Snoring and Sleep Apnea Devices in Winnipeg
When something is standing between you and a great night of rest, it can be frustrating.
Snoring and sleep apnea are conditions that affect a patient’s sleep, but they can also have more serious short and long-term effects on general health. Vista Place Dental provides patients with a selection of highly effective dental devices that minimize snoring and sleep apnea, contributing to better sleep and better overall health.
Snoring is the sound you hear when the relaxed tissues of your soft palate vibrate as air passes by. It occurs for a variety of reasons, including age, weight, nasal and sinus issues, alcohol consumption, medications, sleep positions, and the shape of your mouth and airways. Many Canadians snore regularly, which causes multiple interruptions to sleep throughout the night. The various types of dental devices for snoring correct the position of the mouth, bringing the jaw forward to open the air passages. This leads to better airflow, less noise, and a better night of sleep! If you snore, be sure to ask your doctor about snoring devices. You may also want to be tested for sleep apnea, a more serious condition that is sometimes associated with snoring.
Sleep Apnea Devices
Sleep apnea is a nighttime breathing disorder that leads to repetitive pauses in breathing. When the brain is deprived of oxygen for an extended period of time, it sends a signal to the nervous system, causing the person to wake up (often with a snort or gasp). If you have mild to moderate sleep apnea, our dentists can help by providing devices designed to open your air passage while you sleep.
