If you don`t have good oral health, it can be the reason for your Sleep Apnea.
You can sometimes find early signs of a sleep disorder by visiting your Dentist.
The first sign of having sleep apnea is tooth grinding (bruxism). Grinding can cause tooth wear and breakage as well as inflamed and receding gums.
A spike in cavities can also be a sign of grinding.
Sometimes mouth`s anatomy and sinuses and Sometimes the eruption of the wisdom teeth can be the reason for snoring.
When the tooth has partially erupted, this causes a flap of tissue to become infected and swollen.
Because of this condition, patients may sleep with their mouth open, leading to snoring.
Snoring also can be caused by a number of factors like allergies, a cold, overweight, or alcohol consumption.
Other risk factors that contribute to what causes snoring include the following:
Being male, Being 40 years of age or older, Pregnancy and family history of snoring.
There are approved oral appliances available to help with snoring.
Your dentist can make you a custom snoring device, but only after you have been officially diagnosed with an oral problem. This oral appliance is a device that fits like a retainer and looks like a mouth guard. It supports your jaw and tongue to maintain an open upper airway.
There are several benefits to using a custom-made snoring device over store-bought ones, including:
– The device is much more effective than any prefabricated one because
it’s specially designed for your mouth.
– A custom snore guard will last definitely longer than that one you can get over the counter.
– They are portable, so you can take them with you while traveling.
– Oral appliances are far more comfortable than wearing a mask!
