Snoring is one of the more common symptoms associated with sleep apnea and leads to a host of other issues, including poor quality sleep. If you suffer from mild to moderate sleep apnea, you could find relief from snoring problems by using a prescription snore guard at night. Your dentist can help you select the right type of snore guard for you.
A prescription snore guard helps maintain ease of breathing, allowing you to snore less and sleep through the night. While are several different designs, most snore guards fall into one of two categories.
Tongue Stabilizing Devices or TSD’s do not need to be attached directly to your teeth. This makes them an effective solution for people with dentures.
Mandibular Advancement Devices or MAD’s come in several styles and designs. Some units might have hinges, while others are made from a boil and bite thermoplastic compound. With routine maintenance and care they can provide you with relief from sleep apnea for a long time to come
