Sleep Apnea Appliances
Anti-snoring Appliance Helps You Sleep
When you are tossing and turning, waking up 100 times a night, snoring like a train, waking up lacking energy and feeling not fresh, you may have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea by your sleep doctor. This is a condition when you stop breathing at night because your airway gets plugged with your tongue or tissues in the neck (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) or your brain stops sending signals to your lungs to inhale (Central Sleep Apnea).
There are a few ways to manage the Obstructive Sleep Apnea: CPAP machine or Sleep Apnea appliance. The CPAP machine blows the air into your lungs to help you breathe. The Sleep Apnea (anti-snoring) appliance moves your lower jaw forward during the night and opens up valuable space in your windpipe to inhale better and supply your brain with oxygen.
