Would an Oral Appliance Give You Better Sleep?


Do you struggle with snoring, or have you been told that at times during your sleep, you stop breathing? If so, you may have sleep apnea. One way that we treat sleep apnea is by using an oral appliance. It holds your mouth in place to help prop your airway open further. This makes breathing in your sleep easier, and it keeps it to where what sleep you get, is less interrupted. The first thing you need is a proper diagnosis, which we can help with. Call us today and let us see if you do have an issue with your sleep that we could help treat.

How Does an Oral Appliance work?


An oral appliance is typically used to treat obstructive sleep apnea. It works by keeping your jaw and tongue in a forward position, which prevents them from blocking your airway, even after the muscles fully relax.

The appliance, similar to a retainer, clamps on to the teeth in your upper and lower jaws. In some cases, the upper and lower portions are connected with a tube that keeps your lower jaw, chin, and tongue in a forward position. With these parts pushed forward, the airway is kept open, allowing you to breathe properly during every stage of sleep.

Oral appliances are considered easier to use than other options, such as CPAP machines. To fabricate your device, we will take an impression of your teeth and gums. This ensures your custom-fit appliance will be precise, comfortable, and effective. It can also protect your teeth from the harmful effects of nocturnal bruxism (teeth grinding).


"My experience with Dr. Bembey has been great… She explains everything that needs to done and makes sure you understand ... She cares about your overall well-being…. Her assistants also made sure I was comfortable and if I needed anything…. I am very happy with the dental work that has been done…. I have already passed on her information to a friend for her future dental work…" - Catherine L.
