ADVANTAGES OF ORAL APPLIANCE THERAPY
Do you snore?
A potentially deadly disease, sleep apnea (snoring) can be controlled through the application of a well fitting and maintained oral appliance. Not only do mouth guard like devices control the causes of Sleep Apnea but they also assure a restful night of sleep for both you and your sleep partner.
Oral appliances, fit by our qualified dentists, are an alternative treatment for many patients who can’t use or don’t want to use PAP therapy. They come in many different designs, and are custom made just for you. The main purpose of the dental device is to keep the airway open during sleep, thereby preventing it from collapsing and blocking the normal flow of air during breathing.
Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). A custom-fit oral sleep appliance can improve your sleep, restore your alertness and revitalize your health. Worn only during sleep, an oral appliance fits like a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer. It supports the jaw in a forward position to help maintain an open upper airway. Research shows that oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
Treating snoring or obstructive sleep apnea with oral appliance therapy can help you feel like a new person. You will find that your symptoms, and your quality of life, can improve dramatically when you remain committed to your treatment and use it nightly. It is likely that you will sleep better, have more energy and feel sharper throughout the day. You may find that your bed partner begins to sleep better, too!
