Mesa, Arizona – July 24, 2018 – As a leading group of sleep apnea specialists, Oral Sleep Medicine of Arizona has been helping patients with Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) to overcome the disease with effective treatment options. They offer oral appliances therapy for patients who prefer OAs to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), or who do not respond to CPAP.
When asked about their service, “Oral appliances help prevent the collapse of the tongue and soft tissues in the back of the throat, keeping the airway open during sleep and promoting adequate air intake. They may be used alone or in combination with other treatments for sleep-related breathing disorders, such as weight management, surgery or CPAP,” replied the spokesperson of Oral Sleep Medicine of Arizona, a leading group of sleep disorder doctors.
He also continued, “Oral appliance therapy involves the selection, fitting and use of a specially designed oral appliance that maintains an open, unobstructed airway in the throat when worn during sleep. Custom-made oral appliances are proven to be more effective than over-the-counter devices, which are not recommended as a screening tool or as a therapeutic option.”
Oral appliance therapy is applicable for patients with primary snoring or mild OSA, and who are not appropriate candidates for treatment with behavioral measures such as weight loss or sleep-position change. It is also for patients who refuse treatment or are not candidates for tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy, craniofacial operations, or tracheostomy.
When talking about the procedure for Oral Appliances Therapy, “Dentists with training in oral appliance therapy are familiar with the various designs of appliances and can help determine which is best suited for your specific needs. A board-certified sleep medicine physician must first provide a diagnosis and recommend the most effective treatment approach. A sleep disorder specialist in Mesa may then provide treatment and follow-up,” commented the spokesperson.
According to the spokesperson, the initial evaluation phase of oral appliance therapy can take several weeks or months to complete. This period includes examination, evaluation to determine the most appropriate oral appliance, fitting, maximizing adaptation of the appliance, and the function.
