Are you suffering from chronic snoring that affects your sleep? Has your snoring problem caused social inconvenience and dented personal relationships? Then you may be a good candidate for snoring treatment offered by Dr. Stephen C. Ura at his Nashua, NH, dental practice. Dr. Ura works closely with your physician through the entire process, from diagnosis and treatment to follow-ups, to help you achieve a restful night of sleep. He offers non-surgical treatment with oral appliance therapy at the Center for Dental Excellence to ease the side effects of snoring.
Why Snoring Can Be More Than Just a Nuisance
Chronic snoring can put you at more than just a social disadvantage. Often, it can cause disturbances in your sleep and your partner's rest, leading you both to feel tired and irritable the next day. Your partner can experience serious frustration over the noise and sleep compromised by snoring fails to rejuvenate you as it should, because your airway restricts air supply to every part of your body. Chronic snoring can also be indicative of something far more serious, such as obstructive sleep apnea. This is why it is dangerous to use over-the-counter snoring medications.
Dr. Ura believes in focusing on the patient's whole-body health and works closely with physicians to help patients achieve restful sleep.
Focus on Whole-Body Health
Chronic snoring is a sleep disorder and can have a detrimental impact on whole-body health. Sleep studies are an important step for diagnosis, and Dr. Ura will work with your physician for the correct diagnosis. Patients may not always need an overnight sleep study, as there are provisions for home testing as well.
Your Snoring Solution
After a more serious sleep problem has been ruled out, Dr. Ura can create a custom oral appliance that prevents snoring by opening up the airway. Dentist-crafted oral appliances have a much higher rate of success. Many patients are surprised to learn that a simple oral appliance can ease the effects of snoring. It is important to note that Dr. Ura's custom devices are designed to be more comfortable, safer, and more effective than products that can be purchased over the counter. Dr. Ura will work with you to titrate (adjust) your appliance for maximum effectiveness.
A custom-made oral appliance designed by Dr. Ura will fit much more comfortably and provide more effective snoring relief than a commercial one.
