An estimated 80 million people in North America snore. Taking into account the snorer’s spouse and children, as many as 160 million people are negatively affected by snoring. Snoring not only interrupts your sleep cycle, it can also be a symptom of a condition called Sleep Apnea.
Fortunately, there are cost-effective oral appliances for snoring that dentists can prescribe to their patients. These appliances help reduce or eliminate snoring by moving the lower jaw forward, opening the airway to allow air to flow more freely. These devices have had documented clinical success in mitigating or even preventing the disruptive, unhealthy effects of snoring and often sleep apnea.
