Most Individuals Snore.
Snoring may be annoying to one person and be a severe health problem for another. Of those who snore, only some will have obstructive sleep apnea. However, most who have sleep apnea do snore. This causes problems with breathing and affects sleep health. If severe, those with sleep apnea should seek medical treatment from a health professional.
Divign Sleep’s approach to helping with sleep apnea focuses on reducing tongue crowding to diminish the frequency and intensity of snoring.
What is Obstructive Sleep Apnea?
Obstructive sleep apnea is associated with periods of loud snoring interspersed with brief silences when breathing is interrupted. Those pauses in breathing can last for more than 10 seconds and occur up to 30 times in an hour.
Snoring generally resumes once the person can breathe again. These episodes of obstructed sleep apnea often happen several times a night. The interruption or reduction in breathing might rouse you from your slumber, produce a loud gasp, and be part of the snoring breathing cessation cycle. Sleep apnea causes people to sleep less restfully and, as a result, is less revitalizing. Lower quality of sleep can lead to daytime drowsiness or, in more severe cases, affect heart health and brain function.
What Are Some Symptoms of Sleep Apnea?
The most common symptom of sleep apnea is loud snoring. Other significant symptoms are:
- Waking up with a headache or a dry mouth
- Feeling tired during the day
- Trouble concentrating or paying attention
- Falling asleep during the day
- Restless sleep
- Memory and focusing issues (recent occurrence)
- Blood pressure or heart rate has increased (recent occurrence)
If you or your partner notices any of these symptoms, consult with your doctor. If you have obstructive sleep apnea, Divign Sleep Aligners can help by opening the airway and reducing snoring.
Divign Sleep: What Is It, and How Does It Work?
The goal of Divign Sleep Aligners is to improve human physiology and oral breathing environments by using the patented system. The tongue, a muscular organ, works best when it has enough space and isn’t restricted from moving freely. When teeth are crowded, there’s often too little space for the tongue. The tongue is then forced backward, where it covers some or all of the airway opening. This causes an undesirable throat blockage while sleeping or almost sleeping.
Teeth depressions visible on the tongue can confirm that there’s insufficient space. This emphasizes the value of Divign Sleep’s teeth realignment to create more room for the tongue to reduce airway blockages.
Before Starting Divign Sleep
The Before photo confirms there wasn’t enough room for the teeth to be ideally positioned. She was a heavy snorer who had obstructive sleep apnea for years. Her condition was confirmed by multiple sleep studies. Even with the nightly use of a CPAP (continuous positive airway pressure) device, her sleep quality was poor.
Instead of being upright, many teeth were leaning excessively towards the tongue. The two canines outside the arch were pushing out her lips. Poor tooth positions kept the mouth too small. There was insufficient space for the tongue on the floor of the mouth and palate.
After Divign Treatment
The After photo shows how her teeth have been realigned; straighter, more upright, and touching one another in better locations. No teeth were removed. No tooth enamel was permanently shaved away. The body made new bone to create adequate space for each tooth.
Divign Sleep successfully treated her sleep apnea and snoring because it created larger spaces in the top and bottom of her mouth for her tongue. As the shape of the floor and teeth morphed into the form of the letter “U” from the letter “V,” more room was made for the tongue. Even though the teeth have moved a lot, they are now in a beautiful and sustainable alignment. The constant constricting pressure from the teeth against the tongue has been eliminated.
Your partner will be grateful that you initiated Divign Sleep.
Her husband is ecstatic that she snores much less now. She falls asleep at a regular time and gets better quality rest. She no longer requires the assistance of a CPAP machine. Divign Sleep Aligners are to thank for giving her more energy, improving her sleep hygiene, and creating a healthier mouth.
