Find out how a simple dental appliance can improve your teeth grinding and sleep apnea symptoms.
Whether you are living with sleep apnea, teeth grinding, or both, your dentist, Dr. Pauline Lu, offers the Silent Night Snore Guard, which can combat your snoring and obstructive sleep apnea in San Jose, CA, while also protecting teeth from wear and tear of teeth grinding. If teeth grinding is impacting the health and strength of your teeth, this snore guard might be able to improve your sleep and protect your teeth at the same time.
How does the Silent Night snore guard work?
Instead of turning to CPAP therapy or surgery to treat obstructive sleep apnea in San Jose, CA, or nighttime bruxism, our dental team can easily and non-invasively treat these issues with a simple dental device. By wearing this appliance over your teeth, not only does it provide a protective barrier over your teeth but it also keeps airways open.
The Silent Night oral appliance is a mandibular therapy device, which means that it places and holds the jaws in a slightly forward position that prevents airways in the back of the throat from collapsing and causing an obstruction. This is how this device works to improve airflow and manage symptoms associated with obstructive sleep apnea while you’re asleep.
What are the benefits of this sleep appliance?
The Silent Night oral appliance is custom-fitted to your mouth, which means that it will provide an exact comfortable fit. It will also help you manage your obstructive sleep apnea symptoms. You will wake up feeling refreshed and your teeth will also be protected in case you grind or clench your teeth at night.
Who can benefit from the Silent Night snore guard?
This device is great for treating snoring alone or as a result of obstructive sleep apnea. If you’ve been told that you have sleep apnea, or you snore, this device may be able to help. If you’ve also been told that you have nighttime bruxism, this device is another way to protect and preserve your teeth, preventing the eventual wear, tear, and potential damage to teeth that can occur over time.
