Sleep Apnea Therapy: Get the Rest You Deserve
Dentists are now able to effectively treat patients who are suffering from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) using a simple treatment called oral appliance therapy. For this, all a patient has to do is wear a custom-made mouthguard to bed each night, and it will gently push the jaw forward and keep the tongue in a neutral position in order to keep the airway open. This is an excellent option for those who still need treatment for the condition, and it is also great for those who are sick of their CPAP or are CPAP intolerant.
If you are interested in using oral appliance therapy to get the deep, restful sleep you need every night, talk to your doctor and ask about oral appliance therapy.
