Is there an alternative treatment for snoring and sleep apnea?

There is! ApneaGuard Oral Appliance Therapy is the perfect non-invasive, no-mask, CPAP alternative for mild to moderate sleep apnea, or for those who cannot tolerate CPAP therapy.

What is Oral Appliance Therapy?

The ApneaGuard Oral Appliance fits over the upper and lower teeth like a night guard or retainer, and is worn during sleep. It is recommended by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine (AASM) andhas been shown to be highly effective in treating sleep apnea and snoring. In fact, 91% of patients reported improvement in their sleep quality while wearing ApneaGuard.


How does Oral Appliance Therapy Work?

ApneaGuard is worn during sleep to provide Continuous Open Airway Therapy (COAT) by moving the lower jaw slightly forward. This movement tightens the soft tissue and muscles of the upper airway, which prevents obstructive apneas while you sleep.

What are the benefits of Oral Appliance Therapy?

  • Non-invasive treatment for mild to moderate sleep apnea.
  • Alternative to CPAP therapy if you are not able to tolerate your CPAP therapy.
