Snoring Treatment

Preventive Care
Are you tired, stressed out, and moody because of interrupted sleep? Snoring can interrupt deep sleep that makes people feel rested. Non-surgical dental appliances have proven more effective than surgery for many patients who snore.

What’s the Problem?

Snoring is caused by blocked air passages. The air forces its way through, creating the noisy vibrations we know as snoring. Many factors may contribute to airway blockage, from the size of passages and oral or airway structures, to swelling of passageways or position of the tongue. Disrupted deep sleep can affect mood, health, and cause daytime sleepiness. The added stress and fatigue can cause lack of concentration, loss of memory, and accidents in the workplace or while driving. The patient’s snores can disturb a sleeping partner’s rest, too.

What’s the Solution?

A custom snoreguard works by repositioning the jaw and tongue to allow for unobstructed airflow. The snoreguard is a custom-made appliance, similar to an athletic mouthguard, that the patient wears comfortably throughout the night. Most people have little trouble adjusting to the appliance and find immediate relief.

If your sleeping partner says you snore while asleep, or if you experience daytime sleepiness, contact us for a consultation. A sleep apnea device may improve your quality of life. It’s just another way your dentist can help you smile.
