My spouse snores and keeps me up at night. I have heard a dentist might be able to prescribe an appliance that prevents snoring. Can you help?

Snoring is a sign that your spouse is not breathing properly, and it may cause serious risks to his or her health.

One out of eight people who snore have sleep apnea, a serious medical condition that increases risks of heart attack and stroke. Individuals with sleep apnea don’t realize it, but while they sleep, the oxygen flow to the brain and heart stops completely for up to ten seconds. This can cause serious damage to the body, in addition to causing daytime drowsiness and irritability.

A sleep study will reveal whether your spouse has a snoring or sleep apnea issue.

Treatment generally falls into three categories: medical, dental, and surgical.

Medical treatment involves a bedside air generator, which is connected to a facial mask that delivers a constant flow of air to the lungs. This is known as continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP). For individuals with CPAP intolerance, custom oral appliances have been developed and can be prescribed by Dr. Nguyen. This treatment is known as oral appliance therapy (OAT). The third option is surgery or a combination of surgeries that may include jaw repositioning or removal of excess throat tissue.
