ORTHO-STOP Used with CPAP for Sleep Apnea
Ortho-Stop can increase CPAP compliance in conjunction with CPAP use. Having worked with over 1000 cases dealing with clenching and grinding, I can assure you positive results with Ortho-Stop.
Ortho-Stop is small, custom made and very comfortable. It is not a bulky night guard. Ortho-Stop significantly reduces electrical firing to the CNS and brain because it stops clenching and grinding, which lasts 2-6 hours nightly.
Ortho-stop usage will:
Dramatically increase deep/REM sleep cycles
Reduce cortisol secretion at night
Increase physiological re energization
With clenching and grinding, one will experience a very agitated sleep. With deep/REM sleep cycles, the patient will be less affected by the “discomfort” of the CPAP. With increased deep/REM sleep, the patient should tolerate their CPAP better. CPAP compliance will increase. The primary problem is the effects of a lack of deep/REM sleep, not the CPAP. With Ortho-Stop enhancing deep/REM sleep, the patient should tolerate their CPAP better.
