Sleep Apnea San RamonIf you’re interested in the benefits of a sleep apnea mouthguard, Dr. Carol Jin DDS, in San Ramon can assist. Many patients find CPAP machines intolerable and decide to let their diagnosed sleep apnea condition go untreated not realizing they may have other options. At our dental office, we can offer an alternative treatment with our simple and easy-to-use mouth guards for sleep apnea. Whether you are currently struggling with a bulky, uncomfortable CPAP machine or have only recently been diagnosed with OSA (obstructive sleep apnea), we can help. Dr. Jin specializes in oral appliance therapy and will work with you and your doctor to find the right solution for your specific condition.

Sleep Apnea Mouthguards

Dental appliances for sleep apnea are somewhat similar to a night guard or a bite guard. They are worn during the night and their primary function is to maintain an open airway. Unlike a CPAP, these mouth guards are comfortable, silent, easy to use, and easy to travel with.

Treatment Options

Your typical face mask CPAP machine is the most conventional treatment for OSA, but new technology has developed in the form of oral dental devices. These oral appliances are more portable and can be custom fitted to your mouth. There are many types of sleep apnea oral devices now on the market, but Dr. Jin particularly recommends these FDA-approved appliances:

  • TAP
  • SomnoMed
  • Adjustable Herbst
  • MicrO2

Fight Severe Sleep Apnea With TAP

The TAP oral device is highly effective, even for cases of severe sleep apnea. It keeps your airway open so that you can breathe properly bringing the lower jaw forward to prevent the airway from closing and causing a gap in your breathing. You will be able to get a better night’s sleep with much less snoring.

SonoMed – Adjustable Oral Appliances

The SonoMed OSA oral device allows your mouth to open and close rather than remaining in a fixed position all night. Dr. Jin can gradually advance the lower jaw to the exact point where your snoring and OSA are reduced to acceptable levels. This oral appliance allows you to open and shut your mouth and lips. So you can talk and drink liquids with it in place.

Adjustable Herbst

The Adjustable Herbst is a small oral device more appropriate for mild to moderate sleep apnea and snoring. With proper adjustment, you can talk or take medication while wearing it. Dr. Jin can help you determine which adjustable oral appliance is most suitable for your degree of sleep apnea.

MicrO2, Your Key To Comfort

MicrO2 is the smallest and most comfortable OSA oral device to date. This oral appliance leaves more space in your mouth as well as letting you easily open and shut your mouth while wearing it. Your comfort is always our priority.
