Everything You Need to Know about Snoring Dental Appliances

Categories: Sleep Apnea, Snoring

Snoring is a common problem that affects millions of people around the world. It can be disruptive to both the snorer and those who share a bed with them, leading to lack of sleep and even relationship issues. Fortunately, there are treatments available such as snoring dental appliances that can help reduce snoring. Houston Sleep Solutions located in Pearland and Friendswood, TX can help. Let’s look at what these devices are, how they work, and why you should consider using one.

What Is a Snoring Dental Appliance?

A snoring dental appliance is a device designed to eliminate or reduce snoring by keeping the airway open while sleeping. The device is usually worn in the mouth like an orthodontic retainer or night guard. It works by gently moving the lower jaw forward and opening the airway. This prevents soft tissue from collapsing onto itself, which can block airflow and cause snoring. The appliance also helps keep your tongue from slipping back into your throat, which can also contribute to blocked airways and unpleasant noise during sleep.

Why Should I Consider Using One?

Snoring dental appliances offer many benefits when it comes to reducing or eliminating snoring. For starters, they are easy to use; all you must do is slip the device into your mouth before going to bed each night. They are also relatively inexpensive compared to other treatments such as surgery or nasal strips and sprays. Additionally, many appliances come with adjustable settings so you can customize it for maximum comfort and effectiveness. Finally, since these devices are worn inside your mouth rather than on your face or head like some other treatments, they are discreet and comfortable for long-term use.

Snoring dental appliances are an effective way to reduce or eliminate snoring without having to resorting to expensive surgery or uncomfortable products like nasal strips and sprayers. They are easy-to-use devices that fit comfortably inside your mouth like an orthodontic retainer or night guard while helping keep your airways open throughout the night so you can get a good night’s rest (and your partner will too!). If you’re looking for an affordable solution that won’t disrupt your sleep habits, then considering trying a snore dental appliance today!
