Speaking to Your Dentist About Your Snoring Problem

Snoring is not only disruptive to the person who sleeps in the bed next to you. It also disturbs your own sleep, whether you realize it or not. Snoring happens when your airway closes part of the way while you breathe during sleep.

It may not seem like it is a very big deal, but it really can be. Not only do you not sleep as well as you could, but it could also cause you to venture into sleep apnea, which is worse.

Your Dentist Can Often Help When You Snore


Snoring is something most people think they need to only speak with their doctor about, and typically only when it gets really bad. However, your dentist is just as capable of helping, if not more so.

Your dentist can help fit you with an oral appliance that can often adjust your jaw. This adjustment can help your jaw sit in a more natural spot for your airway to stay open, allowing you to breathe without the snoring problem you had before.

If your snoring is borderline sleep apnea, they can also help you with some of the treatments for that. The first way to treat sleep apnea for most dentists is to figure out if an oral appliance can help in much the same way that it would if you snored. Your dentist can also go over ways that you can help decrease the severity of your sleep apnea, such as proper sleeping position or losing weight.

Snoring is a disturbance to all that encounter it. Know that there is help out there, and you do not need to wait until it gets bad to get help. Contact our office today and let him or her help you figure out what could be causing the snoring in your life.
