All snore guards are not created equal.
Some are designed as a two piece appliance with the goal of advancing the lower jaw to create a more open airway space in the back of the mouth. This does work some of the time, but can also create TMJ problems. The Full Breath Snore Appliance is designed as a single upper appliance that pushes the back of the tongue down to create a larger airway space. In addition, the Full Breath Appliance is one of the only snore appliances that can be adapted to be used in conjunction with oxygen for those patients that are C-PAP intolerant. Dr. Hopkins will be happy to work with you, as well as your sleep specialists, to obtain the best result for you.
