Snoring can be a very disruptive condition for both the sufferer and their partner. At Stoke Lane Dentistry we can help treat the problem with the use of specially made mouthpieces that are designed to be worn throughout the night. These devices gently control the position of the jaw to prevent the vibration of the soft tissues in the airway that causes the snoring sound.
What are the benefits of Anti-snoring Treatment?
Lack of sleep can significantly impact a person’s wellbeing and lifestyle. Irregular sleep patterns can cause distress and anxiety as well as lead to other resulting health issues. Snoring is a very common reason for the impairment of sleep quality.
Thankfully there are solutions available. Your dentist will be happy to assess your condition and advise on the best course of action. Anti-snoring mouthpieces are a great option as they allow you breathe more easily, resulting in better, quieter sleep.
The condition can be caused by the natural shape of the airways though other common factors include lifestyle choices, sleeping position, aging and gaining weight. The sound itself is made when the neck muscles relax during sleep which allows the walls of the air passage to vibrate.
The devices work by moving the position of the jaw forward. This keeps the airways open and allows for easier breathing. The freer airflow reduces both the vibration and the resulting noise.
Firstly, impressions of the inside of the mouth need to be taken so that the new mouthpiece can be shaped to fit comfortably in place. At the second appointment your dentist will be able to give you your new, bespoke device and talk you through how to wear and adjust it for optimum effectiveness.
We aim to ensure our prices are as affordable as possible and competitive compared to other dentists in Bristol. Please call 01179 629902 to speak to a member of our team about anti-snoring treatment.
