I have UARS. I could not tolerate cpap and so my (regular) dentist fitted me with a jaw-advancement device. However, my teeth make themselves crooked to pull out of it so jaw regularly falls out of it (waking me up). Also I've given myself tmj as I clench like crazy to make my teeth fit into it. This has got to stop because I think I'm giving myself some ear problems (tinnitus, congestion) with the tmj! And therefore I am getting myself further and further from the possibility of getting myself on cpap (equalizing the pressure of cpap hurts that same ear....).
So I'm thinking of some other jaw-advancement devices. It seems like they're all bad on the jaw and teeth, though.
I searched around on the Internet but I'm not really finding pictures of or explanations of devices--does anyone have a recommended url?
When my dental device was working it was really nice to be able to breathe at night but I may just give up....sigh....I really really hate waking up every hour or so. And of course those are just the arousals I know about, not the ones I don't know about...
