Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). A custom-fit oral sleep appliance can improve sleep, restore alertness, and revitalize a patient's health. Typically an oral appliance is used to treat patients with mild to moderate OSA but has also been used for patients with severe cases who cannot tolerate the traditional methods such as positive airway pressure therapy provided by a CPAP machine.
Worn only during sleep, an oral appliance fits like a sports mouthguard 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 non-invasive treatment that fits easily into a patient's lifestyle.
