Snoring can disrupt your sleep, leaving you exhausted. Over time, sleep deprivation can cause long-term health problems. Fortunately, snoring can be treated with a dental appliance.
Snoring is caused by vibrations in the airway and tissues in the nose and throat. It usually occurs after the throat muscles relax during sleep, but it can be caused by other conditions such as an obstruction in the nasal passage, a misaligned jaw, or fat build up around the throat. Snoring can be treated by the use of a dental appliance that you wear in your mouth while you're asleep.
