Many people joke about snoring, but it’s really no laughing matter. Though it has many causes, one can be your mouth position. That’s where Dr. Harris can help. As with every dental issue, she believes simple solutions are often the best. Luckily, a simple guard may be the only solution you’ll need.
If you — and your spouse — want a better night’s sleep, consider a snore guard. It’s just a molded piece of plastic. And it works simply enough! When you put it in your mouth before you fall asleep, it repositions your jaw by pushing it forward to give you a wider airway. With a larger airway, you’ll snore less, and maybe not at all. Simple!
It’s important to note snore guards will not cure severe sleep apnea — a serious medical condition which causes you to stop breathing for short periods while you sleep. However, if you have mild or moderate sleep apnea and can’t use a CPAP machine to treat it, a snore guard can be an effective alternative.
Dr. Harris can help you determine whether you have a simple snoring issue or something more serious that requires a medical exam and treatment from your physician.
If a snore guard is right for you, she’ll custom-fit a guard for you, so it fits comfortably, works consistently, and gives you the results you’re looking for — a good night’s sleep.
It was great, like I have been going to Dr. Sharon Freeland Harris for the past 10 years. The entire staff is great!
