Snoreguards

Snoring is a nuisance to your friends and loved ones, but it may also be posing a serious risk to your health. Patients who snore may be suffering from breathing problems that restrict airflow to the brain, causing memory loss, daytime fatigue, and an increased risk of systemic illness. If you snore, Dr. Como can provide a custom snoreguard to open up the air passages, allowing you to breath and sleep easy.

Snoring Man

Causes of snoring vary from patient to patient, but may include:

  • Narrow or blocked air passages
  • Excess throat or nasal tissue
  • Tongue position
  • Poor sleep posture
  • Tobacco and alcohol consumption
  • Obesity

A custom snoreguard works by repositioning the jaw and tongue, allowing for continuous airflow. The snoreguard will be thin and lightweight, resembling an athletic mouthguard. Dr. Como will take impressions of your teeth to ensure the snoreguard fits comfortably. Other treatment recommendations may include, sleeping on your side; avoiding certain foods, alcohol, and medications before bed; clearing nasal passages; and losing weight.

Call today to reserve your snoreguard appointment with Dr. John F. Como. Patients from New Rochelle, Pelham, Larchmont, Mamaroneck, and Westchester County enjoy our courteous staff and professional expertise.
