Are you bothered by a loved one’s snoring that keeps you up at night (or vice-versa)? Southbrook Dental Group can help! We offer custom-fitted snore guards in South Edmonton and the Ellerslie area to alleviate issues such as snoring, fatigue, and sleep apnea.
A snore guard can provide relief from a number of conditions and reduce snoring. If you or a loved one experience loud snoring, excessive daytime fatigue or difficulty concentrating, if you are bothered by a dry mouth when you awaken or are told that you sometimes stop breathing while you sleep, you may be a candidate for a sleep appliance.
In order to provide the best possible fit and result, we will first become acquainted with your needs and discuss what type of sleeping problems you are experiencing. Our process begins with an initial evaluation of your nasal and oral passageways. You will then be referred to a sleep clinic to complete a home sleep study. Once the study results are available, we will examine them and determine if you are a candidate for a snore guard.
The next step is to book an appointment for appliance records. We want to provide you with a snore guard that fits you perfectly and sits comfortably, so an intra-oral exam, photos, and measurements are performed. Your appliance is specifically fitted to your mouth and your needs so that you will feel more rested and snore less. Any final adjustments that are required will be performed and a 6-week follow-up appointment will be scheduled.
If you think a snore guard would be of benefit to you, call us today to book an appointment.
