When it comes to snoring, a dentist sees things differently. With an extensive knowledge of the mouth, teeth alignment, and jaw structure, a dentist can provide an alternative solution
Snoring causes health problems and stress in relationships for over 65 million Americans. The snorer is tired and unable to perform to their full potential, while their loved ones suffer from the constant noise and sleeplessness.
What most people are not aware of, is that snoring is a symptom of a more serious sleep disorder.
As many as 32% of snorers experience temporary blockage of the airway during sleep and can actually stop breathing. This is called Obstructive Sleep Apnea, or OSA.
If this is left untreated, it can lead to high blood pressure, irregular heartbeat, coronary heart disease, and stroke.
We Can Help
Most sleep apnea symptoms are treated medically by a mask, tubes, a machine, and the requirement that you only sleep on your back. However, a dentist sees things differently.
With an extensive knowledge of the mouth, teeth alignment, and jaw structure, we can provide an alternative solution, in the form of a custom made and fitted mouth piece.
This provides a healthy airway during sleep that can greatly improve your quality of sleep, both for you and your loved ones.
