Do You Snore?
Do you or someone you know snore? If so, you know how annoying and sleep-disturbing it can be. Dentistry At Somerset has helped dozens of patients stop their snoring problem and get their sleep back. If your quality of sleep is being negatively affected by a snoring problem, you should seek treatment immediately. Good quality sleep is essential for good overall health. Not seeking treatment could be detrimental to your overall quality of life.
When you come in the doctor will discuss your snoring problem with you and evaluate your condition. If your issue is snoring and not sleep apnea, our doctors may treat your snoring problem by supplying you or your spouse with a custom-made snore guard. These guards work much like an athletic mouthguard or an orthodontic retainer. The snore guard is worn while you sleep and helps to reduce or even eliminate snoring by adjusting the position of your jaw.
By adjusting your jaw position, your airway is less obstructed and more open, allowing air to move freely through your nose and mouth while you sleep. This openness also allows more air into your lungs and helps you sleep better and without interruption.
When you use one of our custom-fitted snore guards, you will snore less, sleep better, and allow your bed partner to sleep more peacefully. Let us help you increase your quality of life by offering you effective snoring solutions.
What can snoring indicate?
Many people do not realize that snoring is the number one symptom for sleep apnea. Just about everyone snores occasionally—even a baby or a pet may snore. However, many times snoring can be a sign of a much bigger health problem. Snoring can affect the quantity and quality of your sleep. Consequently, inadequate sleep can lead to daytime fatigue, irritability, weight gain, memory loss, acid reflux, headaches, and other serious health ramifications. In addition, if your snoring is so loud that your bed partner can’t sleep, both of you are not achieving the proper sleep and rest at night.
If you snore regularly and experience any of the symptoms above, you may have sleep apnea. Untreated sleep apnea can wreak havoc on your overall health.
