Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder that interrupts a person's breathing while they sleep. Some individuals can even stop breathing entirely for short times during their sleep. Most cases of sleep apnea are remedied with machines that help keep the sleeping person breathing normally by tubes in the nose, or a face mask. The EMA is a less invasive apnea dental appliance and is a more comfortable option.
