Snoring Therapy

Common Causes of Snoring

snoring.jpgSnoring is caused by the vibrations of your soft and/or hard tissue palates; these vibrations occur because of increasingly narrow air passages. When air passes through these passages, a “flapping” sound occurs because the tissue is soft in nature. Surgery (to alleviate the snoring) is not always successful, however, because the sound may not originate from the soft palate; the snoring sometimes originates from tissues in the upper airway

Snoring affects millions of people of all ages, both male and female. Oral appliance therapy is the most common treatment for "non-sleep apnea" snoring problems. Treatment procedures range from changing your sleep patterns to utilizing an appliance that helps open the airways during sleep.

We offer a very simple appliance that reduces noise from snoring. While no dentist can diagnose sleep apnea, a dentist can fit you with a very simple and discreet appliance that can eliminate snoring and reduce the effects of sleep apnea.
