Snoring

Snoring can affect sleep quality (of both the snorer and others!), which plays an essential role in good health and well-being. It can also be a sign of sleep apnea. The sound is produced by the vibration of respiratory structures caused by the restricted movement of air. A host of conditions can cause snoring, including nasal obstruction, sleeping on one’s back, smoking, obesity, age and others. A popular and effective treatment for snoring is a specially designed oral appliance, called a mandibular advancement splint. This device advances the lower jaw and pulls the tongue forward in order to keep the airway open. Speak with a member of our team today for more information on various snoring solutions.
