    I have obstructive sleep apena and I just got a

    snore guard from the dentist for 350.00.

    What it does is push your bottom jaw forward so your tongue doesnt block your airway when you sleep.

    I have 2 sleep studies as well. and not interested in the cpap crap.

    Seems to be the money racket of the 2000's.

    The sleep Dr. suggested his dentist he uses..
    ha ha ..they charge a 1.00 consultation and then the

    snore guard starts...at $800.00.


    fat chance

    anyway a good dental college can do them too for a lot less.

    that works with braces too.


    one more thing... I dont drool with mine and can keep it on all nite long

    maybe you need to have yours re ajusted,


    SO far I have used my snore guard for a week( I just got it last week ) and it works great.

    Nanjee, what is the name of your device? Can you move your jaw from side to side and up and down a bit? In the province I live in there is only one place you can get these and they only offer one kind it is called the TAP. I would like to have more options. The drooling thing is apparently very common but is supposed to subside after a while. LOL I bet you don't want anyone watching you sleep, huh?

    Wildflower, have you, or are you having another sleep study done with your snore thingy? From what I have read it is very important to make sure it is stopping the apnea and not just the snoring. They recommend having another study done with the appliance in. I sure hope it has helped your apnea!
