Sleep Apnea Appliances
Sleep Apnea Appliances in Las Vegas, NV
Snoring and sleep apnea occurs when the soft tissues in your upper airway collapse onto themselves and vibrate against each other as we breathe. This produces the loud, and sometimes annoying sound, that we know as snoring. There are many contributions to airway narrowing, snoring, and sleep apnea such as large tonsils, a long soft palate, a large tongue, the uvula, and excess fat deposits in the throat. If your airways are more narrow than usual, you end up having louder snoring or worse sleep apnea.
Our office custom designs oral appliances are worn in the mouth while you sleep to treat bad snoring issues and sleep apnea. These devices are very similar in nature to sports mouth guards or retainers. Our therapy with oral applications involves us custom fitting and designing the appliance to your mouth and health needs. Our appliances work to maintain an open & unobstructed airway in the throat while you sleep. The appliances that we use are always suited for your comfort and to make sure you get the best sleep while reducing your sleep apnea issues.
