Excessive snoring and breathing interruptions from sleep apnea often results in poor sleep quality, and can have a negative impact on your quality of life. In recent years, sleep apnea treatment options have improved. While people with severe sleep apnea might need to sleep with a CPAP machine, people with mild to moderate sleep apnea might find relief from an oral appliance when they go to bed.
By law, a high-quality snore guard must be prescribed by a physician, orthodontist, or another oral health care professional. It’s important to have your sleep apnea accurately diagnosed to make sure you are using the most effective treatment options.
Mandibular advancement snore guards come in several styles and designs. Many of the popular snore guards attach to the teeth and hinge together. These snore guards are designed to hold your mouth and soft palate in the ideal position to allow easy passage of air, thus reducing snoring problems.
