Custom made Oral Appliances no larger than orthodontic retainers can open your airway to eliminate snoring and sleep apnea.
We are very proud of our services to manage obstructive sleep apnea (or OSA) and snoring by utilizing dental devices.
If you snore or have a breathing related sleep disorder, Wexley Headache Clinic can help to determine your diagnosis and will help to select the most appropriate treatment.
A variety of oral airway appliances are available and will be recommended to you, depending on your anatomy and diagnosis. The oral appliance prevents collapse of the airway behind the tongue, palate, pharynx, and lateral pharyngeal walls. Oral appliances have been found to be effective for the treatment of snoring, apnea, and high upper airway resistance syndrome.
