| Do I have
to wear the appliance all night?
Yes. Studies indicate
that OSA is most severe during the early morning hours. It
is , therefore, very important for you to use the appliance
at all times during sleep. During the first few weeks while
you are adjusting to the appliance, it may be necessary to
start with shorter periods and gradually increase the length
of time until you can comfortably wear the appliance all night.
Many patients are able to wear the oral appliance on the first
night and experience no discomfort.
