Patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea can often be treated through the use of an oral appliance. This appliance opens airways and helps you breath better. This customized appliance helps reduce snoring and increase oxygen in the airways by fitting comfortably between your teeth and increasing the amount of space for your tongue. Visiting a prosthodontist can sometimes be an alternative to the loud CPAP machines that many patients find uncomfortable to use. Reducing the tension in the jaw can help patients with other serious symptoms as well, such as TMJ, hypertension and sever hypoxemia.
