Snoring and sleep apnoea

Nearly everyone snores occasionally but it can be a chronic problem when it becomes so persistent or loud that it affects your ability to sleep. This is called disruptive snoring, and it may be a symptom of obstructive sleep apnoea.

Snoring occurs when muscles in the throat relax when you sleep and then vibrate as air flows past them as you breathe.

Sleep apnoea is when these muscles relax so much that your airway becomes blocked and you stop breathing temporarily because air can’t get into your lungs. This can happen for a few seconds or much longer, and the pattern may be repeated many times during the night.

Can you prevent snoring?

Lifestyle changes such as losing weight and avoiding alcohol near bedtime can help to stop snoring.

You can also try:

  • Sleeping on your side.
  • Staying well hydrated.
  • Taking a hot shower to relax nasal passages.

Medical devices called sleep appliances are also available to treat disruptive snoring and sleep apnoea.

How sleep appliances work

How sleep appliances work

Dentists provide custom-made oral sleep appliances to help people suffering from chronic snoring and mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnoea.

The most widely used sleep appliance is a mandibular advancement device (MAD). This opens your airway by moving your lower jaw forward. It also prevents your tongue from folding backwards and causing airway obstruction.

Launceston Dental sleep appliances are made with quality materials, using advanced 3D digital technology. This ensures a comfortable fit sand effectiveness in improving quality of sleep and reducing the risk of serious health issues associated with sleep apnoea.

Contact us if your snoring has become problematic or you think you may have obstructive sleep apnoea.
