Oral Appliance Therapy
Oral Appliance Therapy is an alternative treatment option to sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea happens when there is a blockage of the airway during sleep. The lack of oxygen while sleeping causes many health problems including high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and behavioral changes among others. Many people with sleep apnea can experience tiredness, snoring, and restlessness.
Oral Appliance Therapy will position the jaw in a more forward position to open the airway during sleep. This is a convenient, comfortable option to prevent sleep apnea. The device can also be used alone or in combination with a CPAP.
