How can a dentist treat sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is caused by the base of the tongue falling back and blocking the airway. By making a mouth piece that moves the lower jaw forward, you can open the airway. In many cases, this can eliminate the need for a CPAP machine - less restrictive to the wearer, and less noisy for bedmates!
