Snoring is a common sleeping problem that may affect up to 50 percent of the population. When someone snores he emits loud, disruptive sounds while sleeping that can make it difficult to get a restful night of slumber. If you have been told that you snore loudly by a friend or family member, learn more about this issue and how getting a Northeast Indianapolis snoring appliance from Dr. Jack Nicewander may help.

Snoring Problems

Snoring is a problem mostly because of the noise, but it can also cause problems with your breathing. When you fall asleep, the tongue and throat relax. The throat becomes narrower, so that when you breathe in it vibrates. People who snore have narrower airways -- the smaller it is, the louder the vibration. In extreme cases the passageway will completely close, forcing the snorer to wake up suddenly throughout the night. This is called sleep apnea, a condition that needs to be addressed if the patient wants to have a normal night of sleep.
Snoring doesn’t just affect the patient -- it also affects his family members. Getting a snoring appliance is beneficial to everyone in the household.

What Is a Snoring Appliance?

Experienced dentists like Dr. Nicewander can design and prescribe what is called a snoring appliance to correct these sleeping problems. A snoring appliance is a special tray that you wear while sleeping that adjusts the position of the jaw so that helps reduce or prevent snoring activity. There are dozens of different varieties of snoring appliances -- some that fit on one row of teeth, some on both and some that go over the tongue. One is just right for your specific case.
