Cosmetic Periodontal Surgery

At Think Oral Implants and Periodontics, we understand snoring is not just a minor annoyance but a significant health concern for many. It can affect the quality of sleep for both the snorer and their partner, leading to daytime fatigue and long-term health issues. Thankfully, dental professionals are uniquely equipped to offer effective solutions. Here’s how our team can help address snoring issues, paving the way for quieter nights and more restful sleep.

Unraveling the Causes of Snoring

Snoring occurs when the flow of air through the mouth and nose is partially obstructed during sleep. Several factors can contribute to this:

  • Anatomical factors. Such as the shape of your palate, the position of your jaw, or enlarged tonsils.
  • Lifestyle factors. Weight, alcohol consumption, and smoking can all play a role.
  • Sleeping position. Lying on your back can cause the tongue to fall back, narrowing the airway.

Understanding these factors is crucial in tailoring an effective treatment plan.

Dental Solutions for Snoring: Custom Oral Appliances

Think Oral Implants and Periodontics specializes in creating custom oral appliances that are not only effective in reducing snoring but are also comfortable and easy to use. These include:

  • Mandibular advancement devices (MADs). These devices gently push the lower jaw forward, widening the airway at the back of the throat to reduce air resistance and snoring.
  • Tongue retaining devices (TRDs). TRDs help by holding the tongue forward, preventing it from blocking the airway during sleep.
  • The benefits of a custom fit. A key advantage of opting for dental intervention is the ability to have a device custom-fitted to your dental and facial structure, ensuring comfort and maximizing the effectiveness of the treatment.

Comprehensive Treatment Approach

At Think Oral Implants and Periodontics, we believe in a comprehensive approach to treating snoring. This includes:

  • Thorough assessments. We conduct detailed assessments that include sleep history and physical examinations of your jaw alignment and airway structure.
  • Lifestyle modifications. Our team provides guidance on lifestyle changes that can help mitigate snoring, such as weight management, altering sleep positions, and reducing alcohol intake.
  • Continuous support. Our commitment to your health does not end when you receive your device. We offer ongoing support to ensure the appliance continues to meet your needs and adjustments are made as required.

Partnering with Sleep Specialists

For cases where snoring is symptomatic of a more severe condition like obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), we collaborate with sleep professionals to ensure a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses all aspects of the condition.
