Many people don't know that we may be able to help you to stop snoring. They also don’t realize that snoring is often an indication of sleep apnea – a disorder where a person stops breathing while they sleep, for periods of 10 seconds or longer. Sleep apnea is linked with high blood pressure, high incidence of stroke and heart disease.
At Evergreen Dental, we can make a custom snoring appliance you wear while you sleep. The device forces the jaw forward, preventing the soft throat tissues from collapsing and obstructing the airway.
Evergreen Dental’s treatment process includes a sleep analysis at home, provision of the appliance, and follow-up evaluation. This appliance is comfortable and has been very effective in helping people stop or reduce snoring. It also helps a person to feel more rested and energetic the next day.
If you’re concerned about your snoring – or the snoring of your loved one – contact Evergreen Dental today to learn more about diagnosing and treating sleep apnea in Dartmouth.
