Stop Snoring Tonight
Is snoring affecting your sleep or your bed partner’s sleep? If snoring is placing strain on your relationship, or leaving you feeling tired during the day, come see, Dr. Martin Buchheit for answers.
Is Snoring a Sign of Sleep Apnea?
You may snore for various reasons, and sleep apnea is at the top of the list. Sleep apnea is characterized by pauses in breathing during sleep. This sleeping disorder increases the risk of stroke, depression, and heart disease.
No matter why you snore, you likely want to stop snoring. Snoring can leave you feeling exhausted and embarrassed.
Resolving Snoring and Sleep Apnea
First and foremost, Dr. Buchheit will determine if your snoring is linked to sleep apnea or not. We want to assess the seriousness of the situation and prescribe the proper treatment.
Next, we can stop snoring with a customized snoring mouthpiece. Dr. Buchheit understands that snoring is the result of soft tissues in the throat being pulled into the airway by gravity during sleep. The tissues vibrate and create the snoring sound.
An oral occlusal device, or a snoring mouthpiece, prevents the lower jaw from pulling back during sleep. By keeping the jaw in its optimal position, the snoring mouthpiece also keeps the throat’s tissues open and the airway clear.
