How Oral Appliance Therapy Works?
The appliance, which must be worn each night to produce the desire effect, helps prevent the airway from collapsing by creating more airway space.
Oral appliances offer the patients a clinically proven therapy to treat snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea. Oral appliances are also a treatment option for patients who can not tolerate or do not accept CPAP therapy. This non-invasive treatment is reversible since no surgical procedures are involved.
Patients find it convenient and easy as no power supply is necessary. Oral appliance fit is excellent and comfortable, and it is approximately the size of a mouth guard. Studies show 92% of patients wearing oral appliances reported snoring to be either eliminated or greatly improved.
