Sometimes, you don’t even know you’re snoring—but the people close to you do! Other times, you know you haven’t had a good night’s rest because you’re tired in the daytime. We can help.
Snoring is the vibrations of the soft palate and other tissues in the nose, mouth, and throat. It can be caused by weak throat muscles, an incorrectly positioned jaw, fat around your throat, or an obstructed nasal passageway. Snoring could also be a sign of a more serious condition. Obstructive sleep apnea causes pauses in breathing, or shallow or infrequent breathing while you’re sleeping. Each pause is called an apnea. Apneas last between ten seconds and one minute, and can happen five to thirty times every hour. Symptoms of sleep apnea include loud snoring, restless sleep, and feeling sleepy in the daytime.
We can treat snoring and sleep apnea with a custom-fit oral appliance that keeps your airways open. Some patients need only a simple oral appliance to see improvements. Other patients may need complementary therapies, including oral appliances, CPAP therapy, adjunctive surgery, or lifestyle changes.
A consultation with us will help find the best solution for you to get a better night’s sleep.
