Dr. Bret Dyer talks about snoring and some lesser known solutions.
A Simpler Solution To Snoring
Do you suffer from snoring? CPAP’s are not the only solution! Dr Dyer and the team at Fort Bend Periodontics and Implantology offer an alternative that can eliminate snoring with a non invasive device.
An estimated 90 million Americans snore, and half of those suffer from sleep apnea. While snoring is disruptive for you and your spouse, it’s also bad for your health. According to the Mayo Clinic snoring can lead to:
- Daytime sleepiness
- Frequent frustration or anger
- Difficulty concentrating
- A greater risk of high blood pressure, heart conditions and stroke
- An increased risk of behavior problems
- An increased risk of motor vehicle accidents due to lack of sleep
While you may be familiar with a CPAP it’s important to understand other options, including those from your dentist.
Dr. Dyer and his staff at Fort Bend Periodontics & Implantology are proud to offer the Elastic Mandibular Advancement (EMA). This noninvasive treatment is custom fitted and removable. The device is designed to push the lower jaw slightly forward and open your bite to allow for less restricted airflow during sleep. This not only eliminates snoring but also promotes a deeper and more restful sleep.
EMA devices help promote deeper, more restful sleep by preventing snoring and relieving the symptoms of sleep apnea. The EMA does not interfere with breathing through the mouth, even in cases of congested nasal passages. The EMA device is intended for patients with either a full or partial set of natural teeth, and sufficient height is required for the device to stay in place.
