Snoring occurs when your respiratory tracts are narrow or partially obstructed. This can occur for several reasons such as: a thick or low palate, excess adipose (fat) tissue in the throat, and/or abnormal tonsils. In these situations, a sound is generated when the air passes through the pharynx and vibrates through these vocal cords. In the case of respiration that is partially obstructed, it is the mostly this snoring sound that creates discomfort for the individual that is snoring along with those around him/her.
To help you reduce your snoring, a dental appliance called denture can be recommended and made for you. This solution is offered in the office and can help clear your respiratory tracts to help the air pass through without causing vibrations leading to snoring. This appliance resembles a mouthguard that is used when playing sports. It is composed of two trays that are worn while you are asleep. It creates a slight force to push the mandible (lower jaw) forward, tongue and any other oral structures that can cause respiratory obstruction.
Only a few steps are necessary to benefit from this solution:
By clearing your respiratory tracts it will help not only with snoring but also with the quality of sleep and breathing you get during the night.
The appliance allows a solution for most snoring cases without any modifications to your dental anatomy through surgery.
The appliances offered at the dental office offer better benefits when compared to over-the-counter products and/or appliances, as they are custom-made. Custom-made mouth appliances will not have any consequences on the oral cavity.
Individuals that snore sometimes are not affected by their snoring however; their spouses are deeply affected. By choosing this appliance not only will you sleep and breathe better but so will you spouse!
