The Science Behind Dental Sleep Devices
Opening the Airway with an Oral Device
If you have sleep apnea, your breath can become shallow, or you may even stop breathing while you sleep. This occurs when the airway is blocked by the tongue dropping back and closing the airway. In severe cases the state of not breathing can occur up to hundreds of times a night. A dental sleep device holds the lower jaw forward allowing the airway to remain open while sleeping.
