Patients come from all over the world for OUR SERVICES
Our custom made Oral appliances (OA) that treat snoring, obstructive sleep apnea, and upper airway resistance syndrome are devices worn in the mouth similar to sports mouth guards or orthodontic retainers. They are made of plastic and fit partially or completely within the mouth. Currently there are over 40 different professional types of oral appliances available. Oral appliances may be used alone or in combination with other means of treating sleep apnea, such as weight management, surgery and CPAP.Make Appointment
Most parts of the process, including your initial appointment, sleep study, and the creation of a custom device, will be largely covered by most major medical insurance plans.
Oral therapy, like the services offered by Dr. Fox, are the first option for treating mild and moderate cases of sleep apnea.
In more severe cases, where a continuous positive airway pressure device (CPAP) is not effective, a dental device is an alternative option.

Mandibular Repositioning Appliances
How It Works
The device pushes the tongue and jaw forward. This makes the airway larger and improves airflow. The MRD (Mandibular Repositioning Device) also reduces the chance that tissue will collapse and narrow the airway when you breathe in. You wear the device every night to prevent breathing problems. Clinical studies show that custom-made MRDs are effective in treating mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea and snoring.Make An Appointment
