FAQs

HOW DO ANTI-SNORING APPLIANCES WORK?

Oral appliance therapy opens your airway to help prevent blockage (obstructions) caused by your tongue falling to the back of your mouth and throat- one of the major causes of snoring. They are custom-made to fit your mouth and provide proper management of snoring and various levels of sleep apnoea.


IS AN ORAL APPLIANCE RIGHT FOR ME?

An anti-snoring oral appliance may be effective if you suffer from:

  • Snoring
  • Sleep apnoea
  • Low energy
  • Daytime sleepiness / tiredness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Mood swings / irritability
  • Depression
  • Headaches
  • Grinding and/or teeth clenching
  • Reduced ability to cope with stress

WHAT CONDITIONS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH SNORING AND SLEEP APNOEA?

Poor quality or inadequate sleep caused by excessive snoring and sleep apnoea can affect your life in many ways beyond simply feeling tired or drowsy.

A child who suffers from either of these conditions can have growth, behaviour and school performance issues and women who develop apnoea during pregnancy (a common occurrence) can develop pre-eclampsia.

Sleep apnoea and snoring can also increase your chances of:

  • High Blood Pressure
  • Heart Attacks And Strokes
  • Headaches
  • Acid Reflux
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Reduced life expectancy and quality of life
  • Reduced cognitive awareness and increased risks of accidents

Don’t forget your partner and family can also experience interrupted sleep from your snoring.
