What is a sleep apnea device?
A sleep apnea device is a dental appliance used to treat mild to moderate sleep apnea.
Why would I want a sleep apnea device?
Many patient with mild to moderate sleep apnea can reduce their symptoms with a dental device instead of using a CPAP machine. A sleep apnea dental device may be more comfortable for you and a better fit for your lifestyle.
How does it work?
A sleep apnea dental device works by gently holding your lower jaw slightly more forward than normal. This moves the soft tissue of your tongue and throat slightly forward and out of your airway to allow for more natural breathing.
Please understand that a sleep apnea device can only be made after a sleep study and a proper sleep apnea diagnosis.
