A snore guard is a small device that is custom-made to fit over your teeth while you sleep. The guard is designed to keep your lower jaw (mandible) in a natural, comfortable, slightly-forward position, keeping your airway open and clear of mouth and throat tissues that cause snoring. A custom snore guard can help you eliminate snoring, and even treat mild to moderate cases of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
If you or your loved one snores incessantly, especially if you believe sleep apnea may be involved, then consult with your family dentist as soon as possible to receive an accurate diagnosis. Your dentist can help you determine if a snore guard can help you finally rest peacefully.
