  • Overweight.

  • Family history of sleep apnea.
  • Smoking.

How to Stop Snoring

Snoring Solutions

Snoring can be a sign of sleep apnea, and losing oxygen at night can cause other health problems. You may be at higher risk for high blood pressure, stroke, depression, diabetes, or heart failure. If you are a deep sleeper and snore on a regular basis, it’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to a good night’s sleep.

Changing Positions

snoring solutions in Orange CA dentistSometimes a person can simply change sleep positions by turning onto their side to help reduce snoring. But people aren’t always conscious of what they do in their sleep. Instead, we recommend an oral appliance for heavy snoring problems.

Using a Snoring Mouthpiece

A dental device is used to support the jaw and keep the airway from falling in. The snoring mouthpiece shifts the bones of the jaw, moving the top of your mouth forward. This creates space in the sinuses, allowing you to breathe without obstruction.

The mouthguards look similar to those worn by sports players. We will make sure to order a comfortable size for you so you can wear it while you sleep and without interruption.

Very helpful and friendly staff. I love that they make your crown right there and you don't have to have a temporary tooth and wait for the permanent tooth.

I've been procrastinating on going to the dentist for a few years because I was nervous of what I might need. But after visiting with Dr. Michelsen, I found that I was worried for no reason at all. She and her staff are kind, patient, and gentle! I'm smiling because, not only are my teeth nice and healthy again, I also got my smile brightened. It looks better than I thought possible...and makes me feel happy about myself again.

My husband and I are both patients of Dr. Michelsen. As she has recently taken over this practice, we have only had a few visits with her but right off the bat, she made us feel right at ease and very comfortable with both her skill as a dentist and also her personal attention to her patients. She takes the time to get to know you, which we like. Her office staff is always very warm and inviting and never fail to greet you with a smile. I have already referred a friend and hoping we have the opportunity to refer others!
