Trained in dental sleep medicine and sedation, Dr. Rachana Vora offers an alternative to CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) for patients with sleep apnea.

According to the latest research, nearly 50% of Americans between 40-60 years of age experience sleep disorders. Contrary to social norms that tend to make light of snoring, it can be a sign of a serious, potentially life-threatening medical condition called "sleep apnea". Not only does sleep apnea pose a significant health risk, it remains largely undiagnosed and can lead to sleepiness during the day, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure, headaches and muscle pain, diabetes, and even stroke.
Snoring occurs when the soft tissues lining the nasal airway close in on each other, causing a partial obstruction or blockage followed by vibrations. While CPAP is the most effective treatment for severe sleep apnea, oral appliance therapy is a simpler and easier FDA-approved solution for patients who cannot tolerate it. The team of dentists at Natick Family Dental are highly trained in fitting and maintaining a wide variety of oral devices that reposition the mandible, retain the tongue below the airway, and provide positive airway space to limit apnea episodes and loss of sleep.
