Oral sleep appliances are devices that are designed to be worn in the mouth while sleeping in order to treat sleep-related breathing disorders, such as snoring and sleep apnea. These appliances work by repositioning the lower jaw slightly forward, which opens up the airway and helps to prevent the tongue and soft tissues in the throat from collapsing and blocking the airway during sleep. This helps to improve breathing and reduce snoring and apnea episodes.
You can improve your overall health and reduce the risk of serious complications with oral sleep appliances. Contact us at one of our offices or fill out the contact form and request a consultation appointment.
Snoring and obstructive sleep apnea are both common breathing disorders that can significantly impact your quality of life. If you experience regular snoring, it’s recommended that you undergo a simple test to assess the severity of the issue. This test can be conducted either at a sleep center or in the comfort of your own home.
Oral sleep appliances are an effective treatment option for patients who suffer from mild to moderate sleep apnea. They are a non-invasive and comfortable alternative to a CPAP, and can reduce or eliminate sleep apnea symptoms.

Oral sleep appliances work by repositioning the lower jaw and tongue to prevent the collapse of soft tissues at the back of the throat, which can cause snoring or obstructive sleep apnea.

By doing so, it improves the quality of sleep and helps to alleviate sleep-related breathing disorders.
