Have you been told that you snore loudly in your sleep? Snoring isn’t just a minor inconvenience that keeps your partner awake; it has a significant impact on your health and well-being. When you snore, your body has a hard time getting sufficient air in and out of your lungs. This could result in several issues, including contributing to elevated blood pressure. Research has shown that inadequate oxygen intake during sleep can even affect your long- and short-term memory. Being able to breathe properly at night can also impact your aging process.
The team at Fort Bend Periodontics and Implantology in Sugar Land, TX offer the Elastic Mandibular Advancement (EMA) device; which is non-invasive, easy to use, comfortable, and effective in eliminating snoring. Compared to regular CPAPs, the EMA is more compact and comfortable. Especially beneficial in patients who clench and grind their teeth during sleep, the EMA gently opens the airways to improve airflow, helps protect the teeth, and eliminates snoring.
