Palo Alto Orthodontist Dr. Morrill can help snoring too

By on Mar 13, 2014 in Uncategorized |

Everyone knows that you should go to an orthodontist if you need your teeth straightened, but did you know that they can help prevent snoring too?

Larry Morrill offers an appliance that is unlike any other device out there. Sure you could buy nose strips, or spray, but Dr. Morrill can provide a customized appliance called SomnoDent that repositions the lower jaw forward to reduce and often eliminate snoring. These appliances are custom-made for each patient, and then are gradually adjusted to bring the lower jaw forward enough to eliminate snoring.

Even more important than snoring, the device can be used to treat sleep apnea, a serious medical condition diagnosed by a sleep study.  It can lead to being chronically tired, and in severe cases, to various medical problems, including heart failure.

So if you’re looking for a way to get a better nights sleep, calling Dr. Morrill might just be the way to go.
