What is an Oral Appliance for Sleep Apnea?
The appliance is a small plastic device, fitted to your dentition, comfortably worn during the time you are sleeping. It is like a sports mouth guard or retainer, but the function is different.
The appliance is designed to help prevent the collapse of the tongue toward the back of the throat, lift the soft tissues of the palate and throat, to open the airway during sleep.
These physiological changes act to increase airflow to the lungs gently. The C-PAP achieves this by forcing air into your airway, sometimes at high flow rates.
Why an Oral Appliance?
The Appliance is comfortable and easy to maintain and travel with. C-PAP is burdensome, uncomfortable.
The Appliance is EFFECTIVE, especially for Mild to Moderate Sleep Apnea.
The appliance is non-invasive and reversible.
The appliance is cost effective and covered by Medical Insurance and Medicare.

Chance of Stroke is Reduced
Sleep Apnea can be the cause of a first time or recurrent stroke, because it is linked to low oxygen levels and high blood pressure.
Better continuous sleep eliminates sleep debt caused by Sleep Apnea, allowing the brain to cope with anxiety and stress.
Sleep deprivation leads to large increases in weight, and makes it hard to lose the weight you gained.
Daytime Fatigue is Reduced
Increased sleep, with more deep sleep, allows you to awakened refreshed, and feel awake during the day.
Cardiac Events and High Blood Pressure are Effectively Reduced
Falling oxygen levels during Sleep Apnea stresses the heart, increasing the heart rate, and the blood pressure. This also affects the blood vessels negatively.
