If you snore, you may notice that you do not sleep quite as restfully as you used to, or perhaps your partner complains of the noise. At Kizer Dental Associates, we offer snore guards to minimize snoring and help you and your family sleep more peacefully. Snoring is generally caused by airway obstructions during sleep. The airway obstructions may be caused by your tongue falling to the back of your mouth or by a collapsed airway. In certain cases, snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea, which is also caused by airway obstructions and involves pauses in breathing during sleep. If you snore loudly, we encourage you to be tested for sleep apnea to ensure that you stay in good health.
A snore guard works by holding your jaw, tongue, or both in a position that prevents airway obstructions. In this way, a snore guard minimizes snoring and allows you to sleep peacefully through the night. Our experienced dentists, Dr. Kizer and Dr. Smith, will ensure that your snore guard in Germantown, Tennessee fits comfortably and effectively. If you snore, we urge you to contact us today to learn more about snore guards and how we can give you a better night’s rest!
