Do you have a sleeping disorder like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)? It may be possible to manage your symptoms without a CPAP machine, thanks to our Clinton Township oral sleep appliances. These customized mouthpieces naturally open your airway to increase oxygen flow without added hoses or machines.
An oral sleep appliance must be fitted to your unique oral anatomy. Dr. Kachorek will design the mouthpiece to fit over both your upper and lower teeth. When worn, your appliance guides your mandible (lower jaw) forward, naturally preventing soft tissues from collapsing against one another at the back of your throat. Instead, your airway is opened and you’re able to breath without restriction.
Oral appliances work best in cases involving obstructive sleep apnea, due to their design. At Metro Detroit Sleep Solutions, we can help you undergo a convenient at-home sleep study in order to properly diagnose the type of sleeping disorder that you have. All of the data is read by a specialist and you’ll receive a formal diagnosis, the same as you would if you were visiting an offsite sleep center.
If your study reveals that you have OSA and an oral appliance is prescribed, then Dr. Kachorek can move forward with fitting you with a specialized mouthpiece.
Since your oral appliance is discreet, it won’t affect the person you share a bed with or prevent you from traveling out of town with friends. If you’ve suffered emotionally or physically because of sleep apnea, a sleep mouthpiece could change your life altogether.
Compared with other types of sleep disorder treatments, an oral sleep appliance includes benefits like:
