There you are in the middle of the night. Awake again. You can’t sleep because of the chronic snoring. Since snoring and airflow go hand-in-hand, it makes sense that the perfect solution would be to reach out to a professional. Should you call the doctor NOPE! Call the DENTIST!
The Snoring Connection
Sleep is essential for replenishing the body. Regardless of who is afflicted with the condition, having a chronic snorer in the family can make for less sleep for everyone. Lack of sleep can contribute to high blood pressure and heart disease, but it also drains you physically with fatigue.
Your Dentist and Your Health.
Bottom line: having a chronic snoring condition is bad on your teeth, too. Chronic snoring creates the perfect condition for “dry mouth”, which is the leading cause of:
- Dental Infections
- Tooth Decay
While dentists specialize in oral health, they know that many common underlying health issues, such as chronic snoring, can be detected in the mouth and can offer solutions for more than just the health of your mouth, but for the health of your body, too.
What are My Options?
That’s the best news. There are many! Some dental devices help chronic snoring by gently changing the shape of the tissue and muscle to assist in airflow while sleeping. These keep your tongue from falling over your windpipe to keep your airflow steady.
Other dental devices work to gently move the jaw forward to increase thej space between the passageways for a better-quality sleep, without chronic snoring.
Breathe Better Today
Choosing to take action to breathe better and sleep better is an important step. The same dental devices that help correct the chronic snoring condition are the same devices that can improve your overall health. If you’re breathing right, that’s the first step to sleeping right and decreasing your chances of developing chronic health conditions, including stroke.
