About 90 million Americans suffer from snoring activity during sleep. Dental Care Associates offers Silent Nite®, a device that can help alleviate these types of sleep problems and allow you to get a restful night’s sleep.
What causes snoring?
Snoring is caused by turbulent airflow through narrowed airways of the nose and throat. This restricted airflow causes the tissues of these areas to vibrate, sometimes very loudly. Snoring can be affected by sleep stages, sleeping position, obesity and the use of medications and alcohol.
Snoring can be quite bothersome, not only to the person who snores, but also to his or her partner. Relationships can suffer if a partner becomes annoyed about not being able to sleep or having to sleep in a separate room.
Silent Nite® is a custom-fabricated dental device that positions the lower jaw forward, increasing space in the airway and reducing soft tissue vibration. It consists of a soft inner layer, covered by a hard outer layer that is durable and BPA-free. This affordable device is flexible, thin and comfortable, and is effective for alleviating or even preventing the disruptive effects of snoring. Its custom fit works by allowing small movements of the jaw while you are sleeping, which facilitates uninhibited oral breathing.
