Get A Snoring Mouthpiece In Toronto – Guard Against Potential Health Risks With Possible Easy Treatment Results

Stop Snoring In Toronto with Custom Mouthpiece

There are two surprising facts many people are not aware of with regards to people snoring in Toronto. The first point is that regardless of age, gender or other characteristics almost anyone could have a snoring problem. The second point is that there are potentially serious health risks commonly associated with snoring. However, we have dental snoring solutions with a custom mouthpiece to modify the airway as part of treatment in our Toronto office.

People Most Likely to Snore and In Need of Oral Appliance Therapy

While almost anyone can have a snoring problem, the majority of people who snore are between the ages of 40 and 60. About 60% of people who snore are male.

The Potential Health Problems Associated with Snoring and Poor Sleep

Neither adults nor children should snore. The health problems associated with snoring can be different for adults and children.

Children with Snoring, Sleep or Breathing Issues and Symptoms

Children should not snore. If a child does snore, according to the American Pediatric Society, parents should have their child assessed. Dr. Goodfellow believes this warrants a full investigation into whether there is a sleeping issue or a breathing issue with the child before any treatments are considered.

If children don’t sleep well, then one of the symptoms is they don’t grow well. In addition, children who don’t sleep well may not pay proper attention in school. Getting poor sleep may also cause all sorts of attention problems with children and potentially ADHD. Bed wetting is a common issue potentially connected to a sleeping disorder. Headaches and pain may also be linked to the poor sleep children experience. People in pain don’t sleep well. People who don’t sleep well feel more pain. This goes around and around with pain and sleep deprivation.

Adults who snore, have a sleep disorder, sleep deprivation, or obstructive sleep apnea

When adults snore either the person who snores or the sleeping partner may have difficulty sleeping. When an adult does not get enough quality sleep time, they do not get the proper hormones they need.

The sound that is made when someone snores is due to the vibration of the soft palate (soft tissues) in the mouth and the walls of the throat.

Snoring alone can be very hazardous to your health. If you snore and have the breathing disorder of sleep apnea, that can be even more hazardous to your health. Heart disease and strokes have been linked to this condition.

Sleep apnea is a sleep disorder where a person stops breathing for a short period of time, many times, while sleeping. Whether the person realizes it or not, they are likely not getting a good night of sleep due to this difficulty breathing.

One of the very common results from having sleep apnea is that people feel very tired and fatigued during the day. This can can serous metabolic consequences. It can increase the risk of injury. Some of the more serious potential health risks related to sleep apnea include cancer, cardiovascular disease and an increased risk of mortality.

A Simple Dental Solution to Stop Snoring in Toronto with a Custom Oral Appliance (Mouth Guard)

A snoring mouthpiece Toronto patients’ can slip into their mouth before bedtime will gently reposition the jaw in a way that provides more airflow past the back of the tongue and into the throat while sleeping. These are also referred to as mandibular advancement splints. The complicated technology of a cpap machine (continuous positive airway pressure) is not used. No surgery takes place.

Wearing oral appliances will often stop snoring as soon as the patient uses it so he or she can rest comfortably and sleep better. An improved quality of life often results from consistently better sleep.

We do not deal with customers merely buying a standard mouthpiece off of a store shelf. Each snoring mouthpiece is prepared specifically for each patient. It is customized to adjust the jaw in the way that each patient needs it to be done for them.

During the consultation with a properly trained dentist in our clinic, it may be recommended that the patient has a sleep study performed at one of the recommended sleep clinics. This will determine if the patient also has the more serious condition of obstructive sleep apnea.

Dr. Goodfellow has be treating patients with snoring and sleep apnea with the use of oral appliance therapy since 2005.
