Full Breath Appliance and Its Benefits

If you suffer from sleep apnea, snoring or poor health due to sleep problems then full breath appliances may be for you. Obstructive sleep apnea is a sleep disorder which causes breathing to start and stop repeatedly during sleep. It can be dangerous and should be addressed quickly.

Breath In / Breath Out

Full breath appliances are designed to gently keep your mouth open and keep the air passage free, providing the right amount of tongue restriction. Many patients resist CPAP treatment as it can be uncomfortable. Oral sleep appliances are a good alternative to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) to treat sleep-related problems. So should you invest in such oral sleep appliances? Definitely! They have a number of benefits.


Although the benefits vary according to design and from patient to patient, the general benefits include:

There are about 80 different types of dental devices available to help with sleep problems. However, these can be divided into two basic types of oral appliances:

  1. Mandibular Repositioners: These devices are normally customized and are anchored to all or part of the dental arch to induce protrusion of the mandible.
  2. Tongue-retaining Devices: These devices hold the tongue in a forward position without advancing the mandible.

Your sleep dentist will evaluate which oral appliance is best for your situation. Either way, the importance of quality sleep is unparalleled. If you don’t get enough sleep, your overall health can suffer. So ask your sleep specialist or doctor, invest in these beneficial and effective oral appliances, and fix your sleep now!
