Sleep apnea oral appliances work by moving the jaw forward, which moves the tongue forward, increases the size of the upper airway, thus reducing the air resistance that leads to sleep apnea and snoring. A custom fitted oral appliance has a higher rate of success in treating OSA than similar devices that can be acquired from a pharmacy.

What Are Sleep Apnea Devices
How Annerley Dental Can Help You
Dr Basil has attended many courses by leaders in the field including Dr Steve Olmos, Dr Derek Mahoney, Dr Anne Marie Cole and Dr Harry Ball. He has personal experience in this field as he has been diagnosed with moderate sleep apnea and had nasal surgery to enhance his breathing.
Nasal breathing is a very important component in sleep apnea and Dr Basil will assess this and recommend appropriate X rays and referrals to ENT specialists for assessments prior to any device being made.
Included within your treatment:
Special customised snoring devices (based upon a thorough assessment involving a detailed history/questionnaire of your symptoms)
- X-rays to identify the underlying issue
- A visual assessment by Dr Basil
- Assessment of all the relevant reports on your sleep
- Consultation with your GP and sleep physician if required
