Oral Appliances: The Comfortable Way to Treat Sleep Apnea
Typically, the first treatment recommended for sleep apnea is a CPAP machine. Though they’re effective when used properly, many patients find the bulky mask and loud noise from the machine are disruptive to their sleep. As a result, patients often stop using their CPAP machine and don’t get the restorative sleep they need.
That’s why Dr. Birth recommends oral appliance therapy as a more convenient and less invasive alternative to CPAP. These customized mouthguards are comfortable to wear, silent, easily portable, and allow you to sleep in any position you like.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is sleep apnea?
Sleep apnea is a common sleeping disorder that interrupts your breathing overnight. This wakes you up several times throughout the night, preventing you from getting the quality rest you need to function properly. Without treatment, sleep apnea can lead to a wide range of serious health consequences.
How does an oral appliance work?
A sleep apnea oral appliance is designed to gently shift your lower jaw forward, expanding the airway and allowing you to breathe freely overnight. It also prevents your tongue from collapsing into the airway and blocking your flow of oxygen. With the help of an oral appliance, you can comfortably manage your sleep apnea and wake up feeling refreshed.
