Snoring Prevention

Snoring is a problem many people experience, but few know that it can be a sign of major health issues. More than 80 million people in North America alone snore while sleeping, and snoring doesn’t just affect the sleep of the person snoring, but it does the same to their loved ones as well. Fortunately, we have a way to treat chronic snoring.

Generally, snoring is caused when the muscles and soft tissues in your throat and mouth relax, causing the air passage to become smaller. This makes it more difficult for your breaths to get through the throat. Those that do get through cause vibrations when they pass over the soft tissues of the throat, making the snoring sound.

Other causes of snoring include:

  • Consumption of alcohol
  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea
  • Sleep aids and sedatives
  • Too much body weight

The Mandibular Advancement Device

A Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) Is a solution for many people who suffer from snoring. Specially designed to keep the lower jaw in a forward position, the MAD keeps your airway passage open, so you can breathe more easily and get a full night’s sleep. There are other devices that keep the tongue from falling backward, obstructing your windpipe. However, which device you will need depends on your condition.

Is a MAD comfortable?

Mandibular Advancement Devices are specially made to be comfortable, allowing you to sleep without noticing that you’re wearing one. It won’t keep you from breathing, and will, in fact, help you breathe more easily while stopping you from snoring, even if you have allergies or congestion. While you may experience a stiff jaw when you first start regularly wearing your device, this feeling is temporary and will disappear shortly after you remove the device.

Our Happy Patients

"When it comes to going to the dentist I'm not going to lie, I get anxiety. But as soon as I walked in everyone was so nice, to the girl who took my xrays, to Cyndi who cleaned my teeth, and to the dentist. They made me feel comfortable which was a big plus! Big thanks to Cyndi for being so patient with me, especially being the last person to be seen today. She explained my plan in detail to make sure I understood everything. Definitely would recommend this place!"
