The local dentists offer new therapy options to address the causes of snoring and sleep apnea, including orthodontic treatment for dental misalignment and oral appliances that prevent the tongue from blocking the airways during sleep.

Following the update, Snow Family Dentistry’s team encourages patients experiencing symptoms of the condition, such as chronic snoring at night, a dry mouth in the morning, or fatigue throughout the day, to arrange a consultation as soon as possible.
Dr. Snow can diagnose and treat various types of sleep apnea, including the most common variation of the disorder, obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This condition occurs when the muscles that support the soft tissue of the throat relax during sleep, temporarily blocking the airways and preventing regular respiration.
A spokesperson for the dental practice explains how serious the condition can become if left untreated, saying, “Sleep apnea deprives you of the oxygen you need and also makes it impossible to get truly restorative sleep. This may result in chronic fatigue and other adverse effects on your health.”
Research shows that people who experience OSA may suffer from irritability, moodiness, and poor concentration – all consequences of sleep deprivation. The condition has also been linked to cardiovascular issues and type II diabetes.
Dr. Snow’s dentists and orthodontic technicians can create custom dental appliances designed to keep airways open throughout the night, maintaining the body and brain’s access to oxygen. This type of oral device can be prescribed in conjunction with other orthodontic treatment methods, such as clear aligners, in cases when teeth misalignment contributes to snoring.
Snow Family Dentistry’s team develops custom sleep apnea therapy plans that address each patient’s unique circumstances and condition. They are committed to educating patients on their treatment options so they can make informed decisions about their oral health.
