Sleep Apnea Dental Appliance in Houston, TX

Sleep Apnea Dental Appliance

Are you considering a dental appliance to manage sleep apnea? Maybe you do not want to use CPAP (continuous positive air pressure) therapy, or it is not working. Whatever your reason, we can help by providing you with a quality and custom-fitted sleep apnea dental appliance.

Visit us today and get yourself a comfortable sleep apnea dental device made by a dentist certified by the American Sleep Medicine Academy.

How Do Sleep Apnea Dental Devices Work?

Sleep apnea oral devices, made by professionals like Polish Dentistry, are an arguably more comfortable CPAP therapy alternative. They work by helping keep your airway open while you sleep. They achieve that by:

  • Pushing the lower jaw forward slightly
  • Holding the tongue so that it won’t fall backward and cause obstruction of airflow
  • Or the device can do both of the above actions simultaneously.

Types Of Sleep Apnea Dental Appliances

At Polish Dentistry, our dentist in Houston, TX 77006 makes the two types of sleep apnea dental appliances:

Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD)

This type of sleep apnea dental appliance resembles the mouth guards used in sports. It keeps your airway open by pushing forward the lower jaw. We make MADs that allow you to control how much to move the lower jaw.

Tongue Retaining Device

This sleep apnea device keeps your airway open by holding the tongue in place.

Our dentist near you makes custom devices after a thorough evaluation and sleep test. We make custom devices to determine the best treatment option.

Advantages Of Sleep Apnea Dental Appliances

  • Improves the symptoms of sleep apnea, such as snoring, daytime fatigue, and moodiness
  • Oral devices are quiet, and they do not need electricity.
  • An alternative for people who are unable to tolerate CPAP
  • A convenient choice when traveling
  • Cheaper than CPAP

What To Expect During Oral Sleep Apnea Treatment

The first step is determining whether you are a good candidate for a sleep apnea dental appliance. We might have to consult with your sleep doctor or conduct the evaluation ourselves. We also determine what type of device is the best treatment option during the evaluation process.

After determining an oral device is a good option, we make an impression of your teeth to help make a fitting device that will help manage your condition. On the second appointment, you will try on the device to see if it fits, and we will make the necessary adjustments to make it as comfortable in your mouth as possible.
