A custom-fit oral appliance is an effective treatment option for sleep breathing disorders such as obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. The appliance can also help address the disorders’ associated challenges such as persistent fatigue and teeth grinding, among others.
Fitting much like a sports mouthguard, oral devices provide an alternative to CPAP and surgery. They work by repositioning the jaw to open the central airway and allow an unobstructed flow of oxygen. We offer a wide range of appliance options, which are then custom fit to the wearer to maximize the efficacy of the device and the relief that patients experience.
Oral appliances support the jaw in such a way that prevents the throat muscles and tissues, and the tongue from falling back into the airway and causing obstruction of airflow during sleep.
