Dental sleep medicine is a specialized area that focuses on treating sleep-disordered breathing, including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), through the use of oral appliance therapy. A custom-fit oral appliance can improve your sleep, restore your energy and health by keeping your airway open during the night. Read on to learn more about this life-changing treatment and how our team of sleep physicians can help.
An oral appliance is worn in the mouth 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.
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.
If you are looking for an alternative to CPAP, oral appliance treatment may be the perfect solution for you. To learn more about dental sleep medicine from our sleep specialists contact our Neptune, NJ team at (732) 455-3030 today!
