Does your loved one snore at night? At Hacienda Heights Family Dentistry, we understand the frustrations that can be caused by snoring, and we offer snoring treatments to minimize snoring so that you and your loved one can get the rest you need.
Snoring is a common nighttime occurrence and is caused by obstructions in the airway, such as when the soft tissues of the throat collapse, the tongue rolls back or when the tonsils are very large. As your airway relaxes in sleep, the air will pass through this obstructed area and cause the vibrations that result in snoring.
Our dentist offers oral appliance therapy to help you manage snoring. Oral appliance therapy involves the use of a custom oral appliance to keep your airway open. This mouth piece is worn at night and works by either preventing the tongue from rolling back or holding the jaw in an advanced position that will keep the airway tissues from relaxing and collapsing. By keeping the airway open and free from obstruction, snoring is prevented so that you can breathe easily at night.
