Our experienced dentists offer snoring treatments to help you rest better at night. We are committed to helping you improve your quality of life so that you can enjoy better health and get back into bed with your partner. Snoring is usually caused by obstructions in the airway, such as collapsed tissues in the throat, large tonsils or the tongue rolling back in the throat. As your airway muscles relax during sleep, these obstructions cause the upper airway to become narrower, which results in snoring.
At Allegheny Dental Sleep Center, we understand that many patients (and their partners) find snoring to be a common nighttime annoyance and that it can prevent you from receiving the rest you need. Aside from being an annoyance, snoring can sometimes be a sign of sleep apnea or some other serious sleep-related breathing disorder. This makes it incredibly important that you receive treatment.
To help you and your loved ones sleep peacefully through the night, our dentists provide snoring treatments using oral appliance therapy. Oral appliance therapy works by ensuring that your airway remains open and free from obstruction while you sleep. This is usually done by preventing the tongue from rolling back or by holding your jaw in a forward position that prevents the airway tissues from collapsing.
We have several different dental devices and appliances available, and we will work one-on-one with you to find the treatment that is best for your individual needs. We will perform a thorough screening and discuss your diagnosis and needs with you in order to create a solution tailored specifically for you.
