IS SNORING AFFECTING YOUR SLEEP?

Snoring is often a sign of a dangerous condition known as Obstructive Sleep Apnea. An oral appliance from Mundo Dentistry can be used to reduce the snoring and associated health risks of Sleep Apnea without medications or surgery.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a condition where the muscles around the tongue and throat relax causing the tissues to block airflow to the lungs while you sleep. Two of the most widely used and most effective treatment options to discuss with your dentist are dental appliances, or mouth-guards and continuous positive airway pressure.

Mouth Devices

Oral appliances may be an effective treatment option if you have mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea. The best treatment for obstructive sleep apnea depends on a number of factors, including the severity of your problem, the physical structure of your upper airway, other medical problems you may have, as well as your personal preference.

CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure)

CPAP blows air with continuous pressure down your throat at night to keep your airways open while you sleep. You should work with your doctor, dentist, or sleep specialist to select the best treatment option for you.
