Las Vegas area dentist offers snoring treatment solution
A common sleeping disorder that is often difficult to diagnose is obstructive sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea causes the airways to close during the night and results in the inability to breathe. Patients with this sleeping disorder will wake up hundreds of times each evening, causing them never to reach the stages of restorative sleep. This causes many side effects including daytime fatigue, chronic headaches, and reduced memory and concentration.
Dr. Christopher Lim of Hillside Dental in Las Vegas also finds that patients with obstructive sleep apnea tend to snore. Snoring is an issue that can even occur without obstructive sleep apnea. Patients who are dealing with snoring can actually find a solution with their dentist.
Snoring treatment at Hillside Dental often requires the use of an oral appliance. An oral appliance is a special mouth guard that patients can wear to keep the airways open and allow snoring to be reduced. It can only help patients sleep better and gives their sleeping partners a chance to get a good night’s rest as well!
Our oral appliances are custom-made using impressions of the teeth. A dental laboratory fabricates the mouth guards and then sends them to Hillside Dental for patients to pick up. They are easy to care for and simple to clean, allowing patients to maintain them for many years before needing replacements.
