Snoring & Sleep Apnoea

Snoring has become so common. Kids to adults snore. Because snoring generally happens in private settings, people are not necessarily compelled to address it. Snoring is a unhealthy condition and leads to severe health issues if left untreated. There are several reasons as to why people snore and a lot of the people who snore eventually develop Sleep Apnoea which impacts quality of life and increases chances of morbidity. Our Dentists can investigate the causes of as to why snoring is occurring and also discuss with you the cause and effects and finally solution,that may involve other practices such as ENT specialists, Chiropractors etc.

A series of oral devices or mouthpieces are now available and can be fitted by a dentist that will address your snoring problems by preventing the lower jaw from dropping back during sleep thereby preventing the closure of your airways, which will stop you from snoring.

Such a custom-made mouth piece is made from impressions taken of your teeth to ensure they fit you comfortably. Made from a hard wearing plastic, the mouthpiece is worn at night and works by holding the bottom jaw in a slightly forward position. This position opens up your airway significantly allowing you to breathe better and as a result sleep better too.
