Oral appliances fit into the mouth much like a retainer or athletic mouth guard. They are designed for comfort, convenience, ease-of-use and versatility. Patients can easily take them along on overnight trips without the need for carrying additional equipment or managing uncomfortable tubes and masks. Most people adjust to custom-designed oral appliances quickly and are able to achieve adequate symptom relief. Dr. Marine Martirosyan can help patients determine the most appropriate treatment strategies for their needs.
While oral appliances are extremely effective for most people with mild to moderate sleep apnea and even some patients with more severe apnea, some patients may need to make additional lifestyle changes. Weight loss, medication changes, increased exercise and reduced alcohol or tobacco use may all be helpful. Patients with more severe sleep apnea may benefit from both oral appliances and CPAP therapy, which can help maintain open airways better than either treatment alone. Regular follow-up care is usually needed to monitor treatment and ensure adequate symptom relief.
