How Can I Breathe Easier When I Sleep?

Posted on 7/10/2016 by Fady Ebid
A woman suffering from her husband snoring loudly!Snoring is something that many patients, or rather patient's partners, suffer with.

Snoring can have many negative effects including not getting the oxygen needed or the consistent rest needed.

There are many options available to assist you in getting the night's rest that you need, and of course, it's always best to begin with simple non-surgical, non-invasive techniques first.

Am I snoring?

Without a partner to tell you, you may be unaware if you are snoring while you sleep. There are signs you can look for to indicate snoring.

If you are waking up from a full night of sleep and still feeling exhausted, if you are waking to a dry mouth or soreness in the back of your throat, you may be snoring.

What can I do to reduce my snoring?

There are multiple dental devices that are designed to help increasing your airflow while you sleep. With many variations, most designs fall into one of the two main idea brackets:

•  Similar to a mouthguard worn while playing sports, our dentist can create a night guard, called a mandibular advancement device, for while you sleep. Customized to fit comfortably in your mouth, a night guard is designed to allow for better breathing by forcing your lower jaw slightly down and more forward, allowing air to pass through easier and tremendously improving your breathing while you sleep.
•  For some patients, a tongue retaining device works best. This is a soft silicone appliance designed to bring the tongue forward with gentle suction, this prevents your tongue from falling back against the back of your throat, and helps keep the airway open while you sleep.

If the above ideas do not work, there are larger techniques that can be discussed. The main idea is to allow your body to get the oxygen needed and to get a full night's rest which is interrupted each time the body fails to get the necessary oxygen.
