IT’S MORE THAN A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP…IT’S YOUR HEALTH
A snore guard is a dental appliance for treating snoring and sleep apnea. It is a custom made device that is worn at night while you sleep. It is designed so that the lower jaw is repositioned forward allowing the airway to stay open during sleep.
Snore guards and sleep apnea appliances provide a safe, non-surgical approach to the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. These dental appliances are much less expensive than other alternatives and other treatment options.
You may think that snoring or sleep apnea is not something to be concerned about, however, many don’t realize that persistent, deep snoring may be a symptom of sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening disorder. It is when breathing becomes obstructed during sleep, causing one to stop breathing for seconds at a time. Over time sleep apnea can cause serious health risks, including death.
Symptoms experienced by patients who have snoring and sleep apnea may include:
- Long pauses between breathing during sleep
- Choking and or snorting during sleep
- Tiredness during the day
- Restless sleep
- Insomnia or frequent waking during sleep
- Waking up with a dry mouth or sore throat
- Going to the bathroom frequently during the night
- Difficulty concentrating or remembering things
- Moodiness, irritability, or depression
- Morning headaches
