Sleep apnea is a condition affecting the soft palate and other parts of the upper respiratory system, resulting in issues with snoring and breathing interruption when you sleep. There are several different treatment options to consider, but a professional diagnosis is needed to identify the most effective one. If you are struggling with mild to moderate sleep apnea, symptom relief can often be found by using a snore guard at night.
Denture wearers with sleep apnea can’t use mandibular advancement snore guards as they must attach to the teeth in some way. This calls for a tongue stabilizer snore guard. This soft plastic snore guard fits comfortably in the mouth and keeps the tongue and related structures in the ideal position for maximum unobstructed air flow.
When you first wake up in the morning, you should lightly brush the tongue stabilizer with a soft-bristled toothbrush and nonabrasive toothpaste. This will help remove any plaque that has built up overnight and keep the unit fresh. You should then dry it with a clean paper towel and store the snore guard in a safe location.
