Snoring Treatment

Sometimes snoring isn't the result of sleep apnea, but simply due to restricted airways. Oftentimes, it’ll happens regularly, which can drive your partner mad. Once or twice a week is normal, but any more, and you should consider a snoring treatment.

How Dentists Can Help Prevent Snoring

Often, we'll employ the same methods we utilize for obstructive sleep apnea for the excessive snorer. Much to the comfort of our patients, the same treatments are equally as effective. We’ll use oral appliances to help stabilize your airways.

Another way of fixing this problem is with a CPAP machine. CPAP stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure. As the name implies, this constant pressure props open the airways, allowing for easier breathing all night long.

Common factors that lead to snoring are:

  • Consuming alcohol
  • Sinus or nasal problems
  • Sleeping position
  • Mouth structure

While not all reasons surround your choices or habits, some can easily be cut from your life. Ultimately, no one should ignore excessive snoring–it’s not only loud and often annoying,  but can be a sign of larger health concerns.

Side Effects of Snoring

There are 11 reasons how snoring can negatively affect your health. First, it can raise your blood pressure. Second, snoring leads to restless sleep. Third, restless sleep leads to daytime tiredness. Here are additional ways snoring can affect your health:

  • Pauses in breathing throughout the night
  • Decline in concentration
  • Headaches
  • Dry mouth
  • Choking/gasping
  • Chest pain
  • Poor performance in school or work

Consider visiting your dentist twice a year. We may notice signs of dry mouth which signifies snoring well before you're aware.
