Oral Appliance for Sleep Apnea
Understanding Sleep Apnea
Sleep Apnea Mouthpieces
Sleep apnea is a common sleep disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. It is characterized by repetitive pauses in breathing during sleep, which can lead to decreased oxygen levels in the body, snoring, and restless sleep. Fortunately, there are several treatments available to help manage this condition.
A sleep apnea mouthpiece is a custom-fitted device worn during sleep that helps to keep the airway open. This type of appliance works by repositioning the jaw and tongue to prevent them from collapsing into the throat and obstructing the airway. Sleep apnea mouthpieces are easy to use, comfortable, and effective in reducing the symptoms of sleep apnea.
Sleep Apnea Oral Appliances
Sleep apnea oral appliances are similar to mouthpieces but are designed to fit inside the mouth and look similar to a sports mouthguard. These appliances work by repositioning the jaw and tongue and are effective in treating mild to moderate sleep apnea.
Sleep mouthguards are similar to sleep apnea oral appliances but are not custom-fitted. These are not recommended as they can make things even worse.
Sleep Apnea Nightguards
A sleep apnea nightguard is another type of oral appliance that is worn during sleep to help keep the airway open. It works by repositioning the jaw and tongue and is effective in treating mild to moderate sleep apnea.
Choosing the Right Treatment
Most of these sleep apnea appliances are effective in treating sleep apnea and can provide relief from the symptoms of the condition. However, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any treatment to ensure the right option is selected for your specific needs.
