Snoring Treatment in Tulsa, OK
We all know what snoring sounds like. Many do it every night. It's even the reason that some couples end up sleeping apart. But do you know what causes snoring in the first place, and how it can be treated?
In many cases, snoring is caused by obstruction from the tongue or lower jaw. During sleep, they can block air from getting to the lungs, creating tissue vibrations that cause that familiar sound.
You may have tried an over-the-counter solution like an adhesive breathing strip, but for snoring caused by obstruction, products like these just aren't effective. But thankfully, there is a solution you can trust.
Using a customized oral appliance, our team at Glisten Dental & Sleep Apnea Care can help you create a clear path for air to flow while you sleep. That’s because an oral appliance repositions the tongue and lower jaw. As a result, there’s no barrier to air reaching the lungs.
If you struggle with snoring, please see us for a consultation. Dr. Nauman can talk with you about what might be causing you to snore and whether you may also be struggling with sleep apnea. Snoring is often a sign that a patient needs be treated for both conditions.
