Snoring can be experienced as particularly annoying by the partner and keep it out of his sleep, but also the snorer himself by his snoring can have a bad night’s sleep.
n sleep, the muscles, including the tongue and the palate into the airway relax. Some are a part of the pharynx so closely that it is almost close to the inhalation. Because of this narrowing the sleeper begins to breathe through his mouth. Because the sleeper opens his mouth, the tongue slips back towards the throat and airway is thus more closely. The air through the narrowed airway allows the uvula and other flabby parts of the mouth and throat vibrate. This causes the snoring sound.
One of the treatments for snoring and apnea are plastic plates which at night are placed in the mouth. The lower jaw is hereby slightly pushed forward or pulled so that the disturbance of the air flow thereby is lifted. This device is called MRA (Mandibulair Repositie Apparaat) or anti-snoring brace.
DentalFlex (after the prints taken from the upper and lower jaw) will perform a customized anti-snoring brace for you, so you can enjoy your well deserved sleep again.
