If your sleep apnea events—partial or complete losses of breath during any part of your sleep routine—number 5 to 30 per hour, your doctor may give you the option of using an oral appliance to expand your airway and ease your breathing.
Oral Appliances may also be used in patients with severe OSA, experiencing more than 30 events per hour, when a CPAP is not tolerated by the patient. It is a custom-fitted mouth guard that keeps your airway open by extending your jaw slightly forward to make room for your airway in between the soft tissue in your throat.

If you find yourself tired of having trouble sleeping due to discomfort in a CPAP, dry airways from constant forced air, clunky packaging for travel, or loud whirring noises from your partner’s CPAP—this is for you.
These oral appliances are made by licensed sleep medicine dentists and are now available as a viable option for treating mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Sleep isn’t just a gift, it’s a necessity. Find better rest today and schedule an appointment with North Shore Family Dental to evaluate your needs and find an affordable solution to your struggles with sleep.
