Snoring is a very common symptom and complaint for people suffering from sleep apnea. Poor quality of sleep and the potential for spousal tension lead many sleep apnea suffers to explore their treatment options. In many cases, a snore guard can help improve breathing issues, reduce snoring and help people with minor to moderate sleep apnea to get a good night’s sleep.
It’s important to note that people suffering from a severe case of sleep apnea may require positive airway pressure treatments. This usually involves wearing a respiration device or CPAP mask when they sleep.
There are several different snore guard designs that can match your personal preference and needs. Prescription snore guards help maintain proper airflow and allow you to stay asleep while reducing snoring. Your dentist can help you find the snore guard that is most comfortable for you.
People with dentures often choose tongue stabilizing devices because they do not need to be attached to the teeth and can be used straight out of the box.
There are several different designed of mandibular advancement devices. Most all of them attach to the teeth in some fashion. Some models may have hinges, while other may be made from a boil and bite thermoplastic compound.
