If you snore, you know how much of an annoyance it can be to your loved ones; however, it may be more than just an annoyance. Snoring may be a sign of a more serious sleep disorder known as sleep apnea, in which airway obstructions cause interruptions to your breathing as you sleep. While not all people who snore have sleep apnea, we recommend talking to your doctor or dentist about sleep apnea if you snore frequently.
If you snore but do not suffer from sleep apnea, we have a solution to minimize snoring and help you get a better night’s rest (and a better night’s rest for your partner, too!). Dr. Wilkinson, Dr. Mistry, and Dr. Jardine offer custom-made snore guards at Smiles Dental. A snore guard is a custom-made oral appliance (a specialized mouth guard) that is designed to keep your airway free from obstructions that cause snoring. You can rest assured that our dentists will make certain that your snore guard fits comfortably and effectively so you can sleep peacefully. To learn more about snore guards and treatment for snoring in Camas, Washington, we invite you to call or visit us today. A more peaceful night’s sleep is just a call away!
