If you or a loved one snores, you are likely aware that snoring often accompanies fitful sleep.  Severe snoring may also be a sign of a more serious problem like sleep apnea.  Sleep apnea occurs when an individual stops breathing for an extended period of time during sleep.  Snoring happens wen the soft palate relaxes to the point of cutting off the airway.  Snore appliances are designed to comfortable hold the airway open during sleep.  Riverwalk Dental Spa is excited to offer an alternative to patients that cannot tolerate wearing theri CPAP device.  Our oral appliance options include the SomnoDent MASTM and the SUAD™ device. To schedule your consultation with Dr. Carrie Sessom and learn more about oral appliance therapy, please contact our office at 918-392-7654.

The SomnoDent MASTM is a Mandibular Advancement Splint (MAS) that treats snoring and mild to moderate OSA (obstructive sleep apnea) by moving the lower jaw forward slightly. This forward movement tightens the soft tissue and muscles of the upper airway, which prevents obstruction of the airway while you sleep. The tightening created by the device also prevents the tissues of the upper airway from vibrating as air passes over them – the most common cause of loud snoring.

The SomnoDent MASTM is a custom-made device consisting of upper and lower dental plates with a unique patented fin-coupling component, which allows normal mouth opening and closing. The device is adjustable, which improves the efficacy and comfort level of treatment, as the jaw is moved only as far as is required to alleviate the condition.

The SUAD™ Device is a premium dental sleep appliance developed for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. It is an effective, comfortable, and durable alternative to CPAP therapy or corrective surgery. By simply wearing the SUAD™ Device while sleeping, your lower jaw (mandible) will be moved forward into a comfortable position, allowing relaxation of the tissues at the back of your throat and ensuring the base of your tongue does not collapse and block your airway, giving you a safe and soundless sleep.
