Sleep apnea is a serious sleep disorder afflicting an estimated 40 million Americans every year. Chronic symptoms often include snoring and breathing interruption while sleeping. Professional diagnosis is important for determining the most effective method to remediate symptoms.
Individuals suffering from severe sleep apnea often need to sleep with positive air pressure via a CPAP machine. If you suffer from mild-to-moderate sleep apnea, you might find symptom relief from a prescription night guard from Ontario Chino Dental Center.
Denture wearers with minor-to-moderate sleep apnea often find relief from a tongue-stabilizing device. The unit doesn’t need to attach to teeth in any way. It helps hold your tongue and soft palate in position to mitigate snoring and improve air flow.
You will need to clean the snore guard every morning by brushing it with denture polish to remove any plaque or bacterial residue. You can also brush your tongue to clean away bacteria and freshen your breath. Make sure to thoroughly dry the snore guard with a clean paper towel and store it in the case provided.
If you live in the Ontario, California, area and you’ve been suffering with sleep apnea, you should call 909-984-2476 to explore your nightguard treatment options with Dr. Krupakar Reddy Yeturu.
