It is estimated that more than 90 million North Americans snore. Plus, you need to account for how a person’s snoring interferes with spouses and children. Second hand snoring effects are real danger.
The struggle for breath can result in soaring blood pressure, which can damage the walls of the carotid arteries and increase the risk of stroke. At certain levels of severity, complete blockage of the airway space can occur. If this period of asphyxiation lasts longer than 10 seconds, it is called Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a medical condition with serious long-term effects.
There are a few treatment options for snoring and sleep apnea. Some involve awkward masks and machinery (CPAP) and even Sleep Apnea Surgery. However, most patients don’t like sleeping with a mask and surgical techniques have shown only moderate success rates but have high surgical complication risks.
For most snorers, however, the most affordable, noninvasive, comfortable and effective snoring solution is a dental appliance that Dr. Nugent can make. This is a custom made dental device that moves the lower jaw downward and into a more forward position. This movement opens the airway by moving the base of the tongue away from the back of the throat. The fit is excellent and comfortable and allows for uninhibited breathing.
