Oral appliances can do wonders for individuals with sleep apnea. Their purpose is to move the tongue and lower jaw forward during sleep in order to maintain an open airway. With an oral appliance, an individual with sleep apnea can prevent the collapse of the soft tissue and the back of the throat. Although oral appliances may be used alone, they are often paired with CPAP, changing sleep position, weight loss, or another type of sleep apnea treatment.
Fortunately, oral appliances are very comfortable to wear and do not take a great deal of time to get used to. They are also small in size and easy to carry, making them a great option for sleep apnea patients who travel often. In addition, they are non-invasive and an excellent choice for sleep apnea patients who cannot tolerate CPAP or do not want to undergo a surgical procedure.
If you are suffering from sleep apnea and looking for a way to improve your sleep quality and quality of life, a dentist at Wainright & Wassel DDS may recommend the Narval CC by ResMed. The Narval CC is one of the lightest oral appliances on the market and specifically engineered using a CAD/CAM milling unit to be comfortable, discreet, and effective. It is comprised of a biocompatible material that is free of metal and will give you the option to speak and drink.
Narval CC is so effective because it holds your jaw in a forward position while you sleep to keep your airway open, prevent snoring and obstruction and expand the space between your tongue. If you use Narval CC, you’ll also reap the benefits of a 3 year warranty.
