Snoring and Apnea Therapy
Patient with light or moderate sleep apnea "cessation of breath" we usually apply an upper and lower mouthpiece at night. Before they go to sleep they put these appliances over their teeth, during the day they do not have wo wear them .
Our mouthpieces work the best, when you have an obstructive apnea, which means less snoring when you sleep on your side and not on your back, also not being overweight.
With central Apnea (when the brain fails to send the appropriate signals to the muscles to initiate breathing) our protrusive splints are not effective .
However , we recommend to try first a protrusive splint before you decide for a surgical intervention.
