SNORING AND SLEEP APNEA
Sleep Apnea is a potentially serious disorder, in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts during the night. Snoring and mild to moderate Sleep Apnea can often be treated with an oral appliance. While physicians often recommend a CPAP, many patients find an oral appliance less intrusive and more comfortable. The appliance consists of plastic retainers that fit over the teeth and move the jaw forward. This creates a larger airway, which increases airflow. It is effective for about 70% of patients with mild to moderate Sleep Apnea and snoring.
It is often covered by medical insurance if accompanied by a sleep study and prescription.
