Treating Obstructive Sleep Apnea with
Oral Sleep Appliances
Obstructive sleep apnea is a common condition that causes airways to become blocked leading to a fitful cycle of waking and sleeping. The good news is that OSA can be corrected without surgery or an uncomfortable CPAP machine. Oral appliances are worn during sleep and support the jaw in a forward position, allowing the upper airway to stay open. Eastmont Family Dental offers oral sleep appliances customized for your mouth to help you sleep easier.
