Oral appliance therapy is by far the most common and effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. There are more than 80 different sleep apnea oral devices on the market today. Similar in appearance to a double retainer, they are designed to either shift the lower jaw forward or retain the tongue to keep it from falling back into the throat. Oral appliances are typically worn at night and are custom fitted to each patient.
Some severe forms of apnea require more invasive treatments, procedures and surgeries. Set up a consultation to determine how we can help you.
