Our practice provides different alternatives that are less intrusive than CPAP machines.
The most commonly used method is oral appliance therapy. This can come in the form of either a mandibular advancement device (MAD) or tongue restraining device (TRD). A MAD works by stretching the soft tissue in the lower jaw, which can commonly be responsible for obstructing the airway and result in short, shallow breathing. For patients who need a different technique, the tongue restraining device can help hold the tongue down in a neutral position so as not to block airflow in the mouth. These devices are custom made to fit your unique mouth and jaw for the most comfortable feel. Throughout the course of wearing these, we can always make comfort adjustments to the fit as needed.
