Dental Snoring Solutions
Let’s Talk about Snoring!
Millions of Americans live with snoring, believing it can’t be corrected. If you or your family suffer with snoring, our team offers a dental device that addresses the causes of snoring, so that you can experience more restful sleep.
Snoring is caused by partially obstructed airflow, causing the soft tissue at the back of your throat to vibrate and create noise. Snoring can be a sign that your body is struggling to get proper air flow during sleep. For your most restful sleep and optimum daily health, let us show you what we can do to keep your upper airway open for proper airflow.
While you’re sleeping your lower jaw and tongue tend to relax back toward your throat, especially if you’re lying on your back. When this fall back happens, your upper airway becomes partially blocked causing you to snore.
Modern dentistry has invented breakthrough dental devices to address upper airway obstruction. The devices are customized for each individual, and are similar in design to athletic mouth guards.The snoring treatment goal is to keep your upper airway 100% open while you sleep.
Advanced Dental Center recommends the Prosomnus Sleep Apnea Device designed to keep your lower jaw in a forward position, without restricting your tongue. We custom fit the device to your mouth and answer all your questions. For more information, you can visit their website Prosomnus.com.
Dental device advantages compared to other choices like a CPAP machine:
- Your dental device requires no invasive procedures or bulky equipment.
- Your dental device is custom-made. Most people experience an easy, short adjustment period and continue to use it.
- Your dental device is convenient for travel.
Consider lifestyle changes to stop snoring:
- Avoid sleeping on your back.
- Avoid caffeine and alcohol 4 hours before bed.
- Keep a routine daily bedtime schedule.
- Losing weight often reduces snoring.
Sleep Apnea is a more severe condition where your upper airway is completely obstructed from any airflow for brief, intermittent time periods. Sleep Apnea can be treated with dental devices. Your primary care physician can recommend further tests for a definitive diagnosis.
