Simply put, snoring is noisy breathing during sleep. It affects people of all ages and genders. It often results in interrupted sleep, poor daytime function, and an increased risk of heart disease.
Snoring should not be ignored. It can indicate a potentially life-threatening condition called sleep apnea, which requires medical attention.
Snore guards should be custom made to fit over your natural teeth. When fit properly, snore guards will cause the lower jaw to slightly protrude, which will improve your airflow while sleeping and eliminate your snoring.
Dentists are trained in oral anatomy, physiology, and sleep medicine. They can evaluate the cause of your snoring and prescribe an appliance suited for your needs. Many medical insurance plans provide benefits for sleep apnea appliances.
