Almost nothing is as important as a good night’s sleep – it’s crucial to both your health and your mental wellbeing. If snoring has become a serious problem for you or your partner, then you may want to consider a high-quality, custom-made snoring appliance from Castle Court Dental. Dental night guards are comfortable and easy to wear, and don’t impact on your ability to talk or drink water during the night.
A bespoke dental night guard supports the lower jaw in a forward position, which keeps the airway open. This prevents the tongue falling back onto the soft palate, which in turn prevents snoring. To have your night guard made, you’ll need to sit for dental impressions, which will be sent to a dental lab. Once your custom night guard is ready, you’ll need to return to Castle Court Dental Care to collect it, try it on and receive instructions on how to use it. Dental night guards for snoring typically last between five and 10 years, depending on the amount of stress they’re put under. Bring your night guard with you to your regular dental check-ups so that your dentist can assess its condition.
