Sleep Apnea Mouth Guard Options vary from patient to patient.
For people with obstructive sleep apnea, sleeping with a CPAP machine can sometimes be just as frustrating as not getting any sleep at all. The bulky machinery and loud noises might even cause your sleep partner to pick another bedroom. If you’re CPAP intolerant or unable to go another day like this, you might want to talk to our Gilbert dentist about an oral appliance for sleeping disorders.
Here is a detailed list of Sleep Apnea Mouth Guard Options.
Oral Sleep Apnea Appliances
Rather than forcing oxygen through your airway with a machine, an oral appliance naturally opens your airway near the back of your throat. Through the use of a custom mouthpiece, Dr. Hanna can help to reposition your jaw in a way that prevents soft tissues from collapsing together.
Each sleep apnea appliance is carefully made to fit our individual patients. In fact, we’ll even want to talk to your sleep physician or pulmonologist before making the device. If you already have a prescription for an oral sleep appliance, we’re happy to get started!
A Quiet, Non-Invasive Way to Sleep Better
Because a sleep apnea mouth guard doesn’t require any extra equipment to work, you can sleep more quietly (even on your side!) It’s also portable, making it easy to take with you on vacation or out of town trips over the weekend. If you share your bedroom, your sleep partner will more than likely be thrilled.
At Smiles by Hanna, we work with individuals who have sleep apnea to help them find a comfortable, non-invasive solution for a better night’s rest. Even if you haven’t been diagnosed with a sleeping disorder, Dr. Hanna is happy to discuss options with you and screen you for oral signs of sleeping disorders. Call us today.
