Do you snore? Does the person sleeping one pillow over snore? If so, did you know that snoring can be a symptom of an even bigger problem? Obstructive sleep apnea could be the cause of your snoring. This disorder is characterized by disruptions in breathing lasting 10 seconds or more, leading to serious health complications. Moreover, these lapses in breathing can happen more than 100 times in one night! Although you will likely be unaware of these moments when breathing stops, your brain is well aware. Lacking oxygen, the brain signals the body to awaken in order to restart breathing.
Our team at The Dental Studio can help diagnose and treat your sleep apnea and alleviate snoring with snore therapy. We can create a custom intraoral appliance that can return you to quiet, refreshing sleep. This comfortable plastic appliance repositions your jaw to leave the airway open during sleep.
