Sleep apnea is a condition where the person is not able to breathe correctly while sleeping. The majority of these patients don’t know they have sleep apnea. It can contribute to other significant conditions such as snoring, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, and daytime sleepiness among others.
An oral appliance for sleep apnea is a form of treatment for sleep related breathing disorders like snoring. This appliance is custom made and is effective when used correctly for mild sleep apnea conditions. The device stabilizes the tongue and lower jaw, repositioning them to make space for air to enter, allowing for better sleep.
