Treatment Options

Oral Appliance

ORAL APPLIANCES

For mild to moderate sleep apnea, oral appliance therapy offers many of the same health benefits as CPAP: By treating your sleep apnea, you can reduce your risk for heart disease, stroke and diabetes. You will also improve your daytime alertness, concentration and emotional stability.

Ease of use: Some patients prefer oral appliances because they can be easy to wear. For most patients it takes a few weeks to get used to sleeping with an oral appliance in your mouth.

Small and easy to transport: Traveling with your sleep apnea treatment is easy with an oral appliance therapy. Unlike CPAP, oral appliances are small enough to fit in your purse or carry-on bag.

Oral appliance therapy is a popular first-line treatment option for those with ... mild-to-moderate OSA. Oral appliances fit in the mouth like a night guard or sports guard. These appliances are custom fit and worn while you sleep. They prevent the tongue and other soft tissues from collapsing over the back of the throat, which helps keep the airways open. This promotes optimal airflow and healthy sleep patterns in people with OSA or those who snore. If you snore, have mild or moderate sleep apnea, or have more severe OSA and have not been able to tolerate other therapies, oral appliances may be a good option for you. Oral appliances can also be used in conjunction with other therapies.

Appliances do need to be professionally fit by our experienced sleep apnea dentists. Over-the-counter snoring devices are not designed to address sleep apnea and could aggravate the problem.

Continuous positive airway pressure machine

CPAP

A Continuous positive air pressure machine, or CPAP, is the standard OSA treatment and the most common choice for most sufferers. It consists of a special pump that pushes air through tubes that are connected to a face or nasal mask. The positive air pressure keeps nasal passages and airways... open to prevent the collapse that occurs with OSA. CPAP is an effective treatment for patients with any level of sleep apnea. Read more

Surgery for sleep apnea

SURGERY

Surgery is not a first line treatment for those with OSA, but it can be an option for those who do not respond to more conservative therapies, such as an oral appliance or CPAP machine. Several types of sleep apnea surgeries are available and generally chosen based on a patient’s... individual risk factors and needs. A careful evaluation of your symptoms and anatomical structures will be needed to determine the location of the obstruction and the best solution. Read more

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequent, loud snoring may be a sign of sleep apnea, a common and potentially serious disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts as you sleep. Not everyone who snores has sleep apnea and not everyone who has sleep apnea snores. The biggest indication is how you feel during the day. Normal snoring doesn’t interfere with the quality of your sleep as much as sleep apnea does, so you’re less likely to suffer from extreme fatigue and sleepiness during the day if you have simple snoring as opposed to obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Sleep apnea is a condition that affects the way you breathe when you’re sleeping. In untreated sleep apnea, breathing is briefly interrupted or becomes very shallow during sleep. These episodes typically last between 10 to 20 seconds and can occur up to hundreds of times a night.

OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA AND SNORING – NARROWED AIRWAY

NORMAL SLEEP AIRWAY

OBSTRUCTED AIRWAY

Oral Sleep Appliances treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) by advancing the lower jaw which keeps the airways open. The appliance is custom-made to fit your mouth and consists of upper and lower splint that cover your teeth and will be titrated to advance your lower jaw throughout the treatment process. As your jaw moves forward it, in turn, helps open your airway allowing you to breathe easier and sleep more comfortably for longer periods of time, helping you to reach deep, REM sleep.

How COAT (Continuous Open Airway Therapy) Works

More than 450,000 patients around the world have treated mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and/or sleep bruxism with the oral appliances we use. Worn during sleep, the oral appliances are customized to offer superior comfort and quality to each individual patient. In fact, 91% of patients reported improvement in sleep quality while wearing their device.
