Snoring is often a symptom of decreased airway space. During sleep, muscles and soft tissue in the throat and mouth relax, making the breathing airway smaller and increasing the velocity of the air. This often results in soft tissue vibration, which is commonly referred to as snoring.
Surgical techniques to remove or alter these vibrating soft tissues have shown only moderate success. For the majority of those needing snoring treating, we offer snoring appliances in Allentown, Pennsylvania. This is an affordable, non-invasive, comfortable and effective solution.
We often recommend the Silent Nite® anti-snoring device. This proven and high-quality oral appliance has transparent, flexible upper and lower forms that cover the teeth in each arch. It is custom-fitted to your mouth, making it comfortable to wear and allowing you to still move your jaw. Special connectors between the upper and lower arches pull the lower jaw forward. The device then allows uninhibited oral breathing and promotes deeper, more restful sleep, while still preventing snoring.
