Snoring Appliances

Getting a whole night of sleep is essential to your overall health. Being well-rested helps you to feel good and to function at your best. One of the most common problems that can affect the quality of your sleep is snoring. According to statistics, about 90 million individuals in the United States snore while they sleep. For about half of these people, the problem is simply snoring, and the others may be afflicted with a severe disorder known as sleep apnea. Therefore, before prescribing any type of treatment,  we must determine whether the problem is sleep apnea or “simple” snoring.

If the issue is simply snoring, and you are known as a primary snorer, then an oral appliance can help you and any of your roommates enjoy a quieter and more comfortable sleep. A custom fabricated oral appliance to address snoring fits somewhat like a sports mouthguard or orthodontic retainer and is only worn while you sleep. As a removable and non-invasive treatment for snoring, your appliance slightly repositions your jaw to allow for a less restricted airflow to promote a quieter and more restful sleep.
