HELP! I Need A Good Nights Sleep!

     I have been happily married for over 20 years to a wonderful man.  In fact, he is the man of my dreams.  The trouble is I am not doing much dreaming.  You see, my knight in shining armor snores!  He snores so much that I find it difficult to sleep. Each night, I stare at the blades of the ceiling fan.  Almost in rhythm with each exhale and spin of the fan, my sweetie lets out a sound that makes me think Darth Vader lives with me.


Snoring can be more than an annoyance.  It can be a sign of greater and or more serious medical problems.  It is very important to see your medical doctor if you or your partner are complaining about snoring.   Though a medical examination and possibly sleep studies, your medical team can determine if you are a candidate for appliances to help keep you healthy and properly rested.

However, if your medical team determines you are in good health, but just closely related to Darth Vader, your dental team can fabricate a small anti-snoring appliance.  This comfortable appliance is worn completely inside the mouth and carefully repositions the lower jaw to allow for a more open airway during sleep.  If you would like more information about snoring appliances, please contact us for a complimentary consultation.

Let’s all enjoy a Good Nights Sleep!
