Gain Much-Needed Sleep With a Custom Oral Appliance

18 MILLION Up to 18 million people in the U.S. have sleep apnea, with up to 4 million suffering from severe sleep apnea. Source.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common form of this disorder. With this specific type of apnea, the muscles in the back of your throat relax during sleep. Your airway becomes blocked and you stop breathing during the night. That’s why one of the many symptoms is waking up gasping for air while you sleep. Many people with sleep apnea use a CPAP machine to keep their airways open. While this can be an effective treatment, some patients find CPAP masks uncomfortable or have trouble sleeping with the device.

That’s why you’ll love our custom oral appliances. A custom sleep guard offers many unique benefits above and beyond a CPAP:

  • More Comfortable – Oral appliances are custom-fitted devices that gently reposition the jaw to keep your airways open. Unlike bulky CPAP masks, these discreet mouthpieces allow you to sleep peacefully without obtrusive equipment.
  • Greater Convenience – Your sleep guard is easy to wear and requires no complicated setup. Just put the sleep guard in your mouth, and you’re ready for bed. You clean it with a gentle soap and water, not a complicated routine.
  • Quiet Operation – Many patients can’t stand the noise of CPAP machines. A sleep appliance makes no sound. This allows you and your loved one to rest without disruption.
  • Improved Compliance – Oral appliances are a more comfortable, user-friendly alternative to a CPAP machine. As a result, you’re more likely to use an appliance consistently. This ensures optimal sleep apnea treatment.
