Dr. Kenneth Barney of Hedgesville, WV proudly offers a wide selection of services under one roof. In addition to general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry, he also provides oral appliance therapy for patients who are dealing with chronic snoring and even obstructive sleep apnea.
Snoring can be caused by a variety of issues but is often due to loose tissues in the oral cavity. It may also be an indication that a sleeping disorder such as obstructive sleep apnea is present. Once patients understand the reason behind their snoring, they may be able to address it with the use of oral appliance therapy.
Often, patients who visit Dr. Kenneth Barney are interested in learning about how they can address their snoring severity. Their bed partners may be getting interrupted sleep because of their snoring, and they find that it is something they cannot control on their own while they’re resting at night. This is where the use of an oral appliance becomes a desirable method of treatment. Oral appliance therapy uses a specialized mouth guard that patients wear when they sleep to reduce snoring and open the airways. This comfortable mouth guard is custom-made by a dentist to fit into the mouth and relieve loose tissues which may be contributing to the issue. Oral appliance therapy is:
• Easy to clean
Patients who visit the office of Dr. Kenneth Barney and are interested in oral appliance therapy should ask their dentist about this and other options for improving their overall health and wellness. The professionals at our practice can educate patients on their options and help them choose the one best suited for their needs.
