Snoring can disrupt your sleep and day-to-day life and can be more than just an inconvenience.

It also can negatively impact your health. In many cases, snoring can even be a symptom of sleep apnea. At Sleep Better Des Moines, our sleep professionals offer a dental approach to treating snoring and addressing the root issue.

Our team provides effective treatment to snoring by diagnosing snoring and offering oral devices.

Understanding Snoring

Snoring is the result of partial airway obstruction during sleep, causing vibrations in the throat’s relaxed tissues. Although occasional snoring is common, chronic and loud snoring can indicate underlying issues such as sleep apnea, leading to disrupted sleep and potential health concerns. Addressing persistent snoring is essential for better sleep and overall health.

Snoring can lead to several health issues if untreated. The vibration and obstruction in the airway not only disrupt your sleep but can also increase the risk of developing more severe conditions, including obstructive sleep apnea. Over time, this can result in daytime fatigue, high blood pressure, and cardiovascular problems.

Why You Should Treat Snoring

Treating snoring is a worthwhile investment in yourself and your health. Here are some of the benefits of effectively treating this condition:

Improved sleep

Better ability to sleep with a partner

Mood improvements during the day

Lower risk of future health complications

Improved cognition

Snoring treatment is about more than just addressing an inconvenience for you and your partner. Treating this disorder allows you to keep your health on track and avoid long-term risks.

Oral Device Therapy for Snoring

Oral device therapy is a highly effective and non-invasive approach to address snoring, designed to ensure a better and healthier night of sleep for you and your partner.
This therapy utilizes specialized devices that are designed to keep your airway open during sleep, thus preventing the vibrations and obstructions that cause snoring.

Some devices work by repositioning your lower jaw and tongue to help maintain an open airway and are custom-fitted to your mouth for comfort and efficacy. Others focus on holding the tongue in place to prevent it from falling back and obstructing the throat.
These FDA-approved oral devices are custom-fitted to your mouth for comfort, helping to maintain an open airway and prevent airway blockage, thus reducing snoring and enhancing your sleep quality. By opting for this therapy, you can enjoy quieter and more restful nights, improving your overall quality of life.

Our sleep professionals custom-make these devices to meet your anatomical needs.

Is snoring the same thing as sleep apnea?
Snoring and sleep apnea have overlapping symptoms, but they are not the same. Snoring is a common condition that produces a noisy sound when air flows past relaxed tissues in the throat, causing vibrations during sleep. Sleep apnea is a disorder that has repeated pauses or sleep apnea events in breathing during sleep due to a temporary blockage of the airway. Loud snoring is often a symptom of sleep apnea. However, snoring does not mean that an individual has sleep apnea. A medical evaluation and an at-home sleep test can allow our sleep professionals to put together an accurate diagnosis. We offer oral device therapy as a treatment plan.
