How do oral appliances work?

When you sleep, the appliance holds your jaw and soft throat tissues in a position that allows for easier breathing.

Some appliances move your jaw forward slightly to increase the amount of airway space. Others stabilize your jaw and prevent it from falling back towards your throat.

For people without teeth, appliances can be used to shift your tongue forward while you sleep, which also increases airway space.
