Snore Guard in Calabasas

What is a snore guard?

Also called a mandibular advancement device, a snore guard is a dental device that opens up the airways in a specific way. This increased opening allows patients to sleep more soundly and can fully eliminate snoring. It is effective in cases of general snoring, but it is also highly successful in helping patients stop snoring due to sleep apnea.

What is sleep apnea?

Sleep apnea is a prevalent medical condition that affects about 39 million Americans, and snoring is a symptom in up to 94% of cases. The condition is marked by repeated stopping and starting of breathing through the night. While a snore guard does not cure the condition, it does alleviate one major factor: snoring, allowing patients and their families to sleep better and feel more rested.

When do you need a snore guard?

If snoring has begun to affect either your own sleep or those around you, then it might be time to look for solutions. If you have been snoring consistently, then we recommend starting with a consultation at TruGlo Modern Dental. Our specialist can discuss your situation and provide an exam to see if a snore guard might be a good fit for you.
If you are unaware whether you snore or not, some symptoms of sleep apnea can include:
  • Feeling tired when you wake up and throughout the day
  • Having a dry mouth or sore throat upon waking
  • Experiencing headaches throughout the day
  • Regularly waking up in the middle of the night
  • Changes in mood (depression, irritability)
  • Difficulty concentrating or focusing
If you have noticed any of these, then it is worth a visit to see if you might have sleep apnea and start exploring treatment options.

Getting your snore guard: Overview of the process

First, patients will have a thorough consultation in which we explore their options and see if a snore guard is likely to provide effective benefits. We then take measurements and will send them to the lab to create a custom-made snore guard designed for your mouth’s unique structures. Once the guard is ready, you can return for a final appointment to check if it fits properly.
From there, you can take your guard home and get started on discovering quieter, higher-quality sleep. It is important to remember that there is no complete cure for sleep apnea. So, patients may see increased benefits from working with a sleep doctor to address other symptoms of the condition and see comprehensive benefits.

When will it start working?

Most patients will begin to see improvements almost immediately, with most reporting a reduction in snoring within a week of receiving their snore guard. Patients may continue to see mild improvements as your body adjusts to having the snore guard in place each night. To see continued results, it is important to have consistent, proper use of your snore guard. If it becomes damaged, we recommend coming in to receive a new one and keep your nights snore-free.

Does insurance cover snore guards for sleep apnea?

Most insurance carriers will have some amount of coverage for a snore guard for sleep apnea. Oral appliances such as a snore guard can be vital for not only alleviating symptoms but also improving the patient’s overall health and well-being. However, the amount of coverage can vary, so we recommend checking with your insurance provider to see what your plan allows for.
