Can We Help with Snoring? Yes, We Can!
Posted on 6/23/2018 by Dr. Brandon Cooley
The National Sleep Foundation says that 30% - 50% of the population in the United States snore. Usually this is caused by overall poor oral health. Understanding how Snoring Occurs Snoring happens when your nose and throat tissues vibrate causing a hoarse or harsh sound. This is because the tissues partially obstruct your breathing. Treating Your Snoring Problem Using an oral appliance is one of the best ways to treat snoring. This is a plastic device that helps keep your breathing passages open while you're asleep. It works by repositioning your jaw and stabilizing your tongue. You'll find that this works better than the traditionally prescribed CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure device) machine which is a mask that's connected to a tube that gently blows pressurized air through your airways so your throat is kept open while you sleep. This is an invasive, noisy way of treating the issue. While it does work, it's not as efficient as an oral remedy. Along with an oral appliance your dentist may have some other suggestions that can help with your sleep hygiene. You may need to lose weight, avoid sleeping on your back, eliminate the use of sedatives, and avoid consuming alcohol at night. Benefits of Oral Appliance Therapy There are many benefits to using oral appliance therapy. When you sleep better at night you're more alert during the day, you can concentrate better, and you're also more emotionally stable. Fortunately, these are easily attainable results since your oral appliance is comfortable to wear. It's also small and portable so you can easily travel with it, unlike the CPAP machine which is big and bulky. Our office offers comprehensive quality dental care, which includes helping you with your snoring issues. Give us a call today so we can help you sleep better tonight....
