Why Dental Sleep Appliances Really Work

Posted in Sleep Apnea

Is it true that dental sleep apnea appliances actually work? Yes. It’s not just a gimmick; it’s science!

Oral sleep appliances help to naturally open your airway by preventing the collapse of soft tissues in the back of your mouth. Normal anatomy like your tongue, soft palate and your esophagus can collapse together and seal off the airway causing apnea or simply chronic snoring. Using methods that mirror rescue breathing used by first responders, an oral sleep apnea appliance guides the lower jaw forward to prevent these tissues from sealing against one another. This function produces tremendous results!

See Results the Very First Night 

Wearing these oral devices can provide you with immediate benefits. Most people see a difference during their very first night. Depending on your type of sleep apnea, an oral sleep appliance can completely eliminate all symptoms of your condition. Not only that, but there aren’t any loud noises like other types of sleep therapy equipment. When you wear an oral sleep apnea appliance, you can sleep in any position that is comfortable – on your side or on your stomach – because there are no bulky pieces of equipment.  Just a smooth, form-fitting guard that stays put all night long.

If you’ve seen a sleep disorder doctor and are looking for options to treat your sleep apnea or snoring, then just ask your dentist! Many people find that they are able to eliminate the need for CPAP machines by simply wearing these small, non-invasive oral appliances at night. Talk to your dental provider to find out if they are a sleep-dentistry dentist!
