If you (and your partner’s) nights are disturbed by frequent snoring, we can provide a custom-made device to help eliminate this noisy problem. Around a third of adults snore and there are a number of factors that can make you more susceptible including obesity, drinking alcohol, smoking and allergies.
Snoring occurs because the airways in your head and neck narrow when you sleep, due to a relaxing of the muscles. This alters the air pressure and leads to vibration of the soft tissues in the throat and behind the tongue.
An anti-snoring device can stop the lower jaw from dropping into a position that narrows the airways.
- We take impressions of your teeth and create a tailor-made appliance which is designed to fit comfortably.
- You will wear this anti-snoring device at night to help keep your airways open.
Anti-snoring devices can also help protect teeth from bruxism (teeth grinding) and treat mild sleep apnoea.
