How Oral Appliance Therapy Works

An oral appliance for sleep apnea can look much like an athletic mouthguard, but instead of protecting your teeth from an impact, it opens up your airway for better breathing and better quality of sleep. The custom-made appliance connects to both the upper and lower teeth and enables those with sleep apnea and their partners to achieve deep, restful sleep. There are two kinds of oral appliances that can help alleviate your sleep apnea symptoms:

  • Mandibular repositioning—this appliance holds your lower jaw in a more forward position and prevents your facial tissues from relaxing to the point where they hinder your ability to breathe.
  • Tongue retaining—if your tongue is the cause of your sleep apnea, this option uses suction to keep your tongue from blocking your airway.
