Solutions for Snoring
Snoring is a common problem for many. Approximately 40% of adult men and 24% of adult women are habitual snorers.
Typically, snoring is caused by the relaxing of the muscles in the throat and mouth, making the air passage smaller. This small air passage forces your breathing to vibrate the soft tissue in your throat, which leads to a snoring sound. We can help treat your snoring issues by creating a custom-fitted Mandibular Advancement Device. This is a comfortable device that fits on your lower jaw and moves it slightly forward while you sleep. This small adjustment to your jaw's position allows you to breathe better and eliminates the snoring problem!
The most typical causes of snoring are:
- Excess body weight
- Use of alcohol
- Sleep aids/sedatives
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea
