Who doesn’t like to snuggle with their partner after a long day at work, especially when settling in for the night and finally getting some quality time together? For some couples, bedtime might mean stress-time because one partner snores and keeps the other awake. In some cases, snoring is so loud that partners are forced to sleep in separate rooms. This poses a real challenge when it comes to maintaining your connection and intimacy in a relationship.
The Effects of Snoring
Snoring can have a negative impact on the snorer, as well. Disrupted sleep, a sore throat, and even a serious medical condition called obstructive sleep apnea can all affect the quality of sleep you achieve.
The result can be a long, tiring day for all parties involved.
That is why we offer custom snore guards at our Bear Creek Houston dental office.
As snore guard is a custom oral appliance that fits over your upper, lower, or both upper and lower teeth, depending on your needs. A snore guard gently opens the airway at the back of your throat, allowing for the free flow of oxygen and minimizing or eliminating snoring.
Snore guards allow patients to achieve quieter and better restorative sleep. If you suffer from obstructive sleep apnea, this type of appliance is endorsed by the American Academy of Sleep Medicine for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea alike. Patients usually find that a snore guard is easier to get used to wearing than a CPAP mask and that they experience less daytime fatigue with regular use.
