Oral appliance for the treatment of sleep apnea and snoring

In Australia, around 9% of women and 25% of men have clinically significant snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). It can cause morning headaches, excessive daytime fatigue, personality changes and depression, loss of memory and concentration, excessive snoring or waking during the night choking or gasping for air, insomnia or waking up with a dry mouth or sore throat. Due to poor quality of sleeping, it may affect academic and job performance.

There are several treatment options for sleep apnea. CPAP masks and dental anti-snoring devices are the most popular and efficient options.

Oral appliance therapy can help patients sleep more comfortably, as there is no need to wear a CPAP mask which means no machines, tubes or ties.
