Snoring & Sleep Apnea in Lincoln, Nebraska

One-Third of the Population Snores

It is estimated that more than 90 million people in North America snore while sleeping. Spouses and children are often repeatedly disturbed during their sleep cycles by a snoring family member, which can lead to tensions and animosity. Snoring can kill you, according to a UCLA School of Dentistry study. The struggle for breath can result in soaring blood pressure, which can damage the walls of the carotid arteries and increase the risk of stroke. Fortunately, using the Silent Nite snore prevention device, dentists can now provide most persons with cost-effective relief.

What Causes Snoring?

During sleep, the muscles and soft tissues in the throat and mouth relax, making the breathing airway smaller. This decrease in the airway space increases the velocity of air flowing through the airway during breathing. As the velocity of required air is increased in the constricted space, soft tissues, like the soft palate and the uvula, vibrate. The vibrations of these soft tissues in the mouth and throat result in what is called “noisy breathing” or generally referred to as snoring. It should also be noted that sleep studies have shown attached to transparent flexible upper and lower forms. The forms are custom laminated with heat and pressure to the dentist’s model of the mouth. The fit is excellent and comfortable.

Breathing Is Easier with Silent Nite

Silent Nite devices do not interfere with breathing through the mouth. Even in cases of congested nasal passages, the device prevents snoring and allows uninhibited oral breathing. Small movements of the jaw (temporomandibular joint or TMJ) are possible while wearing a Silent Nite device. This movement potential helps minimize stiffness in the joints of the jaw in the morning.

The Silent Nite device may produce a slight sensation of the jaws being out of alignment upon wakening. This feeling is due to lymphatic fluid build up in the jaw joint that occurs overnight and will rapidly subside in minutes. Silent Nite devices help promote deeper, more restful sleep by preventing snoring.

How Does Silent Nite Prevent Snoring?

Snoring research has also shown that custom-fabricated dental devices worn at night that move the lower jaw into a forward position. This increases the three-dimensional space in the airway tube, which reduces air velocity and soft tissue vibration. By increasing the volumetric capacity of the airway and preventing soft tissue vibrations, snoring is eliminated. In clinical research studies, these dentist prescribed oral devices have exhibited initial snoring prevention success rates of between 80 to 100 percent. The Silent Nite device positions the lower jaw into a forward position by means of special connectors that are attached to transparent flexible upper and lower forms. The forms are custom laminated with heat and pressure to the dentist’s model of the mouth. The fit is excellent and comfortable.

Bonnie P.

I am very satisfied with my experience at the all-new All Smiles Dentistry. Alyssia, my hygienist, was very professional and explained all procedures clearly. Dr. Killeen took the time to visit and, although I know he was busy, did not give me the impression that he was in a hurry. I am so glad I stayed with All Smiles Dentistry.

Our family needed a new dentist after moving to Lincoln and we are very pleased with our choice! They took the time to explain what they were doing and seem to genuinely care about patients.
