Oral Appliance Therapy to the Rescue
Chittenden Dental can help you and everyone in your household get a better night’s sleep. Whether you, your partner or someone else in your home snores or suffers from a sleeping disorder, there is help from your dentist in Burlington.
Thankfully, people with obstructive sleep apnea or people who are chronic snorers have help with oral appliance therapy.
Oral appliance therapy is the less constrictive way to open the airways so that you can breathe.
Oral Appliance Therapy
If you have been diagnosed with a sleeping disorder such as obstructive sleep apnea, you have probably already tried CPAP Therapy. If you did and no longer use it, you are not alone.
Most people give up this type of therapy because it is extremely uncomfortable. Dr. Mike Morris explains that giving up any type of therapy can make things worse when it comes to snoring and OSA.
From oral splints to custom made mouth guards and MAGO Therapy, your dentist in Burlington has the experience and knowledge to recommend the best dental sleep medicine for your needs.
What Happens When You Snore
While not everyone who snores suffers from a sleeping disorder, chronic snoring still causes problems. The person who snores may also gasp for breath. If you snore or someone you know snores they aren’t getting a proper nights rest.
This type of solution helps with snoring as it puts your tongue in the right place so your breathing isn’t affected.
If you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, you will know that the airways constrict when you go to sleep. In fact, your throat relaxes so much that you probably wake up gasping for breath 20 times or more.
Oral appliance therapy is the conservative approach to snoring and sleeping disorders including obstructive sleep apnea.
