Millions of Americans deal with snoring every night.
Patrick Toms DMD offers the Silent Nite® dental device for patients who need a snoring cure. Silent Nite® is a simple mouthpiece that a person wears while sleeping.
Snoring is caused when the muscles and soft tissues inside the mouth and throat relax. This relaxation narrows a person’s airway, which subsequently increases the velocity of airflow each time a person breathes. As this velocity increases, soft tissues like the soft palate and uvula vibrate, resulting in the common snoring noise. In addition to disrupting sleep cycles, snoring can also result in heightened blood pressure, due to the restricted airway. For this reason, many individuals seek out snoring remedies to eliminate this noisy breathing.
Our Silent Nite® offers a remedy for snoring by readjusting the lower jaw into a forward position that subsequently increases space in a person’s airway. Air velocity is decreased, and soft tissue vibrations are reduced.
Custom-designed upper and lower forms fit comfortably into a person’s mouth and permit small movements of the jaw so that uninhibited breathing can occur. Silent Nite® is our recommended snoring remedy.
