An alternative to continuous positive airway pressure therapy is an oral appliance, a medical device approved for the treatment of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and snoring. The appliance is worn over your teeth during sleep. It works by moving your lower jaw forward or preventing it from falling back during sleep to ensure a continuous air supply. You are able to reposition them yourself to achieve maximum benefit. Your Able dentist will customize an appliance using a mold of your teeth to maximize fit and comfort. Evidence suggests over-the-counter “boil-and-bite” appliances do not work on OSA and should be avoided.
