Did you know that dentists can play a key role in the treatment of Sleep Apnea?
Oral Appliance Therapy is most effective in the treatment of mild to moderate sleep apnea. This is an ideal treatment for patients who are CPAP intolerant.
Oral Appliances are placed in the mouth and are worn much like an orthodontic appliance or sports mouth protector. They are worn during sleep to prevent the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues in the back of the throat so the airway stays open during sleep. The appliances promote adequate air intake and help to provide normal sleep in people who have obstructive sleep apnea and/or snore.
