Oral Appliance Therapy
Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). A custom-fit oral appliance can improve your sleep, restore your alertness and revitalize your health.
Worn only during sleep, an oral appliance fits like a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer. It supports the jaw in a forward position to help maintain an open upper airway. Research shows that oral appliance therapy can be an effective treatment option for snoring and OSA.
If your physician and dentist decide that oral appliance therapy is the best treatment option for you, the physician can write a prescription for the dentist to make you a custom oral appliance.
More than 100 oral appliances have received FDA clearance. Your dentist will recommend the oral appliance that is best for you. Oral appliance therapy is covered by many medical insurance plans.
Oral appliance therapy is an effective non-invasive treatment that fits easily into your lifestyle. Patients like oral appliance therapy because it is:
