Oral appliance therapy could be just what you need if your partners’ snoring is keeping you up at night. The Glen Dental Center in Glenview Illinois is a preferred and licensed oral appliance therapy provider that can prevent you from moving to the guest room.
According to Dr. Jeffry Gilmor, snoring affects millions of people all over the United States and the globe.
Before oral appliance therapy patients had to resort to surgery to correct the problem, or deal with an uncomfortable CPAP machine. Although a CPAP is prescribed for people who suffer from sleep apnea, some use the machine to stop snoring as it helps open the passageways.
When you sleep, your body relaxes and so does your throat. When this occurs, it can cause a vibration that makes you snore. If you snore, you have a blockage in your airways and while snoring can be annoying, it can be more serious if your airways are blocking completely. If this is happening to you or your partner, schedule an appointment with your doctor for a sleep study as sleep apnea requires treatment Glen Dental does not offer.
With the help of the Silent Nite® Slide-Link Snore Guard you or your partner can start sleeping soundly as the oral appliance helps move your lower jaw into a more forward position giving you more room in your airways. This helps reduce vibration.
If Dr. Gilmor decides that you are a good candidate for oral appliance therapy using the Glidwell Laboratories Silent Nite® Slide-Link Snore Guard, a mold or impression of your mouth will be made to customize a new oral appliance just for you.
Stop putting your relationship at risk, and call or click and schedule a consultation with Dr. Gilmor for oral appliance therapy. It really can help you get a better nights sleep.
