How an Oral Appliance Can Improve Apnea Symptoms


Posted on 4/25/2019 by Palisades Surgical Arts
How an Oral Appliance Can Improve Apnea SymptomsSleep apnea is a serious problem that can affect not only the person that is suffering from it but can affect others around it. That is because sleep apnea causes a variety of symptoms. Snoring can keep others awake. It can lead to everyone suffering from sleep deprivation. Other symptoms can impact the way a person lives their daily life.

The severity of the symptoms varies. Some people have only minor inconveniences because of their sleep apnea. The symptoms they feel are so minor they may not even realize they suffer from it. Others are impacted in a much larger way and need to find a way to treat their sleep apnea. We offer a few ways to help someone that suffers from sleep apnea. One method is through the use of oral appliances and mouthguards.

What Are Oral Appliances?

An oral appliance is a device custom made to fit an individual's mouth. There are a variety of ways that the oral appliance can help people. It is an effective tool against bruxism and teeth grinding. It can also prevent one of the reasons that people suffer from sleep apnea.

How they Help
The oral appliance can help position the jaw, tongue and mouth in a way that prevents the muscles from relaxing and blocking the airway. This is the most common form of sleep apnea and is known as obstructive sleep apnea. The oral appliance can also prevent the tongue from moving and blocking the airway. It can put the jaw into a position that keeps the airway open.

Sleep apnea is a problem for many people. While there are several different types of sleep apnea, they all boil down to one main thing. For one reason or another a person is not able to get the air their body needs to function while they sleep. The oral appliances are one of the best, most economical and easiest ways to resolve the issues that surround sleep apnea.
