Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. Approximately 25 million adults in the U.S. have obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), which can cause them to stop breathing hundreds of times a night anywhere from a few seconds to more than a minute.
Treatment options for sleep apnea vary and may be as simple as wearing a dental appliance during sleep. A custom-made dental appliance may be your best treatment to reposition your jaw and tongue to improve airflow.
