I was diagnosed with sleep apnea and was given a cpap machine. Outside of sounding like Darth Vader, I cannot sleep with this machine on my face. Please tell me there is an alternative????!

Lucky for you there is. Sleep apnea is treatable and there are several types of treatments available. Dr. Bader prefers to start with the most conservative treatment available.
Most people prefer a mandibular advancement appliance to a CPAP machine. Talk to your dentist and see if that gives you the help you need. If not, there are other treatments available as well. But, it’s always best to start with the most simple and least invasive.
