An oral sleep apnea appliance, such as a mandibular advancement device, can offer a range of benefits for individuals suffering from obstructive sleep apnea. These custom-fitted devices are comfortable to wear and easy to use, providing a non-invasive and portable alternative to traditional Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines. By gently repositioning the jaw and tongue, these appliances help keep the airway open during sleep, reducing snoring and the frequency of breathing interruptions. Not only do they improve the quality of sleep, but they also contribute to overall well-being by decreasing daytime fatigue and enhancing alertness. Oral sleep apnea appliances can offer a convenient and effective solution for those seeking a more restful night’s sleep and a healthier, more vibrant life.
During routine examinations, your Care Dental team will ask you questions about oral sleep apnea and help you identify if you are at risk. If so, we can assist you in completing a study of your sleep patterns and work with your medical doctor to assess your risk levels and candidacy.
