Your mouth could be the reason behind your snoring

To find a solution to your snoring, you need to get to the root of your problem. If you snore, it could mean that there is an obstruction of your airway. It could be based on an issue with your nasal passages or it could be connected to a bad bite. Snoring is often an indicator of more serious problems, such as a TMJ disorder or sleep apnea.

If this is the case, you could find yourself suffering from a host of troubling symptoms. Chronic fatigue, weight gain, and irritability can all be traced back to a sleep disorder that is caused by the blockage of your airway at night. If that blockage is caused by a TMJ disorder, you could also be experiencing pain in your jaw, chronic headaches, earaches, and pain in your neck or shoulders.

A proper diagnosis is the key

Maybe surprisingly, a Milwaukee dentist can help you to find out what is causing your snoring problem. If the issue is caused by an oral problem, such as a jaw that is out of alignment, a snoring appliance could help you. Your dentist can create a snoring mouthguard that is tailored for your mouth to align your bite while you sleep at night.
