For many couples, sleeping in separate rooms becomes the norm over the years; when one partner snores excessively, the other must seek silence in order to get a good night’s rest, even if it means sleeping alone. Fortunately, loud snoring doesn’t have to ruin your relationship or result in night after night spent on the sofa. At Cosmetic & Family Dentistry in Weatherford, TX, Dr. Deborah A. Romack and Dr. Garrett Mulkey offer a variety of general dentistry solutions to help their patients enjoy happier, healthier lives, including snoring treatment and sleep apnea therapy.
Treating Snoring in a Way that Suits Your Lifestyle
The loud, annoying sound that we know as snoring is produced when air vibrates throughout and over the soft tissues of the throat, mouth, and nasal passages as we breathe. When the tongue and soft palate collapse during sleep, the passageway through which we draw our breaths becomes partially closed. If this leads to extended pauses in breathing, such as is the case in patients with sleep apnea, the risk for related health problems increases dramatically.
Fortunately, an oral appliance fitted specifically to match your mouth’s unique shape and size can help immensely. The comfortable mouthguard helps keep your tongue and jaw in their proper positions, thereby opening the airway and preventing snoring.
At Complete Cosmetic & Family Dentistry, we believe that each and every one of our patients deserves to enjoy the full benefits of a night uninterrupted by loud, intrusive snoring. Discover how much better your daily (and nightly) life can be with the addition of a custom oral appliance from our office. You won’t believe the difference!
