What is Oral Appliance Therapy? How Does It Work?
Being fitted for the Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance is an easy and streamlined process which can be performed
at the time you receive the results of your take-home sleep test. No endless stream of office visits necessary!
The Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance is a small convenient device shaped like a mouth guard which keeps your jaw and tongue from falling back. Easy to pack and travel with; the device requires no power source and is comfortable to wear. It helps to maintain an open airway and decreases both snoring and obstructive events (stopped breathing).
