Can a dentist in Sydney CBD help me with my snoring?

Dentist in Sydney CBD

Whether it is you or your partner who suffers from breathing problems that result in snoring, it can cause a restless night’s sleep for more reasons than the obvious one.

Modern medicine has made it possible for techniques to be employed that help in reducing the effects of poor breathing during sleep. As more research is completed on the cause and effects of sleep apnea, scientists, developers and dentists alike are able to combine their knowledge and create devices that can be worn to change the structure of the jaw and reduce the likelihood of snoring occurring.

Spa Dental Sydney CBD invite you to discuss with us the options we have available to help patients with snoring issues. If you live with someone who snores, we understand that any non-invasive attempt to reduce these night time disruptions are a welcome gift.

How does the treatment work?

Snoring treatment is non-invasive, which means there is no need for any surgery of any kind. Treatment is simply a mouth device that is custom made to fit you and that you can wear comfortably when you go to bed.

We make our mouth devices by first creating an impression of your teeth. We do this to ensure that the device won’t slip or become uncomfortable whilst being worn. 

The device works by holding your bottom jaw in a more forward position. By doing this, it opens your airways allowing for more airflow and reducing the chance of your respiratory structures vibrate against one another.  It is this vibration which causes snoring.

Not only does this allow anyone near you to sleep better, it has been found that this improves the wearer’s own quality of sleep as well. Sleep apnea can cause sleep deprivation, resulting in drowsiness, irritability and lack of focus.  This can have serious detrimental effects on your health, as well as your social and work life.

What causes snoring?

There are many reasons why someone may snore. Snoring is largely due to the soft tissues of the soft palate and uvula relaxing. This may be because these tissues are weak, that they are excessively relaxed due to the effects of alcohol or other drugs or because there is excessive fat surrounding the area and constricting the airway.

A misaligned jaw could also be a cause, something that your dentist in Sydney CBD can identify for you. When you sleep on your back, there is the chance that your jaw drops into a poor position and forcing your tongue to the back of your mouth which can cause snoring.

Whatever the cause, snoring can be reduced through a simple and non-invasive procedure administered by your dentist in Sydney CBD. This can bring you a quality of life you didn’t know was available to you until you have received the device and tried it for yourself. All treatment carries risks. Individual consultation is required with one of our practitioners to ensure that the treatment is right for you.
