Can you relieve my disruptive snoring?
Some of our patients come to us because their spouse or partner has complained of loud, disruptive snoring. Snoring is not just a nuisance; it can be a sign of a serious health condition called sleep apnea. Getting checked for sleep apnea through a sleep study is essential to rule out any potentially dangerous conditions.
Snoring can disrupt your sleep and the sleep of those who share your house with you. Daytime fatigue can make you less alert and able to function properly throughout your day. It can be dangerous to operate a vehicle or use machinery without a proper night’s sleep.
When we treat patients in our office for snoring, we look at a various factors before deciding on treatment. In our dental office, Dr. Jeffrey Robertson provides a number of different appliances to help relieve your snoring. Each of the appliances we offer can be customized for your bite, jaw, teeth and mouth in order to provide maximum comfort and snoring relief.
Most of them work by repositioning your jaw, opening your airway, or repositioning your tongue to reduce the vibration that causes snoring. Most of our patients report reduction or elimination of snoring resulting in a better night’s sleep for all involved.
