Snoring and Sleep
Consistent snoring can negatively affect your sleep and the sleep of your loved ones. When you miss out on sleep, and especially when you miss out on sleep on a regular basis, you will find it more difficult to focus during the day, and accomplish what you need to. Getting a good night’s sleep is also important to staying healthy for a lifetime and avoiding serious health issues in the future. If snoring is keeping you or your loved ones up at night, set up an appointment with Dr. Alexander. He provides what you need to sleep better.
Snoring Appliance Therapy
After a consultation and examination, your dentist can prescribe a snoring appliance for you, so that you, and those around you, can begin to sleep better. A snoring appliance looks and works just like a sports mouth guard or a retainer. You wear the snoring appliance only during sleep. The snoring appliance will keep your jaw in a forward position, which in turn keeps your airway open. When your airway remains open, you are able to breathe easily and your snoring can decrease dramatically or even disappear. Some of the advantages of sleeping appliances include:
- Easy to use
- Easy to care for
- Comfortable to wear
- Portable and convenient
- Allow you to sleep better
- Allow those around you to sleep better
Dr. Alexander will take impressions of your teeth and send them into a dental lab for the creation of an oral device that is perfect for you. You will be invited for follow-up visits, so that your dentist can make sure that your snoring appliance is improving your life the way it should be.
Every day is brighter and easier when you get a good night’s sleep. Frequent snoring is a common problem that can be easily remedied when you turn to Dr. Kevin Alexander. He can create a personalized snoring appliance just for you so that you can improve the quality and duration of your sleep.
