Snoring Prevention

Spouse Snoring? Don't Get Angry, We Can Help

While snoring is a common problem for many people, it can also be a major sign of other complications that can affect your health. It is estimated that more than 80 million people in North America snore while sleeping, which not only affects the quality of sleep that the snoring person gets, but also their loved ones, such as spouses, children, and other family members. Luckily, the Napa dental office of dentist Silverado Dental Care can help treat chronic snoring.

What Causes Snoring?

Snoring can be the result of several factors. Typically, snoring is caused by the relaxing of the muscles and soft tissues in the throat and mouth, making the airway passage smaller. The decrease in space through the airway makes it harder for each breath to get through, and when it does get through the airway passage, it moves over the soft tissues in the mouth and throat, causing a vibration that results in the snoring sound.

Other causes of snoring may include:

What is a Mandibular Advancement Device?

If you snore at night, then a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) may represent a solution and a better night’s sleep! The MAD is a specially designed dental device to be worn at night as it gently helps keep the lower jaw, or mandible, in a forward position, increasing the space between the airway passage, helping you breathe better and get a full, quiet night’s sleep.

A small plastic device worn in the mouth during sleep to prevent the soft throat tissues from collapsing and obstructing the airway, the Mandibular Advancement Devices provided by Napa dentist Silverado Dental Care brings your lower jaw forward and may also lift your soft palate to allow for a quiet night's rest. Some devices also stop the tongue from falling back over your windpipe. Call Silverado Dental Care at (707) 240-8287 to schedule your appointment to fit these special appliances to meet your individual condition.

Is a MAD comfortable?

The answer is simple — YES! A Mandibular Advancement Device is made to be comfortable so that you can sleep without even noticing you’re wearing it. It does not prevent you from breathing with your mouth open and will even eliminate snoring for patients with sinus congestion or allergies. You may experience some slight stiffness of the jaw for the first few mornings after wearing the device, however this feeling is only temporary and will go away after waking up and removing the device.

To learn more about a mandibular advancement device, contact the Napa dental office of Silverado Dental Care and schedule an appointment and consultation. A better night’s sleep starts here!

Morgan

"My husband and I have been going here for years. Not only is everyone amazing but they truly care about your well being before, during and after procedures. God bless ANY dentist that will answer his own phone on a weekend. Dr. Ringard just helped me at 10am on a Saturday morning. I'd recommend them to anyone!"

Carrie

"I have been searching and searching for the perfect dentist office. It is much like trying to find a decent boyfriend. At first they are sweet are lure you in, but then all of a sudden they turn on you and you can't trust them anymore. Well...Silverado Dental Care is like the prince charming of dental care in Napa.
The team here is so wonderful and warm, from the moment I walked into the office I fell in love. I highly recommend Silverado Dental Care, and will never leave their trusting side.
They fixed a cracked veneer, cleaned, and polished my pearly whites all while I sit comfortably in a tempur-pedic chair watching Planet Earth.
Much like the rest of the population, I do not like going to the dentist; but do not fear!! Silverado Dental Care is here!"
