While not all individuals who snore suffer from a sleep disorder, such as sleep apnea, many patients with sleep apnea snore. If you or a loved one snores, we recommend that your visit our dentists at Hooper Family Dentistry, where we can help you determine whether you also suffer from sleep apnea and provide you with a snoring treatment. To learn more about how we can treat snoring in Bossier City, Louisiana, and to schedule your consultation with Dr. Stephen R. Hooper, Dr. Stephen Tyer or Dr. Christopher G. Hooper, please call us.
If you snore, you know that snoring can cause noise and irritation that affects your significant other even more than you. Your partner may not be able to get a good night’s rest because of chronic loud snoring. In some cases, snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea or other serious sleep disorders or medical conditions.
If you snore but do not have sleep apnea, we have treatment options for you. One of the common treatments we provide to minimize snoring is an oral appliance called the NORAD. The NORAD is a custom-made device that repositions the lower jaw, holding it in a downward and slightly more forward position that allows the airway to remain open during sleep. This position can minimize snoring, allowing both you and your partner to get the rest you need.
