Why Choose an Oral Appliance?
Oral appliances are a discreet, quiet, and comfortable way to keep your airway open and treat sleep apnea. Resembling a dental retainer, an oral appliance can easily be used without causing a disturbance to those around you. The tactful nature of an oral appliance makes it more convenient than CPAP therapy, which is a major reason why many patients prefer oral appliances over other treatments.
Oral appliances are extremely quiet and will not disturb the patient or their bed partner while they sleep. Since the appliance simply repositions the tongue or jaw, these comfortable devices contribute to a quality sleep.
