Sleep apnea is a common health issue in the world today interrupting many people’s restful nights. An improper soft palate position and the sleep apnea condition can cause poor sleep quality and impact your overall quality of life. This is why, if you suffer from mild-to-moderate sleep apnea in Dallas, Texas, you should call Dr. Jason Roe to schedule an appointment.
How a Snore Guard Helps Sleep Apnea
Dr. Roe can address your sleep apnea issues by creating a snore guard just for you and encouraging you to wear it at night. These snore guards are also called tongue-stabilizing snore guards and they don’t cling or attach to the teeth in any way.
This makes it possible for denture wearers to improve their sleep and treat their sleep apnea. This appliance can hold the tongue and soft palate in place to alleviate snoring and improve the flow of air.
How to Care For a Snore Guard
If you decide to utilize a snore guard, then you need to clean and care for it every day. To help you do so, our dental team at Pro Dental Dallas encourages you to brush it every morning with denture polish.
This helps remove bacteria and plaque. It’s also important to brush your tongue to wash away bacteria and freshen your breath. When you’re done washing your snore guard, thoroughly dry it with a clean paper towel. Then, put it in its case and keep it in a safe place.
