You're not alone. Snoring affects roughly 20% of adults during their lifetime.
In addition to snorers keeping their partner, and often other family members awake, snoring has been linked to serious health concerns, such as heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke.
Snoring appliances, called Mandibular Advancement Devices, can help with snoring. The devices hold the lower jaw and tongue forward to keep the airway open during sleep.
If you want to finally get a good nights sleep and wake up refreshed, North Shore Dentistry can help you or your partner with a custom-made snoring appliance.
