What About Snoring?

Beyond the annoying noise, snoring may point to a more serious problem.

It may be a warning sign

Snoring can be a warning sign that you may have Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). Sleep Apnea is a serious medical condition that occurs when your air passage becomes temporarily blocked causing breathing to stop several times throughout the night. During these episodes, the brain is depleted of oxygen.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea dangers

OSA may increase your risk for heart attack or stroke while also causing you to spend less time in the deep restorative sleep required for energy and mental sharpness. At Greentree we’re passionate about leading you into lifelong health – and helping you achieve restorative sleep is essential to that goal.

If I snore, does it mean I have Obstructive Sleep Apnea?

According to Dr. Robert L. Owens of the Sleep Disorders Research Program at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, “Most people who snore don't have obstructive sleep apnea, but most people who have apnea snore.”

How do I know if my snoring is part of a more serious problem?

The first step to diagnosing and treating sleep related problems is to have a consultation with a sleep dentistry professional like Dr. Kear. We offer a complimentary consultation to help evaluate your current sleep issues.

Sleep Dentistry Solution

Dr. Kear offers a comfortable and convenient solution to help you sleep better and wake up refreshed. You’ll be surprised at the difference a good night’s sleep can make in your life.

No Bulky Facemask or Power Required

One of the most common solutions to OSA is a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine. Though effective, CPAP machines are far from convenient and comfortable. Patients must wear a bulky facemask connected by a hose to an electric device that maintains positive air pressure while they sleep. Traveling with a CPAP, regular cleaning and maintenance, finding comfortable positions to sleep while wearing it, and other related issues make this choice less appealing to many.

FDA Approved Sleep Dentistry Solution

We offer an FDA approved, convenient sleep dentistry device that’s more like a simple mouthguard used in athletics.

Personalized for You

Dr. Kear will design a personalized oral appliance that keeps your jaw in a forward position while you sleep, allowing your airway to remain open for an uninterrupted, better night’s sleep. It is small, portable, quiet, comfortable, and highly effective.
