Do you snore, and has your partner compared it to the sound of a giant band saw slowly slicing through the house? Ever wake up groggy and grumpy after a “full night’s sleep?” If the answers are “Yes” and “Yes,” you could be suffering from sleep apnea, a not-so-funny condition in which sleepers actually stop breathing for brief periods overnight.
For most of us, snoring can be reduced or eliminated by wearing a simple oral appliance at night. It enlarges the airway by positioning the lower jaw slightly forward.
Benefit for the snorer: a restful night’s sleep.
