A night of deep, restorative sleep is within reach
Sleep apnea is a common breathing disorder, often accompanied by snoring, which can disrupt your sleep. This disorder causes soft tissue in the back of the mouth to partially or fully cover the airway throughout the night. Breathing is paused or becomes shallow, which shifts you out of a deep sleep and into a light, less restful sleep. While this condition affects many people, it can be detrimental to rest levels and should be taken seriously.
Fortunately, with a variety of sleep apnea oral appliances on the market, sleepless nights no longer have to be an issue. Williamsburg Center for Dental Health currently offers the SomnoDent® MAS, a custom-made device consisting of upper and lower dental plates with a unique patented fin-coupling component that allows for normal mouth function. This comfortable, easy-to-use device is similar to an athletic mouth guard, and is designed to hold your lower jaw forward while you sleep. This tightens the muscles of the upper airway to allow easier breathing. The device is also very discreet and allows you to close your lips around it naturally. No clunky, uncomfortable devices or noisy machines--the SomnoDent® MAS is the barely-there mouthpiece that can finally get you back to sleeping without disruptions.
If breathing disruptions are affecting the quality of your sleep, schedule an appointment with us today to talk about whether your snoring could be indicative of sleep apnea. We can help you find a simple solution and get you back to a good night's sleep in no time.
