What is Snoring Therapy?

For some people, snoring at night can take over your whole day. It can affect your sleep patterns and your partner’s, causing tremendous fatigue and other issues.

Your dentist at Midtown Dentistry can help you find a solution for snoring.

If you’re looking for a Houston, Texas snoring specialist, Midtown Dentistry can create a snoring therapy device designed to help you sleep soundly through the night.

Midtown Dentistry dentists are experienced with the causes of snoring and can create a comfortable, removable device that will inhibit your snoring. Let our snoring therapy dentists help you get a peaceful night’s rest.

Snoring and excessive daytime sleepiness are indications of obstructive sleep apnea, a sleep disorder that limits respiratory airflow and intermittently disrupts breathing.

Obstructive sleep apnea may put your heart at risk. If left untreated, it is a risk factor for atrial fibrillation, high blood pressure, strokes, all signs of cardiovascular disease. Treating obstructive sleep apnea can decrease the risks for cardiovascular disease and improve heart performance.

WHY DO SOME PEOPLE SNORE?

There are many reasons why people snore. Snoring can occur when there are large structures in the throat which can range from tonsils to a long or soft palate.

Your muscles relax as you sleep, it causes the airway to narrow and close in on the structures within your throat, resulting in partially obstructing the airflow as you breathe.

As the air passes through your throat and reaches the obstructions, instead of flowing over them, they vibrate — and this causes that loud snoring sound.

Excess fat deposits can also contribute to narrowing the airway as you sleep and can cause snoring.
