Snoring & Sleep Apnea Devices in Surrey
Sleep is essential for our health and well-being, and disruptions to our sleep cycles can significantly impact our bodies. Snoring and sleep apnea are two common sleep disrupters that dental devices can help mediate to provide a better rest for you and your loved ones. If you snore or have sleep disruptions, ask our dentists whether a dental device is right for you.
Why Do I Snore?
Snoring is the result of a partially obstructed airway. When you breathe in and out, your throat vibrates, creating the sound we call “snoring.” People who snore fall on a range of light, sporadic snoring, to regular nightly interruptions that wake themselves up, along with their partner. Shifting positions when you sleep, adjusting your lifestyle, and using a dental device can all help to reduce your snoring.
How Does Sleep Apnea Work?
The way sleep apnea works is that your throat muscles relax too much while you sleep, depleting your oxygen supply causing you to wake during the night. Not everyone remembers these moments of waking up, but if you sleep with a partner, they might let you know about it the next day. Causes of sleep apnea vary from person to person, but an oral device can help you sleep better. Ask our dentists about sleep apnea devices and whether they are right for you.
