The dentist examines your teeth and mouth to determine if you are a good candidate for a custom oral appliance. The dentist looks at:
position of your jaw
jaw stiffness and tenderness
evidence of teeth grinding (bruxism)
number of teeth you have
condition of your teeth and gums
presence of extensive restorations (e.g. crowns, bridges, implants, veneers)
size of your tongue and other tissues in the back of your throat
While many successful oral appliance users do not fall within these guidelines, the more criteria a patient meets, the more successful oral therapy should be.
