Snoring is a problem that affects nearly 45% of men and 30% of women in the United States. Snoring can be caused when the jaw drops during sleep, restricting the airway. You may not think to ask your dentist how to solve this problem, but Dr. Fasano can help with a customized Snore Guard fitting.
Snore Guard is a device that is placed in the mouth to create a free airway, allowing you to breathe well while you sleep. It is safe, effective, and clinically proven to prevent snoring. The Snore Guard features an inner lining that softens when heated, so it can be customized to fit your mouth. The device fits over your top teeth as you sleep and puts your lower jaw in a comfortable forward position. Your airway is kept free so you can breathe easily at night.
This unit is only used for sleeping and to prevent snoring. If you experience issues with teeth clenching and grinding there are special mouth guards available for which we can fit you.
When you visit our Virginia Beach dental office, we will examine you to determine if Snore Guard is right for you, and fit you with the mouthpiece. To learn more about Snore Guard and other cosmetic and restorative dental services, contact us today or request an appointment online.
