Most people know they snore but don't know why. Snoring will happen as air passes through a partially obstructed airwayﾗusually the result of throat muscles that have relaxed so much that they collapse partially and compromise your breathing. Then there's sleep apnea which is a more serious condition where the throat and pallet's soft tissue blocks the airway. This causes breathing to be completely obstructed for a moment which leads to some gagging and choking. As you can imagine this disrupts the quality of your sleep which leads to all kinds of other complaints, such as stress, anxiety, exhaustion and headaches. People who suffer from sleep apnea also commonly complain of waking with sore and dry throats.
You may have seen or even tried the cumbersome mask treatment that is commonly used to treat sleep apnea. Thankfully that is no longer your only option and there is a much easier and more comfortable way to treat sleep both snoring and sleep apnea. It's a small dental device that is custom-fitted to you and worn while you sleep. It works by keeping your airway open so that you can breathe and sleep properly all night long. And because it's smallﾠ and made just for you it is incredibly comfortable.
Please give us a call to find out more if you or someone you love suffers from obstructive sleep apnea or chronic snoring. Your good night's sleep may be just a call away!
