Appliances For Sleep Apnea Treatment
An oral appliance for sleep apnea lets you open your mouth naturally to speak or drink. A sleep apnea mouth guard can also help you stop snoring by encouraging you to breathe through your nose (something your partner will appreciate).
Sleep apnea is sometimes caused by soft tissue collapsing at the back of your throat, especially if you're carrying extra pounds. When this happens, it blocks your airway while you sleep. Sleep apnea can cause you to stop breathing up to hundreds of times a night, which is why it's important to talk with your holistic dentist as soon as possible if you suspect something's wrong.
