At Norwood Dental Centre, our Winnipeg dentist offers diagnoses and treatment for snoring and sleep apnea. Treatment may include using an oral device to help you manage your symptoms.
A snoring or sleep apnea device is a dental appliance your dentist may recommend to help treat symptoms of snoring or mild-to-moderate sleep apnea. If your dentist determines you are a candidate for a device, they will help you achieve a comfortable fit.
When you fall into a deep sleep, your tongue, soft palate and throat tissues fall into a relaxed state.
For those who snore or have sleep apnea, the relaxation of these throat tissues restricts or obstructs the airway making it more difficult to breathe and often disrupting sleep.
If you are experiencing any of the following signs of sleep apnea, visit your dentist to determine if you can benefit from an oral device.
There are a variety of dental appliances that will help keep your breathing regular during sleep. These devices push your tongue forward to open your airway, improving the flow of your breath and preventing you from waking up frequently during the night.
If you suffer from chronic snoring or any other symptoms of sleep apnea, you’ll likely benefit from getting dental help. Visit our Winnipeg dentist to see what treatment option might be right for you.
