Chances are someone in your household is a snorer.ᅠ That's OK, snoring is more common then you might realize.ᅠ A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine revealed an estimated 80 million people in the United States chronically snore ヨ that is almost one third of the population!ᅠ While the affects of snoring may not be too much of a concern for that particular snorer, it can affect others who must tolerate it.ᅠ An estimated 160 million people, including spouses, boy/girl-friends, and children, are negatively affected by snoring.ᅠ This can lead to tension and even hostility in relationships.ᅠᅠᅠᅠᅠ ᅠ

While you may think there is nothing you can do (after all you are asleep), a solution actually exists in a snoring prevention device named Silent Nite.ᅠ This custom-made, flexible, comfortable and affordable device has been a godsend to many people.ᅠ If you are a snorer or suffer from a snorer in the Greater Phoenix Metropolitan Area, a Dentalfind Phoenix cosmetic dentists can be the first step towards a better night's rest.ᅠ To understand how the Silent Nite device works, one must understand the physiologically mechanisms behind snoring. ᅠ

Briefly, the muscles in your pharynx (throat) are relaxed while you sleep, making your breathing airways smaller than when it is contracted.ᅠ Having a smaller airway will increase the air flowing through the airway when breathing (simple physics).ᅠ As air goes through the constricted airways at higher velocities when breathing, it will affect soft tissues in the area, namely the soft palate and uvula, causing them to vibrate.ᅠ The vibrating soft tissue results in snoring.ᅠ ᅠ

The Sleep Nite device is a custom-made device that has been designed to prevent snoring by positioning the lower jaw into a forward position.ᅠ By doing so, the device increases the amount of space in your air passages through the pharynx (throat).ᅠ By increasing the volumetric capacity of the air space, a greater amount of air can be breathed in and out without the soft tissue (palate and uvula) vibrating, thereby impeding snoring.ᅠ Sleep Nite has proven very effective in preventing snoring.ᅠ Results from clinical studies have shown that the Sleep Nite device had snoring prevention success rates from 70- to 100-percent!

If this has you interested, Dentalfind can connect you with a trusted Phoenix dentist who will offer you an initial complimentary consultation to determine your candidacy for this product.ᅠ You will have to fill out a questionnaire aimed to identify your snoring pattern, which will also assist in the specific design of the Silent Nite.ᅠ Dentalfind affiliated cosmetic dentists in Phoenix will go onto to take impressions of the upper and lower arch of your jaw.ᅠ From this information, a custom-made Silent Nite snoring device will be manufactured.
