Benefits of Oral Devices for Sleep Apnea Treatment

When used consistently, patients experience many advantages of using a sleep apnea dental appliance. Some patients even experience improvements in their quality of sleep after the first use.

Some of the other common benefits of oral devices are:

  • Sleep apnea dental appliances conserve energy and are silent, much smaller, and more affordable compared to CPAP machines.
  • Overall, sleep apnea dental appliances are more convenient than alternatives.
  • They’re incredibly discrete when in use.

How Do Sleep Apnea Mouthpieces Work?

When you receive a sleep apnea dental appliance from our dentist near you, we’ll answer any questions you may have. Patients often wonder how sleep apnea mouthpieces work.

Once placed on your teeth, the mouthpiece will move your jaw forward. This helps increase the size of the upper airway, reducing the air resistance that happens during sleep apnea and snoring. The amount your jaw is moved forward is often adjustable for maximum comfort.

Great North Dental also has tongue retaining devices. These use a splint that keeps your tongue in place, allowing your airway to remain open as you sleep. If you do struggle with sleep apnea, we want to be sure that you’re also working with your doctor to know what the safest options for treatment are.

Getting an Oral Device for Sleep Apnea

After talking with your doctor, book an appointment with our friendly dentist at Great North Dental. We’ll need to go over your medical history and discuss the process with you at a consultation.

We’ll take an impression of your teeth bite and create a custom mouthpiece for you that fits comfortably. Please reach out online, over the phone, or in person.
