Snoring & Sleep Apnea

While snoring is a common problem for many people, it is also one of the key symptoms and signs of sleep apnea. By understanding the relationship between sleep apnea and snoring, our sleep dentist can get you better, more effective treatment.

Snoring can disrupt not only your sleep but also the sleep of your partner. When this occurs, it can cause frustration and fatigue, increasing conflict in your household. Lack of sleep can also cause weight gain and depression, further straining your relationship.

If snoring is disrupting your and your partner’s rest, visit Dr. Mel Pearson for a snore guard in Staten Island, New York. This appliance fits within your mouth, aligning and readjusting the position of the teeth and jaws to eliminate snoring. Using advancing tools, our sleep dentist can provide you with a comfortable oral appliance. Each guard is custom made and much smaller and more portable than a CPAP machine. Also, unlike a CPAP machine, the guard is silent and will not disturb your partner’s sleep!

To start treating your sleep apnea, first complete a sleep study. This will allow your physician to get an accurate diagnosis and allow our sleep dentist to prescribe treatment. Without treatment, your sleep apnea and snoring can negatively impact you and your partner’s quality of life.
