Snoring Devices & Sleep Apnea Devices

Oral Devices for Snoring and Sleep Apnea in North York

Sleep is essential for our health and wellbeing, and when a condition stands in the way, we often look for any solution. Many people don’t think to ask their dentists about oral devices for snoring and sleep apnea, but we have plenty of options available to assist. If you or your partner is worried about your at-night breathing habits, ask us about how we can help you breathe easier and get a full and restorative night of rest.

Snoring Devices

The noise we associate with snoring occurs when the soft palate of the mouth vibrates as airflow moves across it. Typically, the position of a snorer’s mouth restricts the flow and direction of the air, causing the noise. Snoring can be corrected quite easily by rearranging the position of the mouth using an oral device. Our mandibular advancement devices bring the lower jaw forward to open up the air passages. Or, tongue retaining devices can grip the tongue and bring it forward, relieving snoring for snorers who typically sleep on their backs.

Sleep Apnea Devices

Sleep apnea can be a very serious condition when left untreated. People with sleep apnea often experience a lack of pressure in their airways, causing them to stop breathing for periods of time. This usually happens multiple times throughout the night and can cause the sleeper to wake suddenly, interrupting the sleep cycle. For people with mild to moderate sleep apnea, we can offer simple oral devices that structure the mouth for optimal airflow.
