Sleep apnea is when you temporarily stop breathing throughout your sleep. Several people suffering from this condition usually stop breathing for 10 to 20 seconds at a time. This could happen many times while you sleep, and the worst part is, sometimes it could last for a minute or longer. With each Apnea, the blood oxygen usually drops.

Sleep apnea snore guards perform by moving the jaw forward, where it expands the size of the upper airway, hence, decreasing the air that causes sleep apnea and snoring. Some sleep apnea patients use the snore guards or oral appliances experience a better sleep. There are also patients who endure moving teeth after continued use.
