Research has consistently shown that oral appliance therapy can be as effective as CPAP for treating obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). So why depend on an electrical socket to help you get a good night’s sleep when a lightweight device can keep your airway open so you can get the oxygen you need?

Your quiz will open in a new tab/window.

Here at the Laguna Hills Center for Sleep Apnea & CPAP Intolerance, Dr. Ann Abdulla helps patients from across Orange County with two main types of appliance:

  • A mandibular advancement device (MAD) holds your lower jaw slightly forward while you sleep, keeping your tongue and the soft tissues around the top of your throat from restricting your breathing.
  • A tongue retaining device (TRD) keeps your tongue from falling back and blocking your airway.

The devices are custom-fit to your mouth, FDA-approved – and covered by most PPOs and Medicare.

How Do Dental Appliances for Sleep Apnea Work?

“Nothing Worked. Then I Found Dr. Abdulla!”

We have seen many patients who had tried oral appliance therapy before, with underwhelming results. But skeptics have turned to believers upon trying our expertly fit devices and comprehensive supportive care.

I have had an ongoing battle with sleep apnea and snoring. I have had sleep tests, CPAP machines, oral devices custom made…nothing worked. Then I found Dr. Abdulla! I was skeptical, but I am so happy I gave her a chance. My device worked the first night I wore it. I woke up rested for the first time in I don’t know how long!!! !

Accurate Fit + Positioning = Better Results

Two things determine how effective oral appliance therapy will be, and they depend a bit on each other. One is whether the patient regularly wears it to sleep. The other is the fit and positioning.

Every one of our appliances is custom fit to the patient’s mouth with the most extreme precision possible. Many of the devices – like the plastic-free Panthera appliance – are created with CAD-CAM (computer-assisted design/computer-assisted manufacture) technology, which ensures an accurate fit.

A Closer Look at an Oral Appliance for Snoring & Sleep Apnea

More, Dr. Abdulla also uses a computerized pharyngometer to measure the size of the oral/pharyngeal passageway – something that helps ensure proper positioning of the appliance. By adjusting how the upper and lower jaws sit in relation to each other, we can help make the airway larger.

A better fit and better positioning mean a better experience for you.

If I used that miserable sleep apnea. Machine (CPAP) for 4 hours a night, I was lucky. Now I use Dr. Abdulla’s oral device all night, every night. The sleep apnea is now history. I couldn’t be happier.
