Now there is an effective way to control snoring and obstructive sleep apnea that is an alternative to cumbersome CPAP devices. A small device, similar to an orthodontic appliance, can be an alternative to CPAP machines and, in some cases, be the first choice for treatment of mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea.

Snoring CoupleOral Appliances are placed in the mouth and are worn much like an orthodontic appliance or sports mouth protector. They are worn during sleep to prevent the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues in the back of the throat so that the airway stays open during sleep. The appliances promote adequate air intake and help to provide normal sleep in people who snore and have a medical condition known as sleep apnea. Oral appliances can be used alone or in conjunction with other means of therapy such as continuous positive air pressure (CPAP). Determination of proper therapy can only be made by joint consultation of your dentist and sleep physician.
