Snoring is a common nighttime occurrence and is often frustrating for both the person who snores and everyone who hears it. At Arrowhead Family Dentistry, we offer treatments to minimize or eliminate snoring so that you and your loved ones can rest better at night.
Snoring is caused by obstructions in the airway, such as the tongue rolling back, large tonsils or the collapse of the soft tissues in the throat. As your airway muscles relax, these tissues can narrow the upper airway, resulting in snoring as the air causes vibrations when passing over the tissues.
While there are several treatments available to help manage snoring, the most common is oral appliance therapy. Our dentist will work with you to create a custom oral appliance that you can wear while asleep. This appliance helps to keep your airways open and free from blockages. Oral appliances work by preventing the tongue from rolling back or by holding the jaw in a slightly advanced position that prevents airway tissues from collapsing. This helps you to breathe easily so that you and your loved ones can get the rest you need and improve your health and quality of life.
