Dental Appliances & Sleep Apnea copy
Snoring can be a sign of a serious health concern known as Sleep Apnea. At night when we sleep, the muscles around our soft palate, the uvula, tonsils and tongue relax. The jaw falls back, the tongue blocks the airway, and the snoring sound we hear is the air vibrating the soft tissues as it forces its way past the blockage. Get in touch to determine the best solution for you.
Sleep Apnea is when breathing stops during sleep. This can last from several seconds to over a minute, cutting off oxygen supply to the body. This can occur hundreds of time over the course of a night.
Often the sleeper will wake up, which can result in someone waking up many dozens of times a night, leading to poor sleep.
There are many ways to approach treating sleep apnea. These largely depend on the individual circumstances, as not every treatment is viable for every patient.
