Do you snore? (Or, sleep with someone that does?)

18 to 30 million adults in America suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Some are familiar with that name. Others relate to the symptom—loud snoring! This chronic condition can be detrimental to the health and quality of life for the one snoring and the one trying to sleep beside them.

Many treatments involve a bulky and cumbersome CPAP machine. This device is not only inconvenient at home, but incredibly troublesome for travel. Many users report the need check an extra suitcase for air travel.

A new product called, SomnoDent has been developed. It’s often referred to as a sleep apnea mouth guard or snoring mouthpiece.

Do you have sleep apnea?
Throat muscles and the tongue relaxes during sleep. Your airway can become obstructed and prevent normal breathing. Here are some signs you could be suffering from sleep apnea:
• Snore at night
• Very tired during the day
• Noticeable pauses in nighttime breathing
• Teeth grinding at night

CPAP alternative

CPAP alternative
If you are already using a CPAP, you already know how bulky and inconvenient this device can be. The snoring mouthpiece is custom fitted and will fit in the palm of your hand. A big advantage to the sleep apnea mouth guard is that it makes no noise!

We’d be happy to schedule an appointment to help you identify the source of your snoring or talk with you more about an alternative to the CPAP machine.
