Oral Appliances for Snoring and Mild to Moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA)
For the treatment of snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a dental prescribed appliance may be the most affordable non-invasive, comfortable and effective solution. The appliance, custom-fabricated and designed to wear at night during sleep, moves the lower jaw forward. This opens and maintains an unobstructed airway in the throat. These appliances worn in the mouth are similar to sports mouthguards or orthodontic retainers. The appliance has a higher compliance rate, as patient that wear CPAP (approximately 50%) fail to use it after a short period of time. Plus, a sleep apnea appliance is much more natural and easy to use.
