Dr. Christopher Lim and the team of Hillside Dental in Las Vegas, NV are excited to provide a way to put an end to snoring and get everyone the restful night’s sleep they need!
What causes snoring?
Some patients may just tend to snore. However, sometimes snoring can be a symptom of a bigger problem such as obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea is a sleeping disorder that is triggered by a blockage in the airway. This blockage can make it difficult to breathe. Patients with bed partners are often told that they stop breathing or gasp for breath hundreds of times a night. This affects one’s ability to reach the restorative levels of sleep needed to feel their best every day.
Treating snoring can often be achieved with a special oral appliance. It is worn while sleeping to keep the airways open and reduce snoring. Many patients love treatment using oral appliances because they are:
- Easy to travel with
Oral appliances are custom-made using impressions to ensure a proper fit and improved function. Our dental team works with patients to make sure they enjoy success with treatment before considering alternative solutions.
