Oral Appliance Therapy
 

Oral appliances have been in use for over 20 years to effectively treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. Many scientific studies have been published that demonstrate the effectiveness of these appliances when utilized by trained and experienced sleep-disorders dentists.

Oral appliances are placed in the mouth much like an orthodontic retainer or an athletic mouth guard. They are utilized during sleep to prevent the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues in the back of the throat so that the airway stays open during sleep. The appliances promote adequate air intake thereby helping to provide normal sleep for those who suffer from snoring and/or obstructive sleep apnea. Oral appliances can be used alone or in combination with CPAP or after surgery. Determination of proper therapy can only be made by joint consultation between your sleep-disorders dentist and your sleep physician.
