Oral appliance for Sleep Apnea

A considerable number of our patients who are undergoing treatment for obstructive sleep apnea encounter difficulties with CPAP intolerance or seek out more portable and convenient alternatives. River City Dental may advise oral appliance therapy in Wisconsin in such circumstances. These sleep apnea appliances are ergonomically designed to suit your mouth and assist you in obtaining the necessary rest.

River City Dental provides sleep appliances and solutions for snoring in order to guarantee that your patients have a restful and comfortable evening. By repositioning the lower mandible forward, these appliances relieve pressure and increase the space available for airflow in the throat. Additionally, it eradicates soft tissue collapse, the primary etiology of snoring and sleep apnea. Snoring and sleep aids are highly effective alternatives for individuals who are contraindicated for CPAP therapy or surgical intervention. Select a sleep appliance from the Thornton Adjustable Positioner® (TAP®) line, which includes the SomnoMed® Flex, TAP® 1, TAP® 3, TAP® 3 Elite, or Dream TAP®.

Our lab is well aware of the difficulties that accompany sleep apnea and snoring disorders. Because we believe that every individual is entitled to a restful night’s sleep, we provide oral appliance therapy as a viable treatment alternative. For sleep apnea and snoring, oral appliance therapy is a non-invasive, comfortable, and user-friendly treatment option.

Here are some of the benefits of oral appliance therapy that we would like to share with you:

  • Improves overall quality of life
  • Reduces the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke
  • Increases alertness and energy during the day
  • Promotes a more restful and uninterrupted sleep
  • Reduces the risk of accidents caused by daytime drowsiness

Our custom-made oral appliance is designed based on images of your airway and sinuses. Our team will create your appliance to fit your mouth perfectly, and it works by gently positioning your jaw in a slightly forward position while you sleep, expanding the airway. This helps to prevent the soft tissues at the back of your throat from collapsing and obstructing your airway, allowing you to breathe more easily and sleep soundly. Over time, this gentle positioning can guide your jaw to a healthier position.

We believe that every individual is entitled to a restful slumber, and we provide oral appliance therapy as an effective and noninvasive treatment alternative. We encourage you to schedule a consultation with us if you are experiencing sleep apnea or snoring to learn more about the potential benefits of oral appliance therapy and oral expansion. Sleep apnea should not continue to interfere with your life; contact our office immediately to begin the process of achieving a more restful night’s sleep.
