An estimated 22 million people suffer from sleep apnea in the United States. Sleep apnea can cause you to stop breathing temporarily, resulting in an oxygen-deprived brain and raising the risks of mood issues, and cardiovascular diseases.

At Sabeti Cosmetic Dentistry, we offer oral appliance therapy which can help alleviate some symptoms of sleep apnea and improve sleep quality and your general health.

What is Oral Appliance Therapy

Oral appliance therapy is considered to be an effective treatment for obstructive sleep apnea and snoring. It involves wearing an oral appliance in your mouth, which is similar to a mouthguard. The appliance is designed to hold your mouth in a certain position to aid breathing during sleep.

Oral appliances are made-to-fit to be effective, which is why over-the-counter stock mouthguards and oral splints are not recommended for correcting sleep apnea.

Types of Oral Appliances

At Sabeti Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Shohreh Sabeti use a wide variety of oral appliances for sleep apnea.

However, these devices typically fall under two major categories:
•  Mandibular Repositioning Devices: Mandibular repositioning devices bring your lower jaw downwards and forwards so that your airways remains open while you sleep. These are the most popularly used devices.
•  Tongue retaining devices: These devices are designed to hold your tongue at the front of the mouth so that it doesn’t slide back and obstruct your airway.

Benefits of Oral Appliances

There are many benefits associated with wearing oral appliances:
•  Health Benefits: If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea, oral appliances can help reduce its symptoms and reduce the risks of hypertension, diabetes, heart attack, and stroke. You will also experience alertness, improved mood, and better concentration during the day.
•  Easy to Wear: A lot of patients wear oral appliances because they are easy to use and more comfortable than other treatments like CPAP.
•  Quiet: Oral appliances also do not produce any noises, like the CPAP machine, during the night.
•  Portable: Oral appliances are small enough that they can be easily placed inside a small purse or backpack and taken with you if you are traveling.
•  Easy Care: When you are not using the appliance, you can lightly brush it, dry it and place it in their container.

Common Side Effects of Oral Appliances

Although oral appliances do not result in major complications, some people can feel some minor side effects. These include:
•  Dry mouth or excessive saliva.
•  Tooth, jaw, or facial muscle ache.
•  Temporary changes in your bite.
•  Some people may feel the oral appliance is bulky.

Using oral appliances to correct your sleep apnea can make you feel like a brand new person. Oral appliances can help reduce negative symptoms of sleep apnea, improve the quality of your sleep, and give you a healthier heart and general health. You will find that your bed partner will also enjoy a better, more restful sleep.
