Snoring can be a big problem, both for you if it is interfering with your quality of sleep, and for your partner. An EMA snore guard may be just what you need to quickly stop snoring and reclaim your sleep. EMA snore guards are approved to treat snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, but they may not be right for everyone. Only your dentist can help you determine if this is the right appliance and method to help you in your unique situation.
Here are some things you should know about EMA snore guards:
- They will only work for people with a partial or full set of natural teeth since they attach to your teeth to stay in place.
- Your dentist will need to know your entire health and dental history to determine whether you are a good candidate for an EMA snore guard. If you have asthma, breathing or other respiratory problems, you may need different treatment options. Also, not all sleep apnea can be treated with this appliance.
If your dentist decides to give you an EMA snore guard, you will be glad to know that they are metal-free and the straps are latex-free. Unlike CPAP machines, they fit completely inside your mouth, are easily portable, do not require electricity or make noise while you are trying to sleep, and you can even talk or drink water without removing the appliance.
