Treatment Options for Chronic Snoring

Loud snoring can be disruptive and irritating to sufferers and bed partners alike. But chronic snoring may indicate a more serious condition called sleep apnea. Untreated sleep apnea may lead to long-term health complications, but our Pittsburgh dentists can help you regain your health and a good night’s sleep.

Sleep apnea is a condition in which your airway collapses during sleep, causing you to regularly awaken as the brain tries to restore its supply of oxygen. One sign of obstructive sleep apnea is chronic snoring, which is why it is often a bed partner who first alerts you to your potential sleep apnea issues.

Fortunately, there are more sleep apnea treatment options than ever before. Depending on the unique circumstances of your condition, Dr. Quartuccio and Dr. Frye may recommend:

  • Oral appliances such as TAP and SomnoDent, which keep the jaw properly aligned during sleep and ensure that the airway remains open
  • Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machines that deliver a steady stream of slightly pressurized air through a special mask
  • Micr02 sleep and snore device, a new custom orthotic appliance that holds your jaw in a slightly forward position in order to keep your airway open while you sleep

Only an experienced medical professional can diagnose and treat sleep apnea. If you or your partner suffers from chronic snoring, it’s time to learn more about the many treatment options available to you. Our Pittsburgh dentists can perform a sleep apnea diagnostic exam to determine the best treatment plan for you.
