Our caring dentists and dental team understand that many patients (and their partners) find snoring to be a common nighttime annoyance. Snoring is typically caused by obstructions in the airway, such as collapsing tissues in the throat, large tonsils, or your tongue rolling back in your throat. As your airway muscles relax during sleep, these tissues can narrow the upper airway and result in snoring.
To ensure that you and your loved ones can sleep peacefully through the night, our dentists provides treatment for snoring. Our most common snoring treatment is oral appliance therapy. We will provide you with a custom-made oral appliance, which you wear only while you sleep. The snoring appliance works by ensuring that your airway stays open and free of obstructions while you sleep. This may be accomplished by preventing the tongue from rolling back or by holding your jaw in a position that prevents the airway tissues from collapsing. We will make certain that your custom snoring appliance fits effectively to minimize snoring and comfortably to allow you to sleep peacefully.
If you snore frequently, we encourage you to contact our office today to learn more about snoring treatment and to schedule your next visit with our dentists. We are eager to care for you!
