Snoring is the noise caused by partial closure of the airways due to the relaxation of the soft tissue in the upper throat. In extreme cases, partial closure of the airways can result in a drop in oxygen reaching the lungs. This is indicative of obstructive sleep apnoea(OSA), where our body is starved of oxygen for a short period of time.
Snoring and sleep apnoea can have an immense impact on the sufferer and their family:
At Tadley Dental Care, your dentist can give you a snoring assessment which involves using clinically recommended measures to best understand you and your concerns. If the assessment finds that OSA is a factor that needs further investigation, you will be referred to your GP who may suggest a sleep study to accurately check for OSA.
If you snore or have mild to moderate sleep apnoea, your dentist will likely recommend a mandibular advancement splint(MAS) as a treatment.
Boasting both comfort and efficiency, the Sleepwell™ is a two-piece appliance with a soft inner lining that is self-adjusting for optimum effectiveness.
