I need to stop snoring I have a problem with snoring, I have tried the following...I only drink water after dinner, I don't smoke before bed, and I am currently using the nasal strips but my relationship with my girlfriend is falling apart because I snore

I need to stop snoring I have a problem with snoring, I have tried the following...I only drink water after dinner, I don't smoke before bed, and I am currently using the nasal strips but my relationship with my girlfriend is falling apart because I snore

Snoring,: Snoring, though frequently associated with sleep apnea, is not always amenable to treatment by an oral appliance. Snoring is frequently due to elongation of the soft palate (roof of mouth) or due to the loss of tone of this tissue. Most treatments are aimed at shortening or stiffing the soft palate.

Oral appliances are usually designed to position the lower jaw forward to open the lower airway and typically do not address the tissues of the roof of the mouth.

An assessment by a obstructive sleep apnea team should be performed to rule out the presence of sleep apnea which sometimes is associated with snoring. These teams are usually affiliated with a regional medical center / hospital. They will perform a history and physical to determine if there are any medical / pharmacological causes for your symptoms. You will be asked to undergo a sleep study to determine the presence of sleep apnea and to determine its severity and to further rule out causes. An apnea / hypopnea index will be determined.

Depending upon the severity of the sleep apnea you will be offered treatment solutions by this team. Usually a trial of CPAP is encouraged. Occasionally an oral appliance or surgery may be recommended.

There are many types of oral sleep apnea appliances, each having their proponents. Typically, if an oral appliance is required, it is custom fabricated by either a dentist or oral and maxillofacial surgeon. You should seek care from a dentist / oral and maxillofacial surgeon who is board certified by their respective specialties and has an affiliation with your sleep apnea team. ...Read more
