How Mouth Guards Help with Sleep Apnea

For those with sleep apnea—a fairly common sleep disorder in which you periodically stop and start breathing—getting a restful night’s sleep can seem impossible. People with sleep apnea may snore loudly or wake up tired despite sleeping for plenty of hours. In this condition, breath is usually interrupted when the throat muscles relax and the airway becomes blocked. A custom mouth guard or oral appliance from our Orlando dental office can gently move the jaw forward or hold the tongue in place, increasing the size of the upper airway and allowing breath to continue unimpeded during sleep.

A sleep apnea mouth guard is often used instead of a CPAP machine or oral surgery. It can be an effective treatment if you have a mild to moderate form of the disorder.

Oral appliance therapy is a popular alternative to a CPAP machine because:

  • It’s easier to use since it does not require electricity
  • It’s discreet and far less detectable to a bed partner
  • It’s portable and compact, making it ideal for travel
  • It often provides an immediate improvement, even on the first night

We find that, because of these reasons, you are more likely to use an oral appliance, which often leads to a drastic improvement in your health and well-being. Our dentists at Lake Lucerne Lifestyle Dental in Orlando can prescribe one for you. Visit us today.
