Snoring and Sleep Apnea

Snoring

Snoring is quite a common occurrence, and we offer snoring treatment options for our patients. Snoring is often a nuisance and can even be a sign of a more serious problem such as obstructive sleep apnea.

If your snoring doesn’t require medical intervention, but is relatively mild, we can give you a plastic dental appliance to help with it. You would wear this device in your mouth at night, and it will prevent the jaw and tongue from falling back into the air passages. That will keep your airway more open so you can breathe personally and regularly all night.

Sleep Apnea

Sleep apnea obstructs your sleep cycles by causing pauses in your breathing. Each time your breathing gets interrupted, your body is forced out of deep sleep and into a lighter sleep cycle in order to breathe. This can happen hundreds of times a night without you even realizing it is occurring. This can lead to serious, even deadly health risks, such as heart attack, stroke, and deadly car accidents.

Fortunately, with proper treatment most of the risks can be avoided. Your doctor may prescribe CPAP, a pump and mask arrangement you have to wear at night, but many people benefit from an oral appliance, which is comfortable and easy to use.
