Our caring dentist and 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 the tongue rolling back in the throat. As 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 dentist addresses the root causes when recommending a snoring treatment. Our most common snoring treatment is an oral appliance therapy. For this treatment, we will provide you with an advanced, custom-made oral appliance which you wear while you sleep or during the day as needed. This appliance works in two ways: it ensures that your airway stays open and free of obstructions while you sleep and it also activates your body’s stem cells to encourage growth in the bony structures surrounding your airway, which helps eliminate the need for any appliances in the future. We will make certain that your custom appliance fits effectively and comfortably to minimize snoring and allow you to sleep peacefully.
If you snore frequently, we encourage you to contact our office today to learn more about snoring treatment and schedule your next visit with our dentist. We are eager to care for you!
