Snoring may or may not be a sign that you need sleep apnea treatment. Dr. Rick Barfield can assess your condition, working with a sleep disorder specialist. If you have apnea, they will create a treatment plan for you.
They may prescribe a mouthguard to keep your airway open while you sleep. If so, Dr. Barfield will fit you for a custom-made mouthguard that will work better than one purchased from a store. Even if you don’t have apnea, a custom mouthguard can prevent you from snoring so you and others in your household can get a better night’s rest.
Take our quiz to find out if you could have sleep apnea. Then call 1st in Smiles at 972-905-9266 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Barfield. Whether or not you have apnea, you can benefit from a mouthguard if you have a snoring problem. It’s especially important to get treatment if you have apnea, though, because research has linked it to conditions like high blood pressure and stroke.
