There have been many advancements in the world of sleep dentistry, and continue to be. Many people suffer from snoring and sleep apnea to the point that it is detrimental to themselves (or their spouse!). We have done much research and have found that the Klearway device can offer some relief. Klearway is an oral appliance that is used to treat mild to moderate forms of sleep apnea. It is similar to a sports mouth guard or an orthodontic retainer. It is custom fit for each patient and fits over the upper and lower teeth. The device is easy to place and remove, easy to clean, and convenient for travel.
The research shows that oral devices are generally effective in providing relief in 75% of patients. For patients with moderate sleep apnea, these devices have been shown to be 60% effective, and those with severe sleep apnea, there is a 40% effectiveness rate. For many, oral appliances, such as Klearway, prevent the need for surgery, CPAP, or medication.
