Oral appliance therapy

Revitalize your health through better sleep

Patients who use oral appliance therapy to treat their snoring and sleep apnea report feeling more rested and refreshed during the day, resulting in improved mood and a more positive outlook on life. Studies also show the therapy can lower the risk of health issues like heart attack, stroke, and depression. 
Dr. Guillaume Buiret
Head of Otolaryngology at Valence Hospital as quoted in the New York Times article, “For Sleep Apnea, a Mouth Guard May be a Good Alternative to CPAP”
[Oral appliance therapy] is easy to tolerate, effective and it costs a lot less than CPAP. Thirty to 40 percent of our patients can’t use CPAP, and these patients almost always find the dental appliance helpful. I would recommend it as a first-line treatment.

An effective alternative to traditional treatment methods

Many products on the market claim to treat snoring and sleep apnea, but symptom relief is limited and treatment drop off rates are high. For example, more than 65% of patients stop using their CPAP, according to a study published in the National Library of Medicine.¹

However, ignoring snoring and sleep apnea can have serious consequences. Breathing interruptions can leave people tired during the day, leading to a loss of productivity at work, moodiness, and depression. That’s where oral appliance therapy can help!
