woman unhappy with snoring partnerWhen you learn that you have a tendency to snore, you can feel a sense of embarrassment. You may also feel guilt over the possibility that you are keeping your partner from enjoying restful sleep of their own. Discussing this matter with your Livonia/Detroit, MI dentist can be beneficial for several reasons. One is that by treating the matter, you can put a stop to loud, disruptive breathing while you rest that may disturb others. Another is that you can find out your issues are connected to sleep apnea, a problem that can seriously disrupt your overall health. Through oral appliance therapy to address your troubles, we can help you rest soundly and peacefully again.

The Trouble With A Snoring Habit

The immediate concern people have about snoring is that they may be keeping their partner awake, or otherwise causing interference with the rest of others they live with. If you snore because you struggle with obstructive sleep apnea, you can find that your troubles are more significant than this. You may find out that your trouble breathing is actually interfering with your rest cycle, something that can affect your well-being over time. The good news is that for many people, this matter is something that a custom oral appliance can address.

Using An Oral Appliance To Address Snoring

Through oral appliance therapy for snoring, we can put an end to your disruptive, loud breathing. Your loud breathing can be the result of partial airway interference. In other words, soft tissues in your throat can partly block your air, leading to noisier sounds. With an oral appliance in place, you can change the position of your jaw to stop obstruction. As a result, you can sleep soundly once again!

What If I Snore Because Of Sleep Apnea?

Beyond causing you to snore, sleep apnea can impact your life in several worrying ways. Over time, you can experience worsening problems with fatigue, as you are not able to complete your rest cycle. This can lead to persistent grogginess, trouble with your mental health, a lack of focus, and even an inability to stay awake during the day. It can also lead to alarming health changes, such as increased blood pressure. The longer you take to address this problem, the more it can do to affect your well-being.
