Your oral surgeon has a great role to play when you suffer from snoring at night. The damage caused by snoring is great, especially when left untreated for an extended period of time.

If you have been snoring for a while, chances are that you are struggling with poor oral health or increased cavities and similar maladies. If your mouth is consistently in pain, it is important that you know your oral surgeon can help.

What Your Oral Surgeon Can Do to Help You


One of the ways that your oral surgeon can help if you struggle with snoring is to check to make sure that all of your tissues are properly in place.

Sometimes snoring is caused by an enlarged uvula, and by reducing the size of your uvula through surgery, your snoring could be a thing of the past.

You can also get a mouth guard to help you protect your mouth if you snore regularly. This helps to keep your mouth moist while you sleep, which can improve your oral health.

Plus, it keeps your jaw positioned in the right place to often stop snoring from continuing or getting worse.
Snoring is not natural, or expected as we get older. Unfortunately, it is a symptom that is telling you that there is a larger problem out there.

However, it isn't always easy to figure out what that other problem is. If you have been snoring, then it is important that you work hard to maintain your oral health. Contact our office as soon as you possibly can when you become aware of your snoring.

They can help you figure out what may be causing your snoring, and they can help treat the snoring symptoms until a long-term treatment can be figured out.
