Sleep Apnea Devices

Your sleep impacts every aspect of your health and daily life. Sleeping well helps you look, feel, and perform your best. Having a sleep problem can be harmful to your health and well-being. One of the most common sleep problems is obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea devices can help alleviate sleep apnea issues.

Sleep apnea is serious and can sometimes be a fatal medical disorder that affects around 10% of men and 6% of women over the age of 40 in the United States. Sleep apnea sufferers completely stop breathing during sleep, sometimes hundreds of times in a single night. Normal breathing ceases because the airway becomes obstructed, causing a serious reduction of airflow to the lungs.

Sleep Apnea Dental Device

Research shows that oral sleep apnea devices are an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea.

An oral appliance is worn in the mouth only while you sleep and fits like a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer. Patients that have the sleep apnea dental device report that they have stopped loud snoring, they feel more rested in the daytime, and they are much more comfortable going to sleep.

This device offers a viable alternative to Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) and is more comfortable to wear. Most patients consider a sleep apnea dental device to be more comfortable to wear than a CPAP mask and the appliance doesn't make noises, like the CPAP.

Oral Sleep Apnea Devices Can Help

At Robertsdale Dental Care, we recommend a sleep apnea dental device that is customized, comfortable to wear, and is used to alleviate this condition. The goal of this sleep apnea dental device is to separate the jaws and push the lower jaw forward slightly. This slight repositioning opens up the airway,and allows oxygen to flow freely again.

Untreated sleep apnea can raise your risk for serious health problems. Oral sleep apnea devices can help with many conditions that include:


  • High blood pressure

  • Stroke.

  • Heart disease.

  • Diabetes.

  • Chronic acid reflux.

  • Erectile dysfunction.

Common Signs/Symptoms of Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea sufferers completely stop breathing during sleep, sometimes hundreds of times in a single night. Normal breathing ceases because the airway becomes obstructed, causing a serious reduction of airflow to the lungs. Typical Symptoms include:


  • Snoring.

  • Gasping for air.

  • Choking sounds.

  • Excessive daytime sleepiness.

  • Morning headaches.

  • Memory loss.

Like snoring, sleep apnea is more prevalent in men, but it can occur in women too, commonly during and after menopause. Having excess body weight, a narrow airway or misaligned jaw, all increase the risk of sleep apnea.
