Snoring can sometimes be caused by soft tissue collapsing at the back of the throat. What snoring and sleep apnea devices do is move your jaws forward so you can breathe comfortably while you sleep.
Our Hudsonville dentists will be able to create a sleep apnea mouth guard to stop snoring and episodes where you stop breathing.
If you recognize any of the signs of sleep apnea (in you or a partner) call our office as soon as possible.
Sleep apnea is a serious medical condition that can stop a person from breathing up to hundreds of times a night.
Sleep apnea symptoms include:
- Loud snoring
- Episodes where you stop breathing during sleep
- Headaches upon waking
- Sore throat or dry mouth upon waking
- Extreme sleepiness during the day
- Difficulty paying attention
Not only does sleep apnea disrupt sleep, but it can deprive your body of oxygen. In fact, many people wake up after a sleep apnea episode gasping for air. However, they go back to sleep so quickly afterwards that they have no memory of it. Our sleep apnea dentists create a comfortable oral device that will help you get a good night’s rest.
