Holiday travel is fast approaching and you may be wondering how you are ever going to fit all of the items you need to travel with in your 1 or 2 suitcases allowed on the plane. This year you may be able to leave that breathing machine at home and instead enjoy the benefits of a dental device to alleviate symptoms of sleep apnea.
You deserve the opportunity to enjoy the holidays with family and friends. You may be even trying to decide if you are going to bring your machine with you at all. You may be sharing a house with family and you fear keeping them awake with the noise. A custom made dental device fits easily in your mouth, opens up your throat to decrease the impact of sleep apnea without the negatives of a machine that is running all night. For many this can be a wonderful solution.
Dry mouth is a symptom that many patients with sleep apnea report when they use a breathing machine. Dry mouth can have a negative impact on the overall health of your smile. Bacteria grows faster when you do not have enough saliva to wash plaque and food from the surface of your teeth. A dental device keeps your lips closed throughout the night, decreasing dry mouth symptoms.
