Sleep Apnea

Oral appliances, also called dental appliances or devices, may be a great option for patients suffering from sleep apnea who cannot tolerate CPAP machines. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends dental devices for patients with mild-to-moderate obstructive sleep apnea who are not appropriate candidates for CPAP or who have not been helped by it. (CPAP should be used for patients with moderate-to-severe sleep apnea whenever possible.)
