There are many options for devices that can assist with your snoring problems, depending on the severity of the condition. Usually, a sleep study is first recommended to determine the treatment modality that best suits your needs.
One of the most popular dental devices used for sleep apnea is the mandibular advancement device (MAD). This device looks similar to a sports mouth guard, and works by repositioning the lower jaw and tongue while you sleep. This helps keep the airways open, thereby preventing breathing problems and allowing for a more restful night’s sleep.
If you suffer from more extreme sleep apnea, a combination of CPAP therapy and a dental device can often be used. A Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) device can help you breathe more easily during sleep by increasing the air pressure in the throat to prevent the airway from collapsing. A custom-made dental sleep device can be worn along with a CPAP machine, so that you and your partner can sleep soundly and without interruption. For more information, contact us today!
