Believe it or not, snoring and sleep apnea are often related to dental problems, and your dentist in Belmont can offer treatment. You can lower your risk for these conditions by changing your lifestyle habits and taking care of yourself, but what can you do if you already snore or suffer from sleep apnea? Watch this video for a quick look at oral appliance therapy.
Oral appliance therapy is a common treatment option for snoring and sleep apnea, and it’s not nearly as invasive or inconvenient as CPAP machines or surgery. This treatment method aims to keep your airways open by either changing the position of your jaw or keeping your tongue from blocking the path of the air. Oral appliances are convenient to use and fit just like a retainer would, and the appliances themselves are comfortable and removable. If you have sleep apnea, oral appliance therapy could change your life.
