It is estimated that more than 90 million North Americans snore while sleeping. For the majority of snorers, the most affordable, non-invasive, comfortable and effective snoring solution remains a dentist prescribed snore prevention devise. Research shows that the struggle for breath can result in soaring blood pressure, which can damage the walls of the carotid arteries and increase the risk of stroke.
Snoring and sleep apnea research has shown that custom-fabricated dental devices, which move the lower jaw into a forward position, increase the three-dimension space in the airway tube, reducing air velocity and soft tissue vibration. By increasing the volumetric capacity of the airway and preventing soft tissue vibrations, snoring and sleep apnea are eliminated. In clinical research studies, oral devices have exhibited success rates of between 80 to 100 percent. (Research references are available on request.)
