What is obstructive sleep apnea?

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a form of sleep apnea caused by the soft tissues of the throat (soft palate, uvula, tonsils, tongue, etc) relaxing and narrowing the airway during sleep.  Obstructive sleep apnea is the most common form of sleep apnea and can be managed, with the recommendation of your physician, with a dental sleep apnea appliance.
