At DesertSmiles we help many patients in Phoenix and Glendale improve their quality of life through improved sleep with oral appliances. They help keep the airway open while we sleep and decrease annoying snoring sounds for the bed partner. In severe sleep apnea the CPAP is the first choice of treatment but many patients have difficulty being compliant with the device. A recent study in the November 2010 issue of Sleep Breathing showed the combination of an oral appliance and nasal CPAP was better tolerated by patients than CPAP alone due to the decreased pressure require to eliminate OSA due to the oral appliances ability to keep the airway open.
