Oral Sleep Appliances
If Janice K. Pliszczak, DDS determines you have sleep apnea she may fit you with an oral device to help you sleep safely. These devices work by moving your bottom jaw forward to reduce the chances of the your tongue falling backward and blocking your airway while you sleep.
Sleep appliances are typically prescribed to treat mild cases of sleep apnea or to patients who cannot use positive airway pressure therapy (CPAP machine).
Many of our patients find that these appliances are quite comfortable and are an effective means of reducing snoring and restless nights.
