How do oral appliances work?
An oral appliance is a device worn in the mouth only while you sleep. Similar to a sports mouth guard or orthodontic retainer, the custom-fit oral appliance is easy to take in and out and works as an effective treatment for preventing the airway from collapsing by supporting the jaw in a forward position.
What are the benefits of using oral appliances for dental sleep medicine?
Oral appliance therapy is an effective, non-invasive treatment that works effortlessly with any lifestyle. The appliances are not only comfortable and easy to wear, but also are portable and convenient for travel. With the use of the device, you will find your symptoms and quality of life can improve dramatically. With the proper treatment and daily use, you will notice you have more energy and feel more alert throughout the day as a result of your uninterrupted sleep. If you’re looking for a simple and effective way to treat your snoring and sleep apnea, the use of an oral appliance is the best solution.
