Snoring (Sleep Apnea)
Sleep apnea is a potentially life-threatening sleep disorder characterized by repeated pauses in breathing during sleep. Breathing pauses can last anywhere from several seconds to minutes, and happen as often as 30 times or more per hour. The brain senses these pauses and partially wakes the body up to restart breathing. A common side effect of this is loud snoring or choking sensations. Not only does this irritate others sleeping near you but it is also a potentially life threatening condition. Sleep apnea also leads to poor quality sleep for the sufferer.
Initially, the dentist will investigate, diagnose, and pinpoint a suitable treatment. The dentist can offer many different treatment options which depend largely on the exact diagnosis and the health of the patient.
One of the most popular and highly recommended options is the SomnoDent MAS. The SomnoDent MAS is a device that teases the lower jaw forward and prevents the tongue from blocking the main air passage, the main cause of snoring. This device is gentle and easy to wear.
You won’t find a more comfortable MAS. It is tailor-made to fit your mouth; it does not impinge on your tongue inside your mouth; you have normal open and close jaw movement; you can even close your mouth and lips to avoid a dry throat.
