What does snoring have to do with the dentist? A lot more than you may think. Yes, snoring is an annoyance, but it can also be a symptom of a serious medical condition called sleep apnea.
In sleep apnea, the soft tissue in your throat loses tone and can close off the airway, causing snoring. This deprivation of oxygen can also leave you feeling tired.
Dr. Edgerton and Dr. Fisher can treat snoring and/or sleep apnea in their Wilmington office with a personally-fitted, affordable snoring appliance. This appliance is a specialized mouth guard that holds your jaw forward while you sleep, helping your airway remain open.
Drs. Edgerton and Fisher offer help for sleep apnea to Wilmington, NC and the surrounding areas such as Wrightsville Beach, Porter’s Neck, Hampstead and Landfall Community.
