Anti-Snoring Device and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea

Anti-SnoringOur dental practice can construct an anti-snoring device to help you improve your symptoms immediately. The device consists of two custom made sleep guards for your upper and lower jaws, the connector between the guards can adjust to how much you need to protrude your lower jaw forward in order to open up your airway to eliminate or reduce snoring.

Snoring can also be a sign that you may have sleep apnoea. If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnoea by your doctor, you would have been recommended a list things to do to help you improve. These include lose weight, quit smoking, avoid alcohol and tips such as sleep on your side. It is important that you follow these instructions to help manage and improve your sleep apnoea in the long run.

The procedure consists of two short appointments one week apart. First we take an accurate impression of your upper and lower teeth to make into moulds, then we fit and adjust to your jaws positions after they’ve been constructed in a dental lab. It is a simple, user friendly device which can potentially improve your sleep apnoea simply and immediately.
