • Difficult to take on trips
  • Uncomfortable to wear
  • Skin irritation

  • Only treats the symptoms and not the underlying cause of the problem

A mandibular advancement device (MAD) is an oral appliance that patients wear at night, it pulls the lower jaw (Mandible) forward as the person sleeps in order to open up the airway so the person can sleep.

The MAD device is typically worn by people when they are Cpap intolerant as an alternative, let’s take a look at the pro’s and cons of the mandibular advancement devices now.

MAD device:


  • The person does not have to use a Cpap machine
  • Easy to travel with
  • Less expensive than a Cpap machine
  • Less snoring


  • May cause jaw join pain (TMJ)
  • May cause a person’s bite to change
  • Uncomfortable to wear
  • Only treats the symptoms and not the underlying cause of the problem

At one time or another, you may have tried one of these treatments that the “experts” have said will work and make things better. The problem may be that those treatments didn’t work, or they were expensive or took a lot of time to see less than stellar results. Does this sound familiar?

Are you looking for a better all-natural treatment that can fix the problems once and for all and live healthier lives?  Are you or your loved ones ready to get rid of your cpap, oral appliance and snore guards? Are you ready to take your life back?

I was leery of new treatment that my doctor had not heard about and I rush to think that it may not work, or it may be too expensive to try and see. I ask myself; will the treatment harm me or my son? Will I have to spend a lot of time and money and then start again from scratch if it doesn’t work?

These emotions are real, and you may relate to them. I can remember, very vividly, my son struggling and not knowing what to do or who to turn to for help for him. His pediatric doctor told us when he was 3 that he would simply “grow out of it” but he didn’t, he got worse.
