If so, we may be able to help, with a recently developed device called the SILENT NITE TM appliance. During sleep, the muscles and soft tissue in the throat and mouth relax, making the breathing airway smaller. This decrease in the airway space increases the velocity of air flowing through the airway during breathing. As the velocity of required air is increased in the constricted space, soft tissues like the soft palate and the uvula vibrate, which causes snoring.
Snoring research has shown that custom fabricated dental devices worn at night that move the lower jaw into a forward position, increase the three dimensional space in the airway tube, which reduces air velocity and soft tissue vibration. In this way, snoring can be eliminated. The success rate of such devices ranges from 70-100%.
The SILENT NITE TM appliance is the most comfortable of the appliances we have found. It positions the lower jaw into a forward position by means of special connectors that are attached to transparent flexible upper and lower forms. The forms are custom laminated with heat and pressure to the dentist's model of the mouth. The fit is excellent and comfortable.
Although many patients have been successfully treated with the SILENT NITE TM appliance, certain types of problems are not amenable to appliance therapy. In order to help determine whether or not this appliance will help you, we have a simple take-home checklist that you can fill out. Your answers will enable us to make a recommendation of what type of treatment would help you the most, so that you and your loved ones can enjoy more peaceful and healthful sleep.
