Stop Snoring and Sleep Better with Snore Guard

Snoring is affected by diet, health, lifestyle, age, weight, environment and other factors. At Spire Dental Group we recommend Snore Guard to our patients. Snore Guard is a small oral appliance professionally fitted by your dentist. It has a unique inner lining that is softened by heat during the fitting process. (Similar to an athletic mouth guard.) The unit is custom fitted to your individual needs. It fits snugly over your top teeth while you sleep and is designed to prevent your tongue from dropping towards the back of your throat. This helps keep your airway open, effectively relieving the main cause of snoring.

Individuals who snore due to partial airway obstruction often find relief with a snore guard. However, its effectiveness varies. It may not be suitable for snoring caused by factors like nasal congestion or certain medical conditions. Consulting with a healthcare professional can help determine if a snore guard is the right solution.
Some snore guards are available over-the-counter, while others, especially custom-fitted ones, may require a prescription. The choice between OTC and prescription options depends on the individual's specific needs and the severity of their snoring.
Yes, there are various types of snore guards, including adjustable, boil-and-bite, and custom-fitted options. Choosing the right one depends on factors like comfort, severity of snoring, and personal preferences. Consulting with our dentist can aid in selecting the most suitable type.
Custom-fitted snore guards are often more effective than generic, one-size-fits-all options. The custom fit ensures optimal repositioning of the jaw and tongue, addressing the individual's specific snoring causes. This personalised approach enhances comfort and overall effectiveness in reducing snoring.
While snore guards are generally well-tolerated, some individuals may experience mild side effects initially, such as jaw soreness or excessive salivation. These usually subside with time as the user adjusts to wearing the device. Custom-fitted guards minimize discomfort by offering a tailored fit.
Cleaning and maintaining a snore guard are essential for hygiene and longevity. Regularly rinsing it with cool water and using a mild soap helps prevent bacterial growth. Some guards may be soaked in a denture cleaner or a mixture of water and vinegar. Proper storage, away from heat and sunlight, further contributes to its longevity.
Yes, certain lifestyle changes can complement the effectiveness of a snore guard. Weight management, avoiding alcohol and sedatives before bedtime, and establishing a regular sleep routine are examples of habits that, when combined with a snore guard, may contribute to a reduction in snoring.
A snore guard is generally effective throughout the night. Consistent use, especially during sleep, ensures continuous support in maintaining an open airway. While nightly use is common, individual preferences and circumstances may vary, and consulting with a healthcare professional can provide personalised guidance.
Yes, snore guards can serve a dual purpose and be used for individuals with bruxism (teeth grinding) concerns. Custom-fitted guards, in particular, can help protect both against snoring and the detrimental effects of teeth grinding by providing a cushioning barrier between the upper and lower teeth.
Snore guards primarily address issues related to the oral and throat areas, so their impact on nasal congestion is limited. For individuals with nasal breathing issues, alternative solutions or a combination of remedies may be more effective. Consulting with us helps in determining the most appropriate approach.
Long-term use of a snore guard, especially when indicated by a healthcare professional, typically does not lead to dependency. There are no known adverse long-term effects associated with its use. Regular check-ups with us can help monitor oral health and ensure continued effectiveness.
Snore guards are designed to allow for normal breathing and speech during sleep. Custom-fitted options, in particular, ensure that the device fits snugly without causing significant interference. Users may experience an adjustment period, but discomfort and breathing issues are usually minimal and temporary.
While generally safe, there may be instances where using a snore guard is not recommended, such as for individuals with certain jaw disorders or dental conditions. Consulting with our dentist is crucial to ensure that the use of a snore guard is appropriate and safe for individual circumstances.
