      I want to draw your attention to an update posted by @carol-alexander earlier today. Carol asks if anyone knows about a dental appliance to help with breathing. Her dentist recommended this.

      Went to my dentist today. He was telling me about a dental appliance to help with breathing. Does anyone know anything about this?

      My guess is that the dentist means a dental appliance to help with sleep apnea and snoring. My own dentist brought this up at my last appointment after I told him I had recently started on a continuous positive airway pressure device (CPAP). Dental appliances can help with sleep apnea, but only in certain cases, and they may not be as effective as a CPAP device. My sleep doctor told me I would not be a candidate for this type of appliance because of the shape of my jaw.

      Has anyone discussed this option with their dentist and/or sleep doctor? Do any of our members use a dental appliance to help with breathing? Share your answers in the comments below.
