Improve your sleep, restore your alertness, and revitalize your health with a custom-fit oral sleep appliance. Many patients highly prefer using an oral sleep appliance like the Moses® to a CPAP machine. Ask us today about this life-changing treatment.
Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) results from a collapsed airway due to an obstruction. Sleep apnea can cause a number of problems that may endanger overall health. Depending on the severity of the condition and a patient’s lifestyle, the symptoms may range from mild to severe. Sleep deprivation and oxygen deprivation, the two primary effects of sleep apnea, can lead to serious health conditions.
For many apnea sufferers, oral appliances can relieve most or all symptoms associated with the condition and help patients get deep restorative sleep without interruption. Oral appliances are a safe, holistic way to treat sleep apnea and can be customized for comfort. As technology in this area of dentistry continues to improve, sleep apnea patients have a more effective and convenient option for the relief of symptoms including snoring.
The Moses® appliance is a comfortable, highly-effective method for sleep apnea treatment. Many of our patients prefer this smaller sized appliance to the often dreaded CPAP machine. The Moses® is customized so the patient can easily talk, drink, open wide and close their lips. They no longer have the discomfort of dry mouth in the mornings. The claustrophobic locked jaw and mouth breather designs of earlier mandibular advancement devices are eliminated. After a short time, you forget it is in! Patients wear it because they feel better now that their symptoms are reduced or completely diminished.
