Sleep apnea is a serious breathing condition afflicting the sleep quality in millions of Americans. Two of the most common symptoms include, issues with snoring and breathing interruption while sleeping. In some cases a prescription snore guard mouthpiece can improve these symptoms and give you back the quality sleep you need to be at your very best.
It’s important to note that before exploring your treatment options you should have your sleep apnea accurately diagnosed. If it happens that you suffer from severe sleep apnea it will likely require a positive pressure treatment device or CPAP machine to mitigate your symptoms. However, mild to moderate sleep apnea can often be treated by a prescription snore guard from Desert Dental Group.
Tongue stabilizing are a type of snore guard preferred by denture wearers, because the unit doesn’t attach to your teeth. The snore guard helps to hold your tongue and soft palate in position to mitigate snoring and improve air flow.
You should clean the snore guard each morning by brushing it with denture polish to remove bacteria and plaque. 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.
