HOW DOES IT WORK?
Mandibular Advancement is a well accepted and proven method of maintaining an open airway. When you sleep your airway is relaxed and the soft tissues are very mobile, the movement of air when inhaling and exhaling causes the soft floppy tissues to vibrate, that vibration you hear as the familiar grating snoring sound. The sound that robs your partner of quality sleep and raises your risk of many more complex conditions such as stroke, diabetes, heart attack and many inhibits your ability to fight cancer.
By pushing the lower jaw forward this introduces a slight tension in the soft relaxed tissues which make them less likely to vibrate when turbulent air passes. Hey presto, no vibration, no noise, snoring is cancelled. This is great news for your long suffering partner, but even better news for you, because medical evidence now proves you are protecting yourself from the increased risk of stroke, heart attack, cancer, diabetes and many other associated conditions.
USING THIS MOUTHPIECE WITH OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNEA
A question commonly asked is whether or not this mouthpiece can be used to treat sleep apnea. This product, or any other mandibular advancement device, should not be used by anyone who has been diagnosed with central sleep apnea.
However, in some instances, the SleepTight may be used to treat mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea in adults while under the supervision of a doctor. Only a few self-fitted mouthpiece manufacturers currently make this claim, SleepTight being one of them.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued the following statement regarding the SleepTight:
Section: 5.2 Device Indications for Use- 807.92(a) (4)
“The Sleep Tight Mouthpiece (STM) is an intraoral mandibular advancement device intended to be used for the treatment of snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea in adults.”
