If you or a loved one snores at night, it may be preventing you from getting a good night’s sleep. Dr. Mazin Nakhleh, Dr. Laura Fisher and Dr. Shohreh Sharifi offer snore guards to help you enjoy a soundless night and get the rest you need.

What is a Snore Guard?

A snore guard, also known as a snore appliance or mandibular advancement device (MAD), is a dental device used to help individuals who snore loudly during sleep. It is designed to address snoring issues by repositioning the jaw and tongue to open up the airway and prevent the vibrations in the throat that produce the characteristic sound of snoring. Snore guards are typically custom-made to fit comfortably in a patient’s mouth, ensuring effectiveness and comfort during use.

What Causes Snoring?

Snoring is a common condition that can occur for various reasons, including obesity, nasal congestion, sleep position, alcohol consumption and, most notably, the relaxation of throat muscles during sleep. When the muscles in the throat relax excessively, they partially obstruct the airway, leading to restricted airflow and the production of the snoring sound. Snoring not only disrupts the sleep of the person snoring but also affects the sleep quality of their partner or roommates.

Benefits of Snore Guards

  • Improved Sleep Quality: Snore guards work by repositioning the lower jaw and tongue, preventing airway blockage and reducing or eliminating snoring. This leads to improved sleep quality for both the snorer and their sleep partner or roommates.
  • Enhanced Health: Chronic snoring can be a sign of a condition called sleep apnea, which is associated with serious health risks such as hypertension, heart disease and stroke. Snore guards can reduce the risk of these health issues by addressing snoring and improving airflow.
  • Comfort and Customization: Snore guards are custom-fitted by our dentists, ensuring a comfortable and secure fit. Patients can breathe easily and sleep without discomfort while wearing the device.
  • Noninvasive Solution: Unlike surgical interventions, snore guards provide a noninvasive and reversible solution to snoring. They can be adjusted or discontinued if needed.
  • Increased Energy and Alertness: By reducing snoring and improving sleep quality, snore guards can help individuals wake up feeling more rested and alert, leading to increased daytime energy and productivity.
