Appliances for Sleeping


Sleep apnea is a serious and debilitating disorder that occurs when a person´s breathing is interrupted during sleep. Symptoms can include loud snoring, restless sleep, morning headaches, daytime fatigue, irritability, mood swings, depression, and learning and/or memory difficulties. If left untreated, sleep apnea can result in a growing number of health problems, including cardiovascular disease, heart attack, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, and even sudden death. Sleep apnea affects more men than women, with an estimated one in every 15 people affected by at least moderate sleep apnea.


The most common type of sleep apnea, obstructive sleep apnea, is caused by a blockage of the airway, usually when the soft tissue in the back of the throat collapses during sleep. While behavioral changes can help to some degree, dental appliances have been found to be a more effective treatment for people suffering from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. The advantage of a dental appliance is that it does not require surgery and it is small and more portable than a bulky CPAP machine.
