Sleep apnea is a real serious thing to be dealt with, because it can really shorten someone’s life. One of the things we found helpful are snore appliances that opens the airway up as you sleep, and decreases the noise, and allows you to get more air while you’re breathing, which your body desperately needs.
I’ve had patients who as a result of getting a snore appliance, they’re able to sleep in the bed that they once were not allowed to sleep in because they made too much noise, but now because their snore is under control, it’s not too noisy, so they’re allowed back where they once were.
- Help you and your bed partner feel more rested and refreshed upon waking.

Get Relief With a Simple Oral Appliance
Snoring usually accompanies sleep apnea. Snoring happens when the soft tissues in the back of the throat vibrate from air passing over them. Our treatment focuses on stopping your snoring with an innovative oral appliance called Silent Nite. It fits over your teeth and gently pushes your lower jaw forward to accomplish two important things – stopping your snoring and keeping your airway open to help prevent sleep apnea.
It is normal for your tongue and other soft tissues in the back of your throat to relax during sleep. However, when they collapse too much and block your airway, you may develop sleep apnea. By moving these soft tissues forward slightly, Silent Nite helps keep you from experiencing the harmful effects of sleep apnea – as well as snoring.
During sleep apnea episodes, your airway is blocked so you stop breathing for a few seconds. Your brain then signals your body to wake up so it can take in more oxygen. You breathe in normally again and drift back to sleep. This cycle can repeat itself hundreds of times a night – without you even knowing!
Silent Nite keeps your airway open to stop snoring and allow you to sleep without interruption. Both you and your bed partner will rest better and feel better.
