Mandibular repositioning devices are often used to correct sleep apnea without the use of CPAP equipment. Dental appliances alleviate sleep apnea symptoms by repositioning the lower jaw and ensuring the airway remains open while sleeping.
Oral appliances provide a simple, comfortable solution for mild to moderate sleep apnea. These appliances are silent, more comfortable, and require less maintenance than a CPAP machine, making them the ideal choice for sleep apnea treatment.
If you elect to treat your mild to moderate sleep apnea with an oral device, the treatment process is fairly straightforward. You’ll work with our team to ensure you have a perfect fit, and your oral device is effectively managing your sleep apnea symptoms. When properly calibrated, your appliance will hold your jaw in a natural position as you sleep, allowing ideal oxygen flow throughout the night. Maintaining adequate oxygen flow allows you to have an uninterrupted, restful night’s sleep.
Interested in treating your sleep apnea with a mandibular repositioning device? Here’s what to expect:
- You’ll have an initial consultation with Dr. Eversgerd. We will ensure your teeth are in good condition and you’re a good candidate for an oral device for treating your sleep apnea.
- Dr. Eversgerd will work with your primary care physician and sleep specialist. This team approach ensures you’re receiving effective treatment and customizing a plan to meet your specific needs.
- You’ll have follow-up visits to confirm that your device is working correctly. Adjustments to calibrate your positioner can be made during follow up visits.
