What oral appliances can help with sleep apnea?

0

I have been a long time sufferer of sleep apnea, but I’m hesitant to take any medical or surgical action towards resolving it. I’ve heard of tongue retaining devices, are there any other oral appliances that may help with sleep apnea?

Hi there,

Thanks for your question. With sleep apnea, the airways collapse during sleep, and oral appliances help to prevent this from happening by holding the tongue or supporting the jaw.

Research shows that when it comes to helping patients with mild-to-moderate sleep apnea, oral appliances are 60-70% effective. Meanwhile, the non-invasive therapy is 85%-90% effective in reducing or eliminating snoring.
