What is Oral Appliance Therapy?
Oral Appliance Therapy (sometimes referred to as Dental Appliance Therapy) is the use of an appliance worn in the mouth, similar to a sports mouth guard or retainer, at night while sleeping. The dental appliance is custom fit to your mouth and is adjusted by your dentist so that it positions your lower jaw (called the mandible) in a way that keeps your tongue out of your airway at night while you sleep. The appliance allows you to breathe more easily while you sleep which leads to a better night’s sleep and you feeling more refreshed in the morning.
