Oral Fixation and Sleep Apnea

After I was diagnosed with sleep apnea, I started trying various oral devices. The first one was used for exercising the “smiling” muscles. I tried it for a couple of weeks and I didn’t see a lot of improvement. In the literature, it states that results may not occur for several months. Several months? I couldn’t wait that long. The second device worked by keeping the tongue forward using suction. I couldn’t get any sleep with that one and I looked like a big baby with a pacifier. So, I returned it. The third device did some good. It worked by keeping the lower jaw forward while I slept. However, I found that bacteria accumulated even when I cleaned it and it smelled and looked horrible. I eventually got rid of that one too.
