Silent Nite® Slide Link® Snore Guard
When you snore consistently, you can cause your sleeping partner to lose precious hours of sleep. If your snoring is associated with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), it can also prevent you from reaching the deep levels of sleep that you need. To stop snoring or to treat sleep apnea comfortably, Dr. Jenkins often prescribes the Silent Nite® Slide Link® snore guard, which is custom-designed to help you enjoy more restful sleep. With the custom, non-obtrusive oral appliance, patients with sleep apnea can enjoy a more comfortable alternative to the more cumbersome CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) machine and mask.
How the Slide Link® Works
The secret to Silent Nite’s patented Slide Link® snore guard is its innovative, highly supportive design. Your snore guard will be fashioned according to highly precise measurements of your teeth, jawbone, and the motion of your bite. Unique connectors offer your guard unmatched support while optimizing your comfort, so you can sleep peacefully and continuously throughout the night.
The Importance of Treating Sleep Apnea
Snoring is often caused by throat tissues vibrating due to a partial airway obstruction. Mouth and throat tissues can sometimes collapse into your airway as you sleep, causing increased pressure in the airway. In the case of OSA, oral tissues completely block your airway and stop you from breathing until your body is forced awake to clear the obstruction. Because sleep apnea episodes repeat themselves hundreds of times a night, the disorder stops you from ever reaching the R.E.M. (rapid eye movement) stage of sleep that your mind and body need to rest. In time, sleep apnea can lead to sleep deprivation, and an increased risk of chronic health conditions, including cardiovascular disease.
