Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Options

Woman covering her ears with a pillow while man snoresIf you suffer from snoring or sleep apnoea, you might not be the only person in your family having a hard time getting a good night’s rest. Lack of sleep can impact both you and your loved ones. Let Hoppers Crossing Dental know if you suffer from conditions like:

  • Heart disease
  • Depression
  • Memory impairment
  • High blood pressure
  • Headaches
  • Acid reflux
  • Flat, worn teeth

These are all symptoms and side-effects of sleep apnoea. Depending on the type of sleeping disorder you have, some forms may be manageable by wearing an oral sleep appliance. It’s a great alternative for people who are CPAP intolerant.

Wearing an Oral Sleep Appliance

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is caused by a collapse of soft tissues at the back of the mouth, near the upper airway. Wearing an oral appliance such as a SomnoDent can help to naturally open the airway, thus eliminating snoring and improving oxygen intake. Other types of appliances are also available. Our Hoppers Crossing dentists are happy to discuss your concerns and work with your sleep physician to find a solution that helps you protect your overall health.
