Oral Appliance for Sleep Apnea?
The appliance is a small plastic device, fitted to your dentition, comfortably worn during the time you are sleeping. It is like a sports mouth guard or retainer, but the function is different. The appliance is designed to help prevent the collapse of the tongue toward the back of the throat, lift the soft tissues of the palate and throat, to open the airway during sleep.These physiological changes act to increase airflow to the lungs gently. The C-PAP achieves this by forcing air into your airway, sometimes at high flow rates.
Why an Oral Appliance?
- The Appliance is comfortable and easy to maintain and travel with. C-PAP is burdensome, uncomfortable.
- The Appliance is EFFECTIVE, especially for Mild to Moderate Sleep Apnea.
- The appliance is non-invasive and reversible.
- The appliance is cost effective and covered by
Medical Insurance and Medicare.
