If you tuned in to our last episode,  I talked about the 7 reasons why oral appliances may be a good option for those of you with obstructive sleep apnea, and in today’s episode, we’re going to talk about the 8 reason why you may not want to consider oral appliances for sleep apnea.

  1. It’s challenging to find a qualified dentist for every patient

  2. It can change your bite

  3. It’s much more expensive than CPAP

  4. It can be lost or damaged

  5. If you have severe sleep apnea

  6. If you're severely overweight

  7. If your nose is stuffy

  8. Sometimes, the tongue may not move forward with jaw movement.

Plus two more bonus reasons.
