Austin Snoring Treatment Dentists
Snoring is a problem for millions of people across the United States. Approximately 30 percent of people over the age of 30 and 40 percent over the age of 40 are snorers. Additionally, almost 60 percent of people claim that their partner snores. While snoring can be caused by obesity, sleep apnea, allergies, and a number of other factors, it can also be caused by a temporomandibular joint disorder. If you or your partner snores, you should consider seeking neuromuscular treatment from a skilled dental professional.

How Neuromuscular Dentistry Can Help
Snoring is typically caused by your soft and hard tissue palates vibrating due to a narrow air passage. When the palates vibrate, it causes a “flapping” sound. If your snoring is keeping you or your partner awake, you need to consult with a skilled dental professional to discuss your options for neuromuscular therapy treatment. This is an important health concern because over time it can lead to severe sleep deprivation and this has been linked to the development of a host of dangerous conditions.
When the temporomandibular joint is not properly aligned, the effects can be extremely painful and uncomfortable. A skilled dental professional can assess your problem and provide the necessary treatment to realign your jaw.
