YOU MAY BE AMONG the 45% of adults who snore, or you likely know someone who does. Snoring is not only a nuisance, but it has very serious health implications. 75% of people who snore have obstructive sleep apnea (when, for short periods, breathing is disrupted during sleep), which increases the risk of developing heart disease. Snoring can also lead to other serious health issues like stroke, diabetes, and high blood pressure if left untreated. Fortunately, at Dental Partners of Boston, we have a simple solution to correct snoring.
A Simple Solution for Snoring
Snore guards are small flexible pieces of plastic that are worn in your mouth during sleep. The unit fits snugly over your top teeth and is designed to keep your lower jaw in a comfortable forward position. This design prevents the air passage from being restricted by the jaw and tongue dropping back into the throat. The snore guard greatly reduces snoring by keeping the airway in the throat open and clear.
A Snore Guard Could Protect Your Sleep, And Your Health
If your sleep is being compromised because of your own (or someone else’s) snoring, then the snore guard is perfect for you. Snore guards are molded to the unique shape of your mouth to provide ultimate comfort when wearing it.
The Process Is Surprisingly Easy
The entire process of getting your snore guard is done without tools, drugs, needles, x-rays, or lab work! All it takes is one painless visit to our office. Simply call us to make an appointment today!
