Stop snoring! Effective, comfortable treatment
What causes snoring?
During sleep, the tissues in the back of your throat relax and can obstruct your airway, causing vibrations that create the sound of snoring. While loud snoring is an annoyance that can irritate other members of the household, it is also an indication of a more serious condition known as obstructive sleep apnea.
Dr. Grimshaw treats sleep apnea using customized oral appliances, similar to mouth guards, to keep your airway open during sleep and relieve snoring.
Oral Appliance for comfortable, effective snoring relief
For relief from snoring, Dr. Grimshaw provides oral appliances that are customized to fit your mouth comfortably. They position the lower jaw slightly forward and down, opening up your airway and stopping the vibrations that cause snoring. You can test this by making a snoring sound and moving your jaw forward. You will find that the snoring sound stops.
