Sleep Apnea and Snore Guards

When you go to bed, do you have airway problems that cause snoring or sleep apnea? Stoney Trail Dental wants to help you by offering sleep apnea and snore guard treatments.

Snore and Sleep Apnea

We will visually inspect your mouth and inquire about your medical history. It is important that we examine your neck area for inflammation because this could indicate health problems like oral cancer. Our process is thorough because we want you to be at your healthiest while making sure nothing is missed. Questions before an oral exam will be more detailed the first time around because we are getting to know you as a patient.

Additional Care at Your Convenience

Snoring is more common in men than women and occurs when the flow of air from your mouth or nose to your lungs creates a vibration of your throat tissues while asleep. This issue is caused because the muscles at the back roof of your mouth, tongue and throat are too calm.
