What is it?
Sleep apnoea appliances are designed to help treat sleep apnoea and similar sleeping conditions. They are worn through the night and work by helping to hold your jaw in a forward position to keep your airways open. This allows you to breathe normally. It also prevents loud snoring, or the disruptive waking caused by sleep apnoea.
Custom-made sleep apnoea appliances need to be fitted by a dentist or orthodontist. Because they are individually fitted for you, they are comfortable and easy to wear. Unlike other sleep apnoea solutions such as CPAP machines, they are very portable and easy to care for.
