Oral Appliance Therapy
An oral appliance can be used to treat snoring and mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnea by moving the lower jaw forward slightly. This forward movement tightens the soft tissue and muscles of the upper airway, which prevents obstructing the airway while you sleep. The tightening created by the device also prevents the tissues of the upper airway from vibrating as air passes over them (the most common cause of loud snoring). Our sleep center’s board certified dentist is specially trained in oral appliance therapy and is highly effective at fitting these therapy devices.
