Snoring can be an annoying problem, especially for your spouse. Although you probably do not think you snore, there is approximately a 45% chance that you do. Snoring can be a sign of a serious medical condition like sleep apnea, or it may just be an annoyance. When you snore, it interrupts the deep sleep you need to recuperate. Snoring starts as your body starts to relax. When the muscles and tissues in the back of you through go slack, they sometimes interfere with air passing through your mouth and nose to your lungs, giving off those rattling sounds. Snoring typically worsens as you age and if not treated may lead to some serious health problems, like:
- High blood pressure
- Daytime fatigue
If you feel tired throughout the day, it may be because your nights are not as restful as they should be. With a snore guard mouthpiece fitted by a dentist, you can reduce snoring and improve your breathing at night. With a snore guard fitted by your dentist, the mouth is kept in such a position to open up the airway for sufficient airflow. The nights will be more restful for you and your partner.
