The only effective oral appliances are ones that are custom made for the patient and is FDA approved. The â€œboil and biteâ€ appliances are not only uncomfortable and bulky they are proven to not work therapeutically. So if you have tried these before and they did not work for you that does not mean you are not a candidate for an oral appliance!
The gold standard for treatment of sleep apnea is presently with the C-PAP machine. However, only a minority of C-PAP owners are still compliant after one year. If you are one of the non-compliant, we can fabricate an oral appliance that will help open your airway and reduce the severity of your sleep apnea.
These appliances reduce sleep apnea associated health risks without the need for surgery, medications, or other therapies. A custom oral appliance worn while sleeping, holds the lower jaw forward and open, preventing the tongue and throat tissues from collapsing the critical airway. There is a high success rate for people treated with these appliances.
Even if you love your C-PAP and are compliant please consider an oral appliance for use when hunting, camping and/or traveling. Avoid that pesky TSA!
