Benefits of CPAP and Its Maintenance

Machine

CPAP, or continuous positive airway pressure, machines are a wise investment in your overall health and well-being. You'll notice a difference in your day if you adhere to CPAP therapy. These are just a few of the ways that a CPAP can help you:

  • Improved moods
  • Sharper focus
  • Health Risk Prevention

Improved Moods

You are more likely to feel happier and more energized during the day if you get a good night's sleep. You require 7 to 9 hours of sleep per night as an adult, and failure to accomplish this goal can lead to anger and dissatisfaction.

Sharper Focus

Therapy can improve day-to-day concentration and delay the onset of cognitive impairment such as dementia. To function correctly, your body requires enough oxygen to reach the brain. CPAP therapy can help with this, allowing your brain to function at its peak throughout the day.

Health Risk Prevention

The use of CPAP therapy helps reduce the risk of various disorders. It can help decrease blood pressure, heart disease, and stroke risk.

CPAP Maintenance and Care

Maintaining your CPAP machine is equally as vital as adhering to the guidelines. You're not doing yourself any favors by putting up with a dirty or defective piece of equipment. Cleaning your mask, tubing, and water chambers daily are recommended. Use a soapy solution followed by a thorough rinsing and drying for best results.

You will also want to double-check that all of your accessories are up to date and functional. A leaky seal on a mask, for example, can make sleeping quite uncomfortable. One should replace each component in the following order:

  • Masks: 3 Months
  • Headgear and Chin Strap: 6 Months
  • Tubing: 3 Months
  • Water Chamber: 6 Months
  • CPAP Machine: 3 to 7 Years

Epigenetic Orthodontics

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.

Airway Improvement

WOW! A 54% decrease in forward head posture; 164% increase in the antero-posterior size of the airway; 176% increase in the lateral size of the airway all from epigenetically centered jaw development orthopedics. This is the future of orthodontics!​
