Snore or Sleep Apnea Appliance
Snoring is the sound produced when air is obstructed in the back of the throat by loose tissue. In some cases the sound may be soft, but in other cases, it can be loud and unpleasant. Snoring during sleep can also be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea. (OSA) This is when you stop breathing during sleep. This can happen many times an hour during sleep. This can impact one’s life daily form simply being tired or moody to high blood pressure and risk of accidents
Dental appliances can help by moving the lower jaw forward to open the passage of air. They are custom fitted upper and lower mouth pieces and can be manipulated rather easily to move the jaw more or less forward. Ask your dentist if you are a candidate for this appliance.
