How can you overcome snoring?

While snoring may seem like a harmless problem for many people, chronic snoring problem can also be a sign to indicate some major health complications. According to a survey it is estimated that over 80 million people residing in North America tend to snore while sleeping, which not only affects the quality of sleep that the individual, but also their bed patners. Luckily, there is a way in which you can cure persistent snoring problem.

What causes snoring?

Snoring can be based on various factors. Generally, you smore as result to relaxing of the muscles and soft tissues in your throat and mouth, making the air passage thinner. This decrease in space makes it harder for the for each breath to get through, and when your breath does get through it moves over the muscles and soft tissues causing a vibration which results in your snore sound. Some of the other general reasons for snoring may include:

  • If you are overweight
  • Regular Alcohol consumption
  • Certain sleep aides or medications
  • Obstructive Sleep Apnea

Mandibular Advancement Device - How can it help?

If you or your loved ones are frequent snorers then mandibular advancement device (MAD) can be used as an ideal solution for better night’s sleep! MAD is a dental device that is specially designed to be worn by the snorer during their sleep time this gently maintain your lower jaw, in an outward position, increasing the space between the airway passage, helping the snorer to breathe better and get a full, quiet night’s sleep.

MAD are generally made of plastic devices and helps to keep the soft tissues from collapsing and blocking the airway passage. They achieve this by getting your lower jaw forward or by lifting up your soft tissues. Some advanced device can also help to prevent your tongue from falling back over your windpipe. Your dentist will be able to better analyze your condition and will help you fit these special devices.

Are these MAD comfortable to use?

YES! A mandibular advancement is devised keeping in mind the comfort of the user so that they can sleep without even noticing that they have in their mouth. It will not stop you from breathing with your mouth open and will even block snore sounds from the patients with sinus congestion or any sort of allergies. You may, however, feel some slight stiffness of the jaw for the first few mornings after wearing the device, you will experience this stiffness is only for a little while, and will fade away after waking up and removing the device.

Testimonials

I had my first dentist appointment at sunny dental care. The experience was super great, from receptionist, dental assistant, to my dentist Dr. Wong. They are all super nice and helpful. Going to dentist used to be one of my nightmares, but not anymore when I find this gem! Btw, office provide bottle water, juice, and capsule coffee. For new patient, they give you a little welcome gift as well. I'll definitely recommend it to my friends.

I was recommended this place by a coworker and I am SO psyched to have actually listened. What a joyful place for a dentist office!! That day, today, I ended up booking appointments for the fillings I had an instinct I needed. The walls are yellow, every face I met was kind, and I'll likely never go anywhere else as long as my NYC life shall live.. and as long as they keep taking my insurance. SO GRATEFUL! :)
