Sleep Apnea Mouthpiece
Sleep apnea mouthpieces (Dental Appliances) are FDA approved. When used correctly a sleep apnea mouthpiece can effectively treat Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) and snoring.
Sleep apnea mouthpieces are worn while you sleep. The mouthpiece is designed to hold or advance the lower jaw and keep air flowing. This repositioning of the jaw helps prevent collapse and blockage of the airway. Dental appliance mouthpieces are effective immediately.
Sleep apnea mouthpieces work by opening the bite and holding or gently advancing the jaw to increase airflow while you sleep.

Is a sleep apnea mouthpiece a good CPAP alternative?
We regularly meet sleep apnea patients looking for CPAP alternatives. The main complaint about a CPAP is that they are uncomfortable and get in the way during sleep. another concern is that many CPAP machines regulate breathing rhythms, an artificial state of breathing. While a CPAP is a necessary option for some sleep apnea cases, many people with sleep apnea can replace their CPAP machine with a sleep apnea mouthpiece. Many of our patients use their dental sleep appliance as a back up for their CPAP in case of mechanical failure, during travel, or in combination.
