Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance

A custom-fit device to relieve snoring and sleep apnea

Most people call it a mouthguard, but it’s a whole lot different than those worn by athletes to protect their teeth, or the ones used for bruxism (teeth grinding). BlueSleep provides different types of custom-fabricated Mandibular Advancement Devices that keep your lower jaw slightly forward, and your airway open, while you sleep. This prevents most snoring and sleep apnea, allowing you (and your bed partner) to have a good night’s rest, avoid health problems and have more stamina when you’re awake.

A Proven Treatment

Our own research* shows that 70% of patients using a Mandibular Advancement Device had significant improvement in their sleep apnea, and in most cases snoring significantly decreased or disappeared.​

What our patients say

One of our patients from Tech Insider created a 5-min video with nearly two million views to share his experience about sleep apnea. Don’t fear the beard. Check it out!

You’ve got a choice

Not one size or type of device fits all. BlueSleep recommends the best, FDA-approved devices and helps you adjust or “titrate” them, so you get the right fit for comfort, affordability, and effectiveness.

Oral Appliances Q&A

Is an oral device right for you?

Your gum and teeth health are important factors. You must have at least one healthy molar on each side of the upper and lower jaw. Your gums must be in good shape (no excessive swelling, bleeding or pain,) and you must be able to open your mouth without pain in the jaw joint. (If you have pain from grinding your teeth, an oral device will protect them.) You can’t get a device during treatment with invisaligns, braces, or dental implants, or other major dental work. However, you can get an oral device after completing the dental work.

Does insurance cover oral devices?

BlueSleep is in network with medical insurance. Our Billing Team contacts your insurance company to get a pre-approval for treatment and will inform you of any copays, coinsurance or deductibles required by your contract. Insurance requires a positive test for sleep apnea to pay for an oral device. We’ve made testing easy and affordable with a 3-night, home sleep test covered by insurance.

How to get an oral device?

Make an appointment with a BlueSleep specialist. Be sure to fill out the questionnaire before your appointment. Take a 3-night home sleep test. If the results are positive, we’ll recommend an oral device (or CPAP). Our dentist will scan your teeth or send you a do-it-yourself teeth mold. Once your device arrives, we’ll help you adjust your device till it feels right.
