Snoring is one of the most obvious signs that a patient suffers from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). While OSA isn’t contagious, the other adverse side effects like fatigue, headaches, and memory loss or confusion are easily transferred to the loved ones kept up all night by loud snoring. Many patients believe that the use of a constant positive airway pressure (CPAP) system is the only way to regain their peaceful sleep, but actually, an unobtrusive, comfortable dental appliance may provide the relief patients with OSA desire. Call Dr. Scott Wagner and his Jacksonville Beach, FL team to schedule a sleep apnea consultation, and find out more about how a mouthguard could help you stop snoring and sleep through the night.

To enhance performance, many athletes have a set routine before a big game. They might go to bed early in order to get a good night’s sleep, eat a high protein meal with a side of carbohydrates, and maybe carry a lucky charm that may or may not help them win. There is one thing, however, that has actually been proven to enhance the athletic performance of professional and amateur athletes alike: the ArmourBite Mouthguard from Under Armour. Dr. Scott Wagner at Eccella in Jacksonville Beach, FL, is a certified ArmourBite Mouthguard provider who will not only protect your teeth, he’ll up your game.
Whether you play a contact or non-contact sport, a mouthguard is critical for protecting your lips, teeth, gums and mouth. So, if you’re going to wear a mouthguard anyway, why not choose one that does more than the rest?
The Secret of the ArmourBite Mouthguard
The ArmourBite Mouthguard enhances athletic performance by preventing teeth clenching. When you are engaged in athletic competition, there is a natural tendency to clench you teeth. This stems from the brain’s primitive “fight or flight” hard wiring. Clenching your teeth causes the body to release cortisol, the stress hormone, which can cause fatigue and interrupt concentration.
An ArmourBite Mouthguard prevents teeth clenching, thereby reducing stress. In addition, this mouthguard shifts the jaw forward to alleviate jaw pressure and enlarge airway openings. The combined effect is better performance on the field, on the court, on the track, in the gym or wherever you work out.
