Wear a Comfortable Sleep Guard to Stop Apnea Symptoms

One of the most common forms of sleep apnea is obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This is when the soft tissues in your throat relax and cover your airways during the night. This causes frequent interruptions in breathing that prevent you from getting restful sleep. You may experience symptoms such as snoring, waking up gasping for air, morning headaches, and dry mouth.

Your dentist can give you an oral appliance that keeps your airways open and prevents these symptoms. It’s easier to wear than a CPAP machine, another common treatment for this sleep disorder. You can expect many benefits with a sleep appliance:

  • Unobtrusive – This custom sleep guard will fit snugly in your mouth. Unlike the CPAP, which can be noisy, this appliance is quiet. There is also no mask. It minimizes disturbances to your partner’s rest.
  • Effortless to Maintain  – You don’t have to deal with electrical outlets or special equipment like you do with a CPAP. The sleep apnea appliance is easy to wear. You just put the device into your mouth before you sleep. It’s easy to take along with you when you travel too.
  • Comfortable to Wear – A sleep guard is comfortable to wear and allows you to breath naturally. In contrast, CPAP machines often lead to dry mouth and other issues that make it difficult to use.
