There are three types of medical treatments available to the sufferers of obstructed sleep apnea: surgery, CPAP therapy and oral appliance therapy.

Oral Appliance Therapy

Oral appliance therapy is the first choice of physicians and patients seeking treatment of Obstructed Sleep Apnea today. The array of oral dental appliances are deemed far more comfortable to wear during sleep than the CPAP by a majority of patients. Obviously, this results in a far greater success rate in the treatment of OSA. Basically, oral dental appliances are custom fitted to the individual's specifications of the jaw. Oral dental appliances are created with materials such as acrylic, plastics, and sometimes include metal components. Oral dental appliances work by adjusting certain specific parts of the jaw or mouth. The base of the tongue is often manipulated in way that allows for the opening of the previously obstructed airway; eliminating the causes of the sleep apnea through a sort of physical "re-training" of the placement of the jaw and mouth.
