Our Advanced Snoring Treatment Services

Snoring is not fun! Not just for you but also for those around you. It may affect the quality of your sleep and disturb anyone in the room with you.
You dread people finding that you snore. You’re embarrassed by it! You and your sleeping partner suffer long, tired, and less productive days because of it. Here’s what we offer:

Comprehensive diagnosis and testing

Before prescribing any solution, our first port of call is to identify the root cause of your snoring. A comprehensive diagnosis is vital because it unveils if your snoring is a symptom of a much more serious sleep disorder or health issue.
We start the process by initiating inquiries about lifestyle factors such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and sleep patterns. We then proceed to questions about your medical history.
Next, we conduct a physical examination to check your airways, weight, neck measurements, if you have high blood pressure and more.

Exceptional treatment options

Our diagnosis from above will determine your next steps. Sleep apnea treatment is recommended for patients with this sleeping disorder. 

Our snoring treatment usually falls into any of these three categories, depending on the severity of your underlying cause: 

  • Customized CPAP therapy solutions: We treat sleep apnea with a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine. The CPAP is a dental sleep appliance that keeps your airways open through the night. 
  • Oral appliances tailored to individual needs: Your case may also just need an oral device specially designed for your dentition and mouth. Examples of these devices include the Jaw Advancing Device (JAD) or a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD), which are both sleep apnea treatment options. They work by making more room for you to breathe and prevent snoring. 
  • Lifestyle modifications: Sometimes, simple lifestyle changes are all you need to treat snoring. These changes can be anything from changing your sleeping position to stopping alcohol or smoking and weight loss. 
  • Surgery: We may propose surgery if you have an airway blockage, but usually, that’s a last resort. Moreover, we would have prescribed CPAP or even lifestyle changes before going this route. 

Ongoing patient support and monitoring

We don’t just treat you and send you on your way. We work with you to ensure the treatment is progressing as planned and that you’re enjoying a much better sleep experience.
Our support and monitoring system includes regularly scheduled visits to the clinic for follow-up examinations and to hear your experience with the oral devices if you were prescribed one.

Common causes of snoring include lifestyle choices like smoking and drug/alcohol use, your mouth anatomy, poor sleep position, and hygiene. 

Other risk factors include sleep apnea (obstructive sleep apnea, central sleep apnea, and complex sleep apnea syndrome), soft palate, being a man (men are more likely to snore than women), family history, and more.

Not necessarily so. Snoring does not automatically mean you have sleep apnea. That said, loud snoring is one of the most common indicators of sleep apnea.

It’s hard and dangerous to self-diagnose sleep disorders by yourself. You may have a serious underlying medical issue causing snoring while opting for internet-sourced remedies. 

Hence, we recommend visiting a qualified dental clinic like Macleod Trail Dental if you’re in Calgary to get it checked.

The most effective treatment is one customized for your needs. Your case may only need lifestyle changes, while others may require wearing oral devices and rare and extreme cases, surgery. 

Yes, however, you must deal with the primary cause for the treatment to be long-term. For example, snoring caused by smoking and alcohol intake will persist if the patient does not modify their lifestyle choices.

Lifestyle changes like losing weight, getting plenty of quality sleep at night, changing sleep positions, limiting alcohol intake, and quitting smoking can help reduce or treat snoring.

We will share your follow-up appointments with you. This will vary from person to person based on the treatment. Recommended lifestyle changes may require at least a month to take root. 

As such, your follow-up appointment might be infrequent compared to someone using CPAP or other oral devices.

Potential risks of snoring oral devices include jaw soreness and tension, dental changes, and discomfort. However, note that most of these side effects are because of ill-fitting devices. 

At Macleod Trail Dental, we carefully produce oral devices that fit your dental and jaw structure. This prevents and minimizes any possibility of side effects.

There aren’t any age restrictions for seeking snoring treatments. One study observed no difference in outcomes between younger and older adults who treated snoring with a mandibular advancement device (MAD).

We offer direct billing for anyone who has insurance.
