Solving Your Snore!
Snoring is a very common problem that can happen at any age, which affects approximately 30-50% of Americans. Many people do not think of going to the dentist as their first solution. However, there are devices that your dentist can provide to help you stop snoring. These devices work by adjusting your lower jaw and tongue forward to help open the airway. In some cases, sleep apnea could be the problem and these devices may not suffice. Sleep Apnea is estimated to happen to everyone 1 in 5 women and 1 in 3 men. A CPAP machine is usually recommended to help solve this problem. The best way to diagnose sleep problems is to visit a sleep clinic for a night. They will be able to uncover how many apneic episodes happen throughout your sleep. The number may indicate that an intra oral device is your solution!
