Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition that affects numerous individuals while they sleep. Instead of breathing normally during sleep, the soft palate and tongue drops into the back of the throat causing the sleeper to cease breathing. The sleeper will respond to this lack of air by suddenly snorting and snoring. By the morning, the sufferer may feel unusually tired and often complain of headaches. Sleep apnea is not just troublesome for the sleeper and their sleeping companion, it is also dangerous and can take up to 12 years off of your life. Sleep apnea has been medically linked to high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease. Making it crucial to be diagnosed and treated as soon as possible.
When you suffer from sleep apnea, every night can be a frustrating experience. Thankfully now you can get the rest you need to function at your best with a sleep apneic appliance or snore guard. When someone who has been diagnosed with sleep apnea comes to us for help, we usually start by custom-creating snore guards. These guards are devices worn at night that keep the mouth slightly open. This position fosters a more open airway with less frequency of snoring or blockages.
For many people, snore guards that are worn while asleep solve most, if not all, of their sleep apnea issues. If other treatments are also necessary, such as CPAP machines, the snore guard can still be utilized to increase the patient’s success.
