CPAP isn’t your only option for sleep apnea.

Dr Mansour can help you manage your snoring and sleep apnea with a custom-designed oral appliance made just for you. Mandibular advancement dental device, or oral appliance therapy (OAT), has been an efficient way to treat sleep apnea for the past 30 years. Along with improving your sleep, these devices can decrease your risk of complications from snoring and sleep apnea.

Oral appliances are medical devices that should be provided by trained dentists who have access to the highest quality products. Over-the-counter anti-snoring devices are DIY and may create side effects like jaw pain and dental changes if improperly fit. To avoid these problems and start sleeping soundly, visit an AADSM Qualified Dentist.

Understanding Oral Appliance Therapy

Oral appliance therapy is an effective treatment option for snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). An oral appliance fits over your teeth like an orthodontic retainer while you sleep and supports your jaw in a forward position to keep your airway open. A custom-fit oral appliance can improve your sleep, restore your alertness, and revitalize your health.

If you and your doctor decide that oral appliance therapy is the best treatment option for you, your doctor can write a prescription referring you to Dr. Mansour to make a custom-fit oral appliance for you. Dr. Mansour will provide ongoing treatment to make sure your appliance remains comfortable and effective for you.

OAT is an effective, non-invasive treatment that fits easily into your lifestyle. Patients like oral appliance therapy because it is:

  • Easy to wear
  • Quiet
  • Portable
  • Convenient
  • Comfortable
  • Easy to care for
  • Custom-fit, unlike over-the-counter anti-snoring devices
