Snore Appliance Therapy uses the SUAD Device, a premium dental sleep appliance developed for the treatment of snoring and all levels of obstructive sleep apnea. It is an effective, comfortable, and durable alternative to CPAP therapy or corrective surgery.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) occurs when the airway becomes blocked during sleep. The blockage is usually caused by the soft tissue in the back of the mouth collapsing and closing during sleep. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine estimates that 18 million Americans have Obstructive Sleep Apnea, with 80 to 90% going undiagnosed and untreated.
