Snoring can be a nuisance for both you and your partner. It can cause interrupted sleep and lead to daytime fatigue and lapses in cognitive functions. There are a number of snoring treatments available, depending on the underlying cause.
Snoring occurs when the flow of air is obstructed as you breathe. This can happen if your throat or nasal passages are blocked or if the muscles in your throat relax too much. Obesity, smoking and alcohol use can contribute to this.
There are a number of treatments that can help to reduce or eliminate this habit. If snoring is due to muscle relaxation, then special exercises or devices that keep the airway open, such as an oral appliance, may be recommended. These devices are worn while you sleep, and they work by holding the tongue or jaw in place to prevent the muscles in your oral passageway from relaxing. Our oral appliances are custom made by our prosthodontist to keep you comfortable and relaxed.
If you snore regularly, it is important to talk to our prosthodontist to find out the underlying cause and get appropriate treatment. Untreated snoring can lead to other health problems, such as sleep apnea, which is a serious condition that can increase your risk for high blood pressure, heart disease and stroke. Therefore, it is important to get snoring treatment to avoid these potential complications.
