Snoring and Sleep Disorders Treatment Smart Smile Dentistry, Gainesville, FL

What is snoring?

Snoring is the harsh, vibratory sound that emanates from the throat when air is forced through a narrowed airway during sleep. This narrowing or obstruction is usually caused by sleep apnea, a sleep disorder marked by a collapse of the soft tissues in the throat. For many individuals, a snoring habit can be a major detriment to a person’s health and well-being, not to mention his or her spouse who has to deal with it each night!

What causes snoring?

Airway obstruction can stem from numerous causes. Some people are simply born with a mouth anatomy that is conducive to snoring. This can include having a large tongue, large tonsils or adenoids, an elongated uvula or a small jawbone. For others, a lifestyle factor such as the use of alcohol or sedatives can relax the throat tissues. Obesity, a large neck circumference, allergies and sinus problems can additionally lead to snoring.

What is the best treatment for snoring?

Many patients are able to eliminate snoring by losing weight, sleeping on their sides and giving up alcohol and other relaxants. Others find relief by using nasal strips and obtaining medical treatment for sinus or allergy problems. If these steps don’t do the trick, our Gainesville, Florida dentists can create a custom, form-fitting oral appliance to wear while you sleep. This device pulls the tongue and lower jaw forward, holding them in a position that keeps the airway open for easy breathing and the prevention of snoring.
