Occlusal Splints, Obstructive Sleep Apnea/Anti-Snoring, Palate Lifting

Definition : Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)/anti-snoring occlusal splints designed for placing inside the mouth for use while a patient sleeps. These devices help avoid inspiratory noise produced by the vibration of the pharyngeal soft tissues (i.e., snoring) by lifting the soft palate. These splints usually consist of prefabricated or custom-made plastic devices that are fitted in the mouth. They position and stabilize the soft palate and, occasionally, the uvula. These devices are intended for patients with breathing problems that cause OSA and/or snoring; they are usually positioned in dental offices.
