Some Facts About Snoring
Typically, snoring occurs due to obstructions in the airway, such as collapsed tissues in the throat, large tonsils or the tongue rolling into the airway. Vibrations in the airway due to obstructions cause the snoring sound that we are so familiar with. Snoring is most common in men but can affect women as well. This condition is common and will likely affect most individuals at some point in their life. According to the American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Foundation, 45% of normal adults snore occasionally and 25% snore habitually. Knowing the frequency at which individuals snore, our team has made efforts to help our patients and their partners get relief.
What Can be Done?
Depending on your unique needs, our dentists and team may recommend that you wear an oral appliance to treat your snoring. This oral appliance is only worn while sleeping and can help you sleep more peacefully as it keeps the airway from collapsing. Since your appliance is custom-made for you, it is comfortable to wear. When worn properly, this oral appliance can reduce your nighttime snoring.
