Snoring can sometimes be an irritating habit especially when sleeping next to someone else. For most people, they cannot get a good night sleep while someone is snoring through the night. Excessive snoring can be caused by various dental complications some of which are not in the control of the dental patient.
One of the most ordinary dental conditions that cause excessive snoring during sleep is obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea affects the throat muscles making them ineffective in keeping the airway open as you sleep.
At Philip Farzad DDS dental clinic, we offer various dental solutions for persistent snoring. One of the most ordinary dental treatments for snoring is snoring appliances. Our dentist can help reduce snoring by recommending dental appliances that improve sleep.
A snoring device is usually worn at night as you sleep. Snoring is usually caused by poor muscle functioning at the throat. A Mandibular Advancement Device works by holding your lower jaw at a position that allows the tongue to stay in the front part of the mouth. This, in turn, helps reduce snoring by avoiding the throat muscle from contracting.
Most of the time we recommend a Mandibular Advancement Device for mild and moderate snoring.
Some of these Mandibular Advancement Devices can be fitted by yourself with instructions from the dentist. Visit us today and get the best snoring appliances for treating excessive snoring.
In some cases, snoring be able to caused by poor nose structure. For such incidences, we usually recommend getting an internal nasal dilator. An internal nasal dilator is one of the best snoring appliances when it comes to nasal related snoring.
As you sleep, your nostrils may collapse causing you not to take in enough air. A nasal dilator is usually placed on the nose to keep it open as you sleep. For people who do not prefer having a dental appliance on their nose, our dentist can recommend an external nasal strip. The nasal strip is most convenient for mild snoring.
For some people, nasal allergies can lead to excess snoring. These allergies can be accelerated by aspects like cold and dust. At Philip Farzad DDS dental clinic, you can get topical nasal steroid sprays for reducing allergic reactions. With reduced nasal reactions, you can enjoy less snoring and a better night’s sleep.
Nasal steroid sprays can be easily bought from a dental clinic. However, you should ensure that you get a dentist’s prescription in order to apply the topical cream accordingly.
One of the best snoring appliances is a CPAP machine. A large number of dental treatments usually involve CPAP machines to help improve breathing as you sleep. Most people who have CPAP machines have reported that their snoring symptoms have reduced significantly.
The machine works by producing a continuous flow of air into the nose as you sleep. This helps prevent blockage of the airway by throat muscles. Visit us today and get the best snoring solutions that will give you and your partner a good night’s sleep.
