Sleep Apnea

How Do I Stop Snoring?

When you snore regularly at night, it’s not only annoying for those around you. It can be detrimental to your overall health and at times, dangerous. If you go see a physician and are diagnosed with sleep apnea, Red Bank Smiles has the treatment options necessary to alleviate your symptoms and help you get the great night’s rest you deserve.

For those who might be CPAP intolerant, it’s crucial that you get the right care for your needs. A common cause of snoring is an obstructed airway, which can be fixed with a custom sleep apparatus that fits your mouth and moves the jaw to a protruded position while you sleep.

Sleep Apnea Symptoms

While snoring is the most commonly understood symptom of sleep apnea, it can have much a bigger negative impact in other areas of your life, including difficulty concentrating, memory impairment, headaches, dry mouth, irritability, and at its worst, depression.
