What Do People Snore?
Often, snoring is caused by weak muscles in the throat and tongue. Essentially, the tongue drops and hits the back of the throat, where it prevents normal airflow. The tongue and throat vibrate with each breath, resulting in snoring. In some cases, adenoids and large tonsils can also be the culprit.
What About Obstructive Sleep Apnea
This is a debilitating condition that makes interrupts your breathing throughout the night. Common symptoms at night include gasping for air, snoring, dry mouth, and insomnia. During the day, you may find yourself waking up with a headache and/or experiencing irritability, insomnia, and anxiety, among others.
Our Method Of Treating Sleep Apnea
If it’s determined that you have sleep apnea, we may recommend you wear a custom-made oral appliance at night. Known as a mandibular advancement device, it has the same appearance as a sports mouthguard. It’s effective because it moves the lower jaw ahead to keep the throat muscles snug, which means they can’t interfere with your breathing.
