Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea appliances are another way Ernie Anderson DDS can help The Woodlands sleep apnea patients sleep soundly. Worn while you sleep, oral appliances can hold your mouth and jaw in such a way that makes breathing easier and will stop snoring. A sleep apnea oral appliance fits into your mouth like a mouthguard, nightguard or orthodontic retainer.

Oral appliance therapy is a popular alternative to CPAP treatment. There are many options, and Dr. Anderson can help you choose which sleep apnea appliance might be best for your obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

One sleep apnea remedy is the mandibular advancement system (MAS), also known as a mandibular advancement device (MAD). This oral splint is a dental appliance the lower jaw slightly forward, which can effectively treat sleep apnea and also provide snoring prevention.

There are many other types of sleep apnea equipment. Generally, oral appliances for snoring and sleep apnea are made of soft plastic or hard acrylic. Some incorporate wires or rubber bands to provide the right sort of pressure. Almost all of them require a prescription and a professional fitting by Dr. Anderson or sleep apnea physician. If a dental appliance doesn't fit properly, it can lead to orthodontic problems and trouble breathing.
