Treatment for Sleep Apnea in Orem UT
When treating OSA, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is frequently suggested. A hose that connects to a mask or nasal device is worn throughout the night to receive a continuous flow of air from a machine. CPAP is an effective therapy, but many patients find it difficult to adapt to the hose and mask, as well as the noise of the machine interfering with their ability to fall asleep.
Working with our practice, we may offer oral devices to alleviate OSA symptoms without the noise and other difficulties associated with CPAP.
How does an intraoral appliance help?
During sleep, an intraoral device grips the jaw and pulls it slightly forward, thus allowing positive airflow through the nasal duct. Intraoral devices are available in a variety of forms, including those with thinner centerpieces that allow for more room for the tongue and extra lateral flexibility.
