Obstructive sleep apnea is a debilitating sleep-related breathing disorder. During sleep, the body's muscles relax causing the soft tissue of the airway to collapse, obstructing the airway. The body reacts to the closure of the airway by disrupting deep sleep enough to start breathing again.

 

Untreated OSA can lead to heart disease, stroke, and excessive daytime sleepiness. Sleep apnea not only adversely affects the sleep quality of the snorer’s bed partner, but also diminishes the overall quality of life.

Various aspects of sleep apnea

The American Academy of Sleep Medicine now recommends oral appliances such as EMA to treat snoring and sleep apnea. Oral appliances fit entirely inside the mouth, are portable, do not use electricity or make noise that would bother a sleeping partner, and allow the wearer to change sleep positions.

 

EMA allows you to talk and drink freely. It's completely free of metal and has latex-free EMA elastic straps. Finally, you can change the EMA elastic straps yourself, so you don't have to visit the dentist every time to change them.
