The problem for many sleep apnea sufferers is that the traditional treatment is somewhat uncomfortable. A CPAP, while necessary for some, is not ideal for many others with this sleep disorder. However, treatment is a must. Without it, patients put themselves at an increased risk for weight gain, heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, depression, anxiety, and fatigue.
An oral appliance fits into your mouth much like an athletic mouthguard. Your appliance will be custom-made to fit your teeth so that it is comfortable to wear at night.
