Can an Oral Appliance Help with Sleep Apnea?

Posted on 2/13/2018 by Tessa Smith-Greisch
Sleep Apnea Madison Oral Surgery & Dental Implants WI 53713Usually when a person suffers from sleep apnea, there are a few different appliances and products that can be used to help them not only breathe better throughout the night, but sleep better overall.

Some products fit right over the mouth and nose to provide airflow throughout the person's face while they sleep so that their bodies do not forget to stop breathing, since this is one of the most common things that happen when someone suffers from sleep apnea.

However, there is another method to treat the problem and it is known as an oral appliance.

What is an Oral Appliance?

An oral appliance is used to provide the person with a way to push their tongue towards the front of their mouth so that it does not sit in the back of the throat. This obstructs their airway and can cause them to not be able to breathe.

This would not be a good thing since it can cause them to choke or stop breathing while they sleep. Since OSA or obstructive sleep apnea is a dangerous condition to have, an oral appliance is highly recommended for those that are suffering from the condition to ensure that they have a safe sleep condition.

Only an oral surgeon that specializes in sleep apnea can provide the right fitted mouthpiece for a patient. This is why it is important that you are seen by a professional sooner, rather than later for this dangerous condition.
