How can a dentist treat sleep apnea?

One of the most well-known treatments for sleep apnoea is CPAP therapy which uses a machine to keep air moving through your airway while you are sleeping. While this treatment is effective, many people fail it for a variety of reasons.

Another effective treatment for sleep apnoea (provided by a dentist) is an oral appliance that is worn while you sleep. This device is customised to fit your mouth and holds your airway open so that you can continue breathing while you sleep.
