What is an oral appliance for sleep apnea?

Video Overview

What is an oral appliance for sleep apnea is just a dental device made by a certified dental lab that helps hold the lower jaw in a down and forward position. This one I have in my hands is made by SomnoMed or SomnoDent and when you wear the upper and lower appliance, the little wings on the lower appliance actually run into these wings on the upper appliance and when you have that in, it holds your lower jaw in a more protrusive or down and forward position. It actually opens up your airway so your tongue doesn't drop back into your throat.
