Modern dental practices can help address these concerns using various techniques, and we’ll be happy to walk you through our options when you visit our team. If you’re struggling with snoring and sleep apnea, book an appointment at Fairlawn Dental Centre and find out how we can help today!
Why Are Snoring & Sleep Apnea Dental Issues?
So why are snoring and sleep apnea considered dental problems? When you enter deep sleep, the muscles at the back of your throat loosen, obstructing the airways you use to breathe while you sleep.
When these muscles loosen, you may snore or develop sleep apnea, a condition that repeatedly starts and stops your breathing while you sleep. Both of these conditions affect the quality of sleep you have and could lead to other symptoms like:
- Gasping while sleeping
- Morning headaches
- Poor concentration
- Memory loss
- High blood pressure
If you’re struggling with these symptoms, we could help by recommending an oral appliance.
How an Oral Appliance Can Help
In the past, issues like sleep apnea were traditionally treated using a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device. These devices can help regulate your breathing by pushing air through your nose via a mask you wear while sleeping.
However, some patients believe CPAP machines to be cumbersome, loud, and inconvenient.
As an alternative, we could recommend a custom oral appliance specifically to support your breathing habits while you sleep. These mouthpieces help push your tongue and jaw forward, opening your airways.
Sleep in Comfort
Please call our team if you’re struggling with snoring or sleep apnea. We can help by personalizing a strategy that suits your needs and the needs of everyone who may sleep around you.
