Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a condition that causes intermittent breathing pauses during sleep. This condition is often treated with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines, but not everyone can get used to them easily. An alternative treatment is oral appliance therapy which the dentist can provide.
These devices look like retainers and help keep the airways open during sleep.
The device is custom made to ensure comfort.
It’s a discreet and noise-free solution for people with mild to moderate OSA.
Your dentist has all the information on oral appliance devices for sleep apnea, so don’t hesitate to discuss this option next time you get your teeth checked.
