sleep apnea and snoring

Sleep apnea  is a sleep disorder in which pauses in breathing or periods of shallow breathing during sleep occur more often than normal. Each pause can last for a few seconds to a few minutes and they happen many times a night. In the most common form, this follows loud snoring. There may be a choking or snorting sound as breathing resumes.  Because the disorder disrupts normal sleep, those affected may experience sleepiness or feel tired during the day.

For this purpose we are offering oral appliances that look similar to the night guards used to prevent teeth grinding, except these devices push the tongue and jaw forward, which makes the airway larger, improves the airflow and activates the muscles in the throat. This also reduces the chance that tissue will collapse and narrow the airway when you sleep. Oral breathing devices can improve sleep quality and reduce snoring.
