Common Oral Devices

Oral devices work by gently repositioning the lower jaw or tongue, preventing airway collapse and reducing snoring. They treat snoring, but importantly, also treat sleep apnea events that disturb your sleep.

There are different types of oral devices. Some reposition both the lower jaw and tongue, while others more strictly focus on keeping the tongue in a forward position. The right oral device for a patient can depend on the sleep apnea diagnosis and the unique anatomy of the user.

Are oral devices the same thing as oral appliances?

Yes, the names of oral devices and oral appliances are interchangeable. These are an effective treatment option as an alternative to CPAP. These devices position the jaw or the tongue to remove airway obstructions during sleep. Both refer to devices used in oral device therapy to treat sleep apnea. These devices are approved by the FDA as an effective treatment option, demonstrating their safety and ability to efficiently treat obstructive sleep apnea.

Are oral devices an effective CPAP alternative?

Oral devices offer an effective alternative to CPAP therapy, especially for individuals with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Many individuals find CPAP to be intolerable or difficult to comply with over the long term. These oral devices work by repositioning the jaw, tongue, or soft palate to keep the airway open during sleep. As an FDA-approved treatment, these devices can help you regain your sleep and improve your overall health. Our sleep professionals specialize in this treatment option.
