Providing Exceptional Care for Patients With Sleep Apnea

The Dental Practice to Trust for Sleep Apnea Appliance Therapy

Sleep apnea is a disorder characterized by interrupted breathing during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is caused by the upper airway being blocked, either partially or completely, when the patient is sleeping. If you’ve been diagnosed with OSA, you’ll know how disruptive this condition can be for your rest and overall wellbeing. While a CPAP machine is commonly used as the preferred treatment for sleep apnea, it may not be your only option to treat your OSA.

At Poston Dental, we are proud to offer an alternative treatment for patients who have undergone a sleep test through their physician and received a diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnea: oral appliance therapy. Effective for individuals with mild to moderate cases of OSA, these appliances help to keep the airway open during sleep so that you can enjoy deeper, more restful nights and improved health overall.

Sleep Apnea Therapy Appliances

To treat OSA without a CPAP machine, special mandibular advancement devices (MADs) can be placed in the mouth to prevent the tongue from blocking the throat and advance the lower jaw forward. By doing so, these devices help keep the airway open during sleep.


Unlike storebought mouthguards or other devices, MADs require special fitting and are crafted specifically for each patient. This ensures that the device is properly fitted to deliver the ideal benefits for the user.

If you and your doctor agree that sleep apnea appliance therapy is a good option for you, you will then need to turn to a dentist (like Poston Dental) for a final decision on whether or not you are a good candidate for this treatment.

Adjusted for Optimal Care

Once your mandibular advancement device is made and you are shown how to use it, you may need to return for further adjustments to check that the appliance is working optimally.
