Not sure where to start?
CPAP therapy can be intrusive, uncomfortable and impractical.
Our oral devices are none of these.
What treatment alternatives are there to CPAP?
Many people begin by seeing their family doctor and undergoing a sleep study. Generally, a CPAP device will be prescribed. The CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) therapy device is considered the gold-standard of OSA therapy and some people do well with them, finding instant relief and comfort.
Others find sleeping with a mask forcing air into their throats very difficult. Still, others have mild enough sleep apnea or snoring that they don’t need a CPAP but could benefit from deeper sleep and better oxygen intake.
This is where ProSomnus Devices come in.
ProSomnus Devices are as effective for some patients as a CPAP!
For patients who find their CPAP miserable to wear, inconvenient when traveling, or useless when there is no power, such as when camping, an oral sleep appliance can be a lifesaver.

Snoring can often be a sign of a more complex condition called Sleep Apnea. It is important to identify early if you have Sleep Apnea as there are some long term risks associated with the condition going untreated. The most common risks are cardiovascular disease (such as heart attack and stroke), diabetes, depression and anxiety.
Partner sleep deprivation
Snoring among other things can cause significant sleep disturbances to your bed partner. In short even if your bed partner is asleep, loud snoring can affect the level of sleep they are experiencing. Much like second hand smoking, second hand snoring can have hazardous consequences on a person’s health.

Is lack of sleep risky?
When you are sleep and oxygen deprived – the way sleep apnea sufferers are – you are not only tired, you are a danger to yourself and others
- Driving sleep deprived is as dangerous as driving drunk – over 250,000 motorists fall asleep at the wheel, causing an annual average of 8,000 deaths and 60,000 debilitating injuries
- Sleep apnea has been shown to increase the risk of cognitive impairment or dementia
- Sleep apnea triggers the fight or flight response with each episode putting severe stress on your body and leading to higher cortisol levels
- This constant fight or flight response can also lead to heart attacks
- Sudden death during sleep is more likely in sleep apnea patients
- Because oxygen levels fall during sleep apnea episode, the blood vessels in your brain dilate, increasing your chance of clotting and stroke
- A lack of oxygen has been linked with an increased risk for the development of cancerous tumors
- The noise of sleep apnea causes bed partners to suffer from a lack of sleep leading to crankiness, a lack of alertness, and even depression
Frequent snorers and people that often wake up or feel tired during the day may have sleep apnea. A sleep study may help identify the exact issue and get you on the path for treatment.
Sleep apnea is a condition where the upper airways become obstructed during sleep cause low oxygen levels in the blood and interrupted sleep. Often patients with sleep apnea are heavy snorers.
Yes. Luckily you have many options to treat this condition.
Sleep apnea can be effectively treated with Oral Appliances and CPAP/APAP. Oral appliances help open the airway by pushing the lower part of the jaw forward. CPAP and APAP push oxygen down the airways to keep them open during sleep.
Once you are set up with your overnight sleep study we will have the results available for you.
Once your report is finalised firstly we will be able to identify whether you have sleep apnea or not. If you do not have sleep apnea you will be referred for an online consultation or sent a form to book in with a sleep specialist. If you are diagnosed with sleep apnea we will refer you to book with one of our providers for sleep treatment.
