Anti-snoring Appliance Helps You Sleep
When you are tossing and turning, waking up 100 times a night, snoring like a train, waking up lacking energy and feeling not fresh, you may have been diagnosed with Sleep Apnea by your sleep doctor. This is a condition when you stop breathing at night because your airway gets plugged with your tongue or tissues in the neck (Obstructive Sleep Apnea) or your brain stops sending signals to your lungs to inhale (Central Sleep Apnea).
There are a few ways to manage the Obstructive Sleep Apnea: CPAP machine or Sleep Apnea appliance. The CPAP machine blows the air into your lungs to help you breathe. The Sleep Apnea (anti-snoring) appliance moves your lower jaw forward during the night and opens up valuable space in your windpipe to inhale better and supply your brain with oxygen. Please consult one of our denturists about Sleep Apnea appliances to learn more.

Sleep Apnea FAQs
What causes snoring?
The hoarse or harsh sound referred to as “snoring” is a result of obstructed airflow through the mouth and nose. This airflow obstruction can occur from a number of different reasons:
- Genetic Factors – excess tissues around airways (long uvula or soft palate) can cause narrow passageways, which results in snoring.
- Narrow Nasal Passages – Individuals with nasal polyps or a deviated septum are likely to snore frequently. Additionally, those with allergies or clogged sinuses will also often snore.
- Enlarged Tissues – Those with enlarged tonsils or adenoids and often likely to snore.
- Lack of Muscle Tone – Poor muscle tone in the throat can cause the muscles to become too relaxed during sleep. When these muscles collapse and fall back, they can obstruct the airway.
What is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep Apnea is a sleep disorder in which your breathing starts and stops. Your breathing gets affected by either your airways getting blocked by your tongue or tissues/muscles in the throat, or your brain stops sending signals to your lungs to inhale. When breathing is continuously stopping and starting, it can significantly reduce the amount of oxygen that reaches your body and your brain and it can have severe consequences.
What negative effects can Sleep Apnea cause?
Sleep Apnea impacts the quality of your sleep, but that can be the least of your worries. Extreme cases of Sleep Apnea can cause plaque in the arteries, chronic fatigue, depression, and can also increase the risk of strokes and heart attacks.
What is a CPAP machine?
A continuous positive airway pressure machine (CPAP) sends a steady flow of pressured air into your mouth and nose as you sleep to help combat Sleep Apnea. With a CPAP machine, your breathing doesn’t pause and you won’t repeatedly wake up in order to resume breathing.
What can help with Sleep Apnea?
There are two main ways to help manage Sleep Apnea, a CPAP machine or a Sleep Apnea appliance. A CPAP machine helps you breathe by blowing air into your lungs and a Sleep Apnea appliance (anti-snoring appliance) moves your jaw forward to open up your windpipe to help you inhale better.
