An Osseo-Restoration Appliance Can Help Improve Your Sleep

sleep apnea

If you're one of the millions of people who suffer from sleep apnea, you know how disruptive it can be to your life. A treatment option growing in popularity is the use of Osseo-Restoration Appliances. These devices are custom-made to fit your mouth and help open up your airway while you sleep, improving your quality of sleep and reducing the number of episodes of apnea. If you're considering this treatment option, here are some things that may be helpful. 

What Is an Osseo-Restoration Appliance?

An Osseo-Restoration Appliance (ORA) is a custom-made device to fit your mouth. It works by holding your tongue and jaw in a forward position, which opens up your airway and helps to prevent sleep apnea.

How Does the ORA Work to Improve Sleep?

The ORA stimulates remodeling of the entire nasomaxillary complex (midface). This has the effect of opening the airway at all levels. Patients consistently report that while in the Osseo-Restoration Appliance, they can breathe better through the nose and experience reduced snoring and better sleep. Dr. Buck has many cases of his patients being able to stop using CPAP for sleep. The ORA helps reduce the number of episodes of apnea, which can improve your overall quality of sleep. In addition, the ORA can also help to reduce snoring.

Benefits of Using an Osseo-Restoration Appliance

  1. You can achieve better sleep quality.
  2. Osseo-Restoration Appliances seem to be more effective in reducing apnea episodes when compared to CPAP machines.
  3. Osseo-Restoration Appliances are less likely to cause side effects than other kinds of sleep apnea treatments. Some people who use CPAP machines report feeling claustrophobic or having a hard time getting used to wearing a mask over their face.

Who Can Benefit From Using an ORA?

If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea, you may be a good candidate for treatment with an Osseo-Restoration Appliance. Osseo-Restoration Appliances are sometimes used to treat people who snore loudly but don't have sleep apnea.

Epigenetic Orthodontics

Epigenetic Orthodontics can open and protect the airway enhancing breathing both during sleep and awake activities.

Dr. Buck practices a philosophy that integrates airway into all diagnosis and treatments. Dentistry has traditionally not considered the airway when planning dental treatments. Fortunately, today there is a rapidly growing movement that now recognizes how dentistry can have an impact on the airway which affects breathing during sleep. If dental treatments, including TMJ, orthopedic and orthodontics are well planned the result can be that the airway is protected or even enhanced. There is a clear link between underdeveloped and retruded jaws together with narrow dental arches that puts a patient at risk for sleep breathing disorders.
