Oral Appliances for Obstructive Sleep Apnea

While you can use a CPAP machine or even undergo surgical procedures to help with obstructive sleep apnea, there is a less invasive way to help. Oral appliances provided by a dentist can keep your airway open while sleeping.

Many patients stop using a CPAP machine because they’re uncomfortable and cumbersome to use. Also, surgical procedures are frightening and costly and don’t always resolve all symptoms.

On the other hand, an oral appliance like a snore guard can relieve the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea. These devices are often called snore guards, which help position your jaw, so your airway remains open while sleeping.
