Dental Night Guard for Sleep Apnea
Snoring happens when air is forced past the collapsed muscles in your throat. The muscles in this area relax when you sleep, and this can close off your airways and make it difficult to breathe. While embarrassing and annoying, snoring can often be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a life-threatening condition. CPAP therapy is the standard way to treat OSA; however, a dental mouth guard that gently props your jaw forward to keep your airway clear so that you can breathe peacefully is gaining popularity as an alternative for people who have trouble using a CPAP machine.
With a recommendation from your medical doctor, we can design a night guard that props your jaw forward so you can breath quietly and safely.
On the SnoreLab app my snore score went from a 29 down to an 8 after wearing my new sleep apnea night guard. I can't believe how well rested I feel since wearing the guard.
