Having obstructive sleep apnea can be a significant burden when you are traveling. If you have a CPAP machine that you rely on to get better sleep at night, you may find it an ordeal to take your machine through airport security, find a working outlet for it, and keep it clean. If you leave your machine behind, however, you’ll have to suffer from the effects of your sleep apnea throughout your trip, which can leave you feeling fatigued and listless. Obtaining an oral sleep appliance from your dentist solves these issues. An oral appliance is quiet and unobtrusive, and it’s easy to slip into your carry-on baggage. You won’t need to find an outlet for the appliance during your travels, and you’ll be able to clean it easily. Best of all, you’ll be able to get better rest while you’re traveling, allowing you to fully enjoy your trip.
