Did you know that 45% of normal adults snore at least occasionally? Not only is snoring a nuisance, but 75% of people who snore have obstructive sleep apnea (or OSA). OSA occurs when the muscles and tissue surrounding the throat relax causing the airway to collapse, blocking airflow to the lungs.
Not only can sleep apnea lead to serious medical conditions (heart attack, high blood pressure, stroke, and even depression) but a snoring partner often keeps the other person from getting a good night’s sleep as well. This device keeps the airway open and improves breathing during sleep and reduces snoring. For this very reason I decided to fabricate a sleep apnea device for my husband. My husband has suffered for the better part of his entire adulthood from snoring and, subsequently, trouble breathing during sleep. He claims that he often experiences nightmares when he has trouble breathing.
The appointment for my husband only took a few minutes to take simple impressions including getting a few measurements. From there it took about two weeks to get the device back from a dental laboratory, and now both of our lives have drastically improved. I am a light sleeper and was often woken up or prevented from falling asleep entirely because of his snoring and heavy breathing, that is until he started wearing his sleep apnea device. He has stopped snoring completely! He says he can now sleep very well without having nightmares since he can breathe normally. I not only highly recommend this device to my patients who struggle with this issue, or know someone who does, but I also have been telling all my friends and family! This device will help both you and your partner have a better night’s sleep, prevent snoring very effectively, all while improving the overall health of the one who is wearing it! I can not say enough good things about this dental device.
So if you or someone you know struggles with consistent snoring and/or sleep apnea but don’t want to go through the extremes (or don’t like wearing) the CPAP machine, then this less expensive, more comfortable device is just what the doctor ordered. The initial appointment only takes about 15-30 minutes and you will have your device within two weeks.
