Can You Make A Device Just for Snoring?
Yes, dental sleep devices work quite well at reducing the sound and severity of snoring. However, if you are a snorer and have never had a sleep test (learn more about sleep tests) it is advisable to be screened or tested for the more serious disorder of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) (learn more about OSA). Many snorers also have obstructive sleep apnea, often without even realizing it.
If a diagnosis is made of Primary Snoring then a dental sleep device can be made to control the sound and severity of your snoring. Usually, the procedures needed to treat snoring are simpler than for treatment of obstructive sleep apnea. This often results in fewer office visits and follow-up observations for people whose primary symptom is snoring.
