Snoring can be annoying to you partner, disrupt you sleep or even be a symptom of a form of sleep apnea. Relaxed and collapsed airways produce soft tissue vibration while asleep and cause snoring.
A simple, custom made appliance, comfortably repositions you jaw to help keep your airways open when you sleep. The result is no snoring and better night time breathing.
Clinical research studies have shown that these types of dentist fabricated oral devices have demonstrated initial snoring prevention success rates of between 70 to 100% * , while invasive soft tissue surgical procedures have only shown a moderate success rate of 20-40%**
A more serious condition resulting from collapsed airways during sleep is known as sleep apnea and is potentially life threatening. Sleep apnea is a condition where the collapsed airways actually cause the individual to stop breathing sometimes as long as 20 – 30 seconds. This can result in disruptive sleep, permanent brain damage, and death. The most severe cases are treated with a breathing mask (CPAP) which while essential are uncomfortable and bulky. Individuals who suffer from mild and moderate sleep apnea can be fitted with custom appliances which allow normal breathing during sleep and eliminate the need for the breathing mask.
While you may need a sleep study to confirm your specific diagnosis, sleep apnea is a serious condition.
