A Custom Mouthguard Gives You a Comfortable CPAP Alternative

Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when your airway becomes blocked during sleep, often by your tongue or muscles and tissues in your throat. The blockage causes you to wake frequently during the night as you struggle to breathe. Treatment involves keeping your airway open with either a mouthguard or a CPAP machine.

A CPAP uses a stream of air to keep your airway open, which can leave you with a dry mouth and throat. A mouthguard eases your jaw into a position that keeps your airway open. A mouthguard is:

  • Discreet – A mouthguard slips easily into your mouth. You won’t need to wear a face mask, and there is no noise from a motor to disturb you or your bed partner.
  • Simple to Use – You won’t need electricity, batteries, or distilled water with a mouthguard. So it’s easier to use when you’re traveling – or any time.
