Snoring and sleep apnea are two very common issues that can usually be cured with the use of dental appliances. Snoring is a shaking of the throat caused by a closed airway, usually because of relaxation of the throat muscles during sleep.
Snoring can be a sign of a more serious condition called sleep apnea. With sleep apnea, a patient’s throat actually closes for a period of 5 to 30 seconds during sleep.
Both of these conditions can be curbed or alleviated by a professional dentist.back
