If you are plagued by snoring or teeth grinding while you sleep, or you have a CPAP machine that you no longer tolerate, the dentists at New Era Dental are here with alternative treatment options.
Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
A custom-fit oral sleep appliance can improve your sleep, restore your alertness and revitalize your health. Worn only during sleep, an oral appliance fits like a sports mouthguard or an orthodontic retainer. It supports the jaw in a forward position to help maintain an open upper airway.
Research shows that oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. If you and your doctor decide that this therapy is the best treatment option for you, you’ll receive a prescription for a custom-made oral appliance based on a recommendation from your New Era sleep apnea dentist. More than 100 oral appliances have received FDA clearance and oral appliance therapy is covered by many medical insurance plans.
