Snoring Devices

Does the following sound familiar to you? Waking up in the morning with a sleep deprived unhappy partner who has been kept up all night from your snoring, or a full day of naps because your snoring kept disturbing your own sleep? Well, you are not alone, approximately 45% of people snore sometimes and 25% of people snore on a regular basis.

Snoring occurs due to the vibration of tissues in the throat when the airway muscles relax during sleep. This is due to unstable airflow affecting the soft palate, uvula, or the tongue. Snoring is seen as harmless by many, but if left untreated, could cause more serious issues. A condition called sleep apnoea is very common in people who snore. It is when the person snoring stops breathing briefly and frequently through the night. Sleep apnoea can lead to an increase in blood pressure and can lead to heart problems in the future.

If you are one of these people that is prone to snoring, then a snoring device may be the perfect solution for you. A snoring device is a medical device that is worn at night-time to alter the position that the jaw sits in so that there is a clearer pathway of breathing.

An anti-snoring device is the best option to stop snoring when you sleep and to help you get a better night’s sleep. An anti-snoring device helps you get more rest which means you can function better during the day.

We work with both Somnomed and Myobrace regarding snoring devices.

SomnoMed and Myobrace both offer oral device’s, these appliances help to alleviate snoring by slightly advancing the sleeper’s lower jaw, correcting tongue position and opening the bite, which has the effect of opening the airway. Your Dentist will advise which of these would be best suited for your individual situation.

SomnoMed is the world’s largest supplier of oral sleep apnea devices, operating in 28 countries.
