Would you like a better night's sleep?
Snoring and Obstructive sleep apnea can be treated safely and effectively with a snore appliance.
Obstructive sleep apnea affects more than 40 million Americans. Untreated it can lead to heart disease, strokes and excessive daytime sleepiness.
At least 80 million Americans snore. Snoring is a sign of restricted airflow and impeded breathing during sleep which can result in day time sleepiness.
The American Academy of Sleep Medicine now recommends oral appliances as a front line of treatment for snoring or sleep apnea. THe appliance fits inside the mouth, they are portable, they do not use electricity or make noise that would bother a partner trying to sleep and they allow the wearer to change sleep positions. It is also approved by the FDA.
The snore appliance works by opening the bite and gently advancing the mandible (lower jaw) with elastic straps to increase airway space. This custom made oral appliance requires a set of study models and fabrication of the appliance at a lab. It's that simple!
