Mason Snoring Treatment Dentist

Sleep like a baby with better oral health

Do you snore a lot?

Snoring can be normal. But when it’s loud and raucous snoring, or it’s interrupted by pauses in breathing, it could be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder in which your breathing stops and starts, over and over. If you’re still tired after a full night’s sleep, or if your roommate or partner tells you you snore loudly, you might be suffering from sleep apnea.

In any case, excessive snoring can be inconvenient to those you live with, and may point to more serious health concerns. Call (513) 449-8619 today to schedule a consultation for treatment for your snoring issues.

Dental problems may be connected to chronic snoring

Snoring is what others hear when you can’t breathe freely in sleep. It’s usually due to some blockage or narrowing of the airways in your nose, mouth, or throat. The tissues of the restricted airway vibrate as you breathe, causing that loud snoring sound.

Because of the lack of oxygen due to tight airways, people who snore tend to breathe through their mouths. This puts them at risk for these dental issues:

N

Enlarged tonsils and adenoids

N

Bruxism, or teeth grinding (causing wear and fracture of teeth)

N

Jaw joint disorders

N

Erosion of the teeth and tooth decay

N

Periodontal disease (or gum disease)

If you suffer from chronic snoring, consider discussing possible treatment options with our specialists early on to avoid further complications.

How we could help treat chronic snoring

Yes, even dentists can help with snoring problems! Here are several ways our dental professionals might offer to help you snore less and sleep better, while improving your dental health.

Oral Appliance

Oral appliances are an effective way to reduce and even stop snoring. Custom-fit, you’ll wear this appliance like a retainer or mouthguard while sleeping.

Snoring prevention is crucial, as chronic snoring can lead to multiple health concerns, including tooth decay. Book an appointment with our professional, experienced dentists today to explore what we have to offer to help you get a good night’s sleep again!

CPAP Machine

A CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine is the most effective option for relieving dangerous and severe sleep apnea symptoms. Worn over your face at night, the CPAP machine will gently adjust your lower jaw, opening your airway and preventing obstruction.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dental Snoring Treatments

What’s the connection between snoring and dental health?
One of the most common side effects of Sleep Apnea is clenching and grinding of the teeth. When we have an event where we stop breathing, our body triggers us to clench and grind our teeth in order to trigger us to take a deep breath.

One of the most important things we can do is to rule out Sleep Apnea. If untreated, it can take up to 10 years off your life and puts you at high risk for a heart attack or stroke.

At Cedar Village Dentistry, we have the ability to allow our patients to perform a Home Sleep Study and have their results by a sleep physician.

How do I know if I have a snoring problem?

The quickest way? Ask your partner or roommate what your snore sounds like, or whether there are pauses in your breathing. But if that’s not possible, see if you experience some of these symptoms of sleep apnea:

 

  • Awakening with a dry mouth
  • Morning headache
  • Difficulty staying asleep (insomnia)
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness (hypersomnia)
  • Difficulty paying attention while awake
  • Irritability
