You didn’t get braces when you were younger. And now, you’re not happy with your mouth. Maybe your teeth are crowded or crooked, or you have an over- or under-bite, incorrect jaw positioning, or some other problem making your mouth less attractive and possibly even painful.

Do you have to live this way? I mean, don’t you have to be in middle school to get braces?

When someone has been diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), they have a few options for treatment. When the lower jaw relaxes while sleeping, the soft tissues in the throat move into the airway space.

One non-invasive treatment method that has proven successful time and time again is Oral Appliance Therapy (OAT). While the person is wearing the oral appliance and sleeping, the tongue, lower jaw, soft palate, and uvula will be slightly pushed forward. This helps to prevent airway blockage, which means you will sleep much better and more soundly.
