Snoring Devices & Sleep Apnea Devices in St. Albert

Snoring may not only disturb your partner, but it can also cause serious health problems for you. If you are suffering from mild to moderate sleep apnea, your dentist may recommend the use of an oral device to alleviate the problem and help you get a peaceful night’s sleep.

How Do Oral Devices Work?

During sleep, the muscles located at the back of your throat tend to relax, resulting in the narrowing of the airway. This can cause breathing problems and snoring. Oral appliances can provide relief by holding the lower jaw forward and opening up the airway, allowing more air to enter when you breathe.

Why Do I Need a Custom-Made Appliance?

For those suffering from snoring or sleep apnea, custom-made oral appliances are more effective than over-the-counter alternatives. These appliances are designed to fit comfortably over the upper and lower teeth, helping to hold the jaw forward, opening up the airway, and leading to a more restful night’s sleep.
