The Oral Appliance for Sleep Apnea

The Oral Appliance for Sleep Apnea

Obstructive sleep apnea impacts your ability to sleep soundly and get the rest that your body needs. Over time, the poor quality of sleep that you experience can lead to a near-constant state of sleep deprivation.

The Issues

Do you know how detrimental sleep deprivation can be to your health and overall well-being? Common issues and problems abound:

  • Fatigue and exhaustion throughout the day
  • Problems concentrating
  • Irritability
  • Excess weight
  • Increased risk of cancer, heart problems, stroke and brain hemorrhage

As a sleep apnea sufferer, you’re likely familiar with the large, bulky CPAP/BPAP devices that are meant to be used to alleviate your problem. These machines are inconvenient, and the masks are often uncomfortable. Plus, there’s a lot of upkeep, daily cleaning, supplies and more. You may have given up. And who can blame you?

There’s Another Way

If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea, there is a much simpler solution. Oral appliances and dental devices for sleep apnea help treat obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. These devices are called Mandibular Advancement Devices (MAD) and Jaw Advancing Devices (JAD) due to the way they work.

These appliances move your jaw forward to ensure that you have an unobstructed airway while you are sleeping. This eliminates or minimizes the air resistance that contributes to sleep apnea. These portable devices are compact and easy to use anywhere you sleep. They are unobtrusive, and patients are far more likely to continue use of a MAD/JAD over compliance with continued use of CPAP/BPAP machines.
