Most people with untreated sleep apnea struggle with snoring issues. This can have a serious negative impact on the quality of your sleep which carries over into other aspects of your life. Modern medical science recognizes the challenges of sleep apnea and now there are several treatment options available to you.
It’s important to have the severity of your sleep apnea accurately diagnosed to find the best the treatment option for you. If you happen to suffer from severe sleep apnea you will probably require a positive pressure treatment device or CPAP machine to maintain quality sleep. However, if you have mild to moderate snoring problems, using a prescription snore guard, can help you get the rest you need.
Tongue stabilizing are a type of snore guard preferred by denture wearers, because the unit doesn’t attach to your teeth. The snore guard helps to hold your tongue and soft palate in position to mitigate snoring and improve air flow.
You should clean the snore guard each morning by brushing it with denture polish to remove bacteria and plaque. You can also brush your tongue to clean away bacteria and freshen your breath. Make sure to thoroughly dry the snore guard with a clean paper towel and store it in the case provided.
