An alternative to CPAP therapy

An oral appliance is more comfortable than a CPAP machine, and many people are eligible for oral appliance therapy. Dr. Nadler can help determine if it is a suitable treatment for your sleep apnea during a consultation.
Dr. Nadler’s knowledgeable treatment of sleep apnea
Dr. Nadler has worked very closely with experts regarding Sleep Apnea treatment, and was recently one of the keynote speakers at the Somerset Medical Center for treating Sleep Apnea.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep Apnea is a condition characterized by repeated pauses in breath when sleeping, called “apneas.” These pauses occur when the soft tissues at the back of your throat relax and block the airways. Each pause can last for 10 seconds or more, and can occur up to thirty or more times per hour.
Not only does sleep apnea interfere with being well rested, but it can also lead to other more serious health conditions such as high blood pressure, stroke and more.
