Mouthguards For Sleep Apnea
Dr. Moore will make you a custom sleep apnea mouthguard that will be both comfortable and make it possible for you to breathe easier while sleeping. The mouthguard moves your lower jaw forward to create more space in the back of your mouth and throat. An added benefit for your partner – no more disruptive snoring!
Signs Of Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when your airways become blocked at night when you’re lying down. This blockage could be created by your tongue or the tissue and muscles in your throat relaxing. This blockage can cause you to stop breathing dozens of times throughout the night. Sometimes this is treated with a CPAP machine, but a less invasive mouthguard could be the right solution for you.
Some signs you have obstructive sleep apnea could be:
- Loud, disruptive snoring
- Waking up feeling tired despite having a full night’s sleep
- Beginning each morning with a dry mouth or a sore throat
