These devices look like a mouth guard and are worn during sleep. Oral appliances move the tongue and lower jaw forward and upward to increase the size of the upper airway and help you breathe. Oral appliances are fitted by dentists who are trained in sleep medicine. They can be used for patients with any severity level of OSA. Most commonly they are used to help patients who snore, those with mild to moderate OSA, and those for whom PAP therapy has been unsuccessful.
