About Oral Sleep Appliances

Customised oral sleep appliances improve your oxygen intake and open your upper airway with a non-invasive, therapeutic mouthpiece. Rather than force air through your nose and mouth with a CPAP machine, a custom prosthesis is worn over your teeth that manually positions your lower jaw in a way that prevents restriction at the back of your throat.

An oral apnoea appliance can improve your sleep quality in as little as one night. If you’re CPAP intolerant, you may be able to quit using the bulky and cumbersome machine straightaway. But first, you need to work with a dentist who is qualified to fit and deliver such sleep and snoring aids.

Do I Have a Sleeping Disorder or Apnoea?

Snoring may be obvious, but sleep apnoea is not always as evident. Some of the symptoms that you may be experiencing include

  • Chronic fatigue or depression
  • Memory problems
  • Migraine headaches
  • Bruxism (teeth clenching and grinding)
  • Low libido
  • Weight gain

Although Dr Meng cannot diagnose a sleeping disorder, she can screen for it and recommend an evaluation with the proper medical professional. If you suspect that sleep apnoea may be a concern, we are happy to work with your primary care physician or pulmonologist to determine the proper course of treatment.
