How Do Oral Appliances Work?

1300 101 505

The main way that oral appliances work is by preventing the tissues at the back of the throat and the base of the tongue from collapsing back into the airway. An oral appliance holds the lower jaw a little forward which results in a significant increase in the size of the airway at the back of the tongue and palate, sufficient to prevent snoring and allow for a refreshing sleep.

Custom made oral appliances fitted by a dentist allows for greater comfort and fine tuning to find the optimal position of the jaw that overcomes the snoring and sleep apnoea.
