Traveling With Sleep Apnea Made Easy! [BLOG]

Snoring / Sleep Apnea Treatment 3 in San Pedro, CA by Dr. Victoria Shook of Shook Dental Care

If you’re like many people, some of your fondest memories probably involve times spent with your family.

That would include family vacations.

You might laugh when you recall spending hours in the station wagon bickering with siblings while driving cross country or the first time you flew on an airplane for a family trip.

Since summer is when many kids are out of school for a longer stretch, families usually pack everyone up and head out for some leisure, quality time together.

This is tons of fun, but not necessarily for those who have sleep apnea.

Our team at Shook Dental Care can help ease some of the stress of your summer travel plans with an alternative to a CPAP machine.

You can visit our San Pedro, CA dental office to get a custom oral appliance that will keep your upper and lower jaw positioned for easy breathing and restful sleep while you’re traveling abroad!

Traveling With A CPAP Is A Hassle

Don’t misunderstand us when we talk about the hassle of a CPAP machine!

It’s highly effective and it helps millions of people get the rest they need.

We’re talking more about it being a rather inconvenient option if you spend a lot of time on the road for business or when you’re traveling with your family on vacations.

It takes up space in the car, which if you have children, will be limited to begin with.

It can make it tough to catch connecting flights if you’re having to carry it around a busy airport.

And it can be disruptive to anyone who might be sharing a room with you at night because of the noise it makes.

So while it definitely works, you may find it more convenient to try a different kind of sleep apnea treatment during times when you have overnight trips away from home.

Travel Light With A Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance

As fun and exciting as traveling can be, it’s also stressful. You have a lot of things to keep in order, and especially when you fly, you have a schedule to stick to.

To avoid the hassle of a CPAP machine or the painful choice to forego restful sleep while on vacation, consider sleep apnea treatment that fits in the palm of your hand!

With a custom-made oral appliance from Dr. Shook, your airways will stay open all through the night. You wear it like any other mouthguard, and it will fit you comfortably so you can breathe easily and stay well-rested while away from home!

An oral appliance from our San Pedro, CA dental office means you don’t have to worry about sharing a hotel room with others who might have trouble sleeping with a noisy CPAP machine nearby. You don’t have to worry about sleeping near an outlet.

And the best part, you don’t have to hop from one airport to the next carrying your CPAP machine with you.

Dr. Shook offers this alternative so you can enjoy travel comfortably, conveniently, and energetically!
