Eighty-seven million people in the United States snore and 45 million are habitual snorers. While snoring is often harmless, it can be indicative of a serious health problem called obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). As snoring has the potential to be both disruptive as well as an indicator of more serious health issues, patients should consult either their dentist or physician.
Dr. Netter can help those with mild to moderate OSA and people who snore but do not have apnea, with a PM Positioner or other intraoral appliance. Consult the links below for more information, make an appointment with Dr. Netter, or simply ask about snore devices at your next routinely scheduled dental appointment.
