Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a situation in which the entire upper airway is blocked, causing air flow to stop. The most common type of treatment is a C-Pap. 40% of adults over age 40 snore. Statistics show 18% of men, and 8% of women between ages 30-70 suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Although highly effective, patients are frequently non-compliant with the C-Pap. Other treatments include: oral appliances, surgery and weight loss. Our office offers an oral appliance that is worn only during sleep. It fits like a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer. It supports the jaw in a forward position to help maintain an open upper airway. Research shows that oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.
