About Oral Appliance Therapy
With oral appliance therapy, all a patient has to do is wear a special mouthpiece to bed every night. It will be designed to comfortably fit over the teeth and slightly reposition the jaw forward. This prevents the airway from closing, stopping snoring or sleep apnea from occurring. This results in better sleep, better mornings, and a happier partner as well!
