Many people view snoring as a minor annoyance, but it can be a symptom of more severe health issues. Interestingly, the source of the problem may lie within your mouth. Dental issues can play a significant role in the development of snoring, impacting not just your sleep quality but also your overall health. Let’s explore the surprising connection between oral health and snoring, and provide insights into how addressing dental problems can help you or your loved ones achieve more restful nights.

At Dee for Dentist, we offer comprehensive dental care, focusing on patient comfort and advanced technology. Our services include cosmetic, general, and pediatric dentistry treatments, as well as specialized care for sleep apnea and snoring. Addressing dental problems can significantly reduce snoring, improving sleep quality and overall well-being. If you think you may have sleep apnea, we encourage you to reach out to our team to schedule an appointment.

What Are the Common Causes of Snoring?

There are several possible causes of snoring, some of which include dental issues you should get addressed. The following are some of the most common causes of snoring or other poor sleep symptoms:

  • Obstructions from sleep apnea
  • Nasal congestion
  • Drinking alcohol
  • Smoking tobacco
  • Being overweight
  • Narrow airways due to genetics
  • Irregular sleep schedule
  • Aging
  • Sleeping on your back

Depending on the circumstances and symptoms you’re experiencing, you may be able to take action and treat the issue. Any problems connected to sleep apnea or dental concerns may be diagnosable at Dee for Dentist. We would be happy to walk you through your options for moving forward with your care.

When Should You See a Dentist for Snoring Issues?

If you snore at night or feel fatigued during the day, we encourage you to visit a dentist. Fatigue and snoring could indicate that you have sleep apnea or other dental issues, and your dentist can help you determine whether you would benefit from treatments.

We may have you undergo specific testing and observation to determine what dental or medical issues may impact your sleep. From here, our team can provide a formal diagnosis, recommend treatment plans, and refer you to additional specialists if necessary. We look forward to meeting you and supporting you to achieve your sleep and smile goals.

What Are Healthy Start™ Appliances and How Can They Help?

Healthy Start™ appliances are part of a program intended to help children who might be at an increased risk for developing sleep apnea. The program treats the problem by using a series of comfortable oral appliances (think a sports mouthguard) that guides jaw bone development  allowing for the proper space for teeth to come in straight and the proper size airway to develop. This process helps children grow healthfully and breathe more clearly at night. If you notice your child between the ages of two and 12 is snoring or exhibiting other signs of the issue, we can help.

We are dedicated to providing outstanding care to children and their families through Healthy Start™ and other treatment plans. By using Healthy Start™ appliances, children are far less likely to require additional treatments or a CPAP when they are older.

While children older than 12 are not likely to be eligible for Healthy Start™ appliances, Dee for Dentist also provides additional treatment plans and care options that may help. We encourage you to reach out to our team to learn more about your options based on your lifestyle, goals, and concerns.
