Sleep gives your body an opportunity to recuperate from stress and other detrimental effects of the day. Just because you’re getting sleep, however, doesn’t mean you’re getting quality sleep. Snoring is one common reason. It doesn’t only create noisy nights, it indicates that your breathing is compromised. Snoring often occurs when the soft tissues of your mouth collapse onto and obstruct your airway, often causing you to repeatedly stop breathing every night. The American Sleep Apnea Association reports that an estimated 22 million Americans have sleep apnea. To help you overcome this harmful habit, our Smile Design Dental team provides safe, comfortable, and effective sleep apnea treatment in South Florida.
Once you’ve been diagnosed with sleep apnea, we offer customized mouthguards in [city, state] to protect you from its dangers. These are similar to mouthguards you might use during sports activities to stop you from clenching your jaws. With this type of sleep apnea treatment, our team creates impressions of your teeth that ensure your mouthguard will fit firmly and correctly. When your mouthguard is ready, you’ll take it home and slip it over your teeth at bedtime. This oral appliance will hold your lower jaw slightly forward, preventing soft tissues from blocking your airway and causing you to snore. You may begin to notice the benefits of sleep apnea treatment virtually immediately, with more energy during the day and quieter, more restful sleep at night!
