You may not think about visiting your dentist to treat snoring or sleep apnea, but Dr. John Cutting of Edgewater Dental Arts can provide treatment to minimize snoring and improve symptoms of sleep apnea.
About Snoring and Sleep Apnea
Millions of people snore and though it isn’t always a serious condition, snoring can be a sign of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), a condition that causes a person to temporarily stop breathing. Sleep apnea has the potential to lead to serious problems because of decreased oxygen to the brain and heart.
Dr. Cutting can create a snore appliance, similar to a sports mouth guard that will help to keep the airway open while you sleep and prevent snoring. The snore guard is customized to fit comfortably in your mouth and limit the movement of the tongue to the back of the throat.
