Alleviate the health risks of snoring and sleep apnoea
Snoring results when the tongue and soft tissues vibrate in the back of the throat, it happens during sleep when your jaw moves back.
What causes snoring and sleep apnoea?
- Some medications
- Narrow airways
Snoring becomes a problem when it evolves into sleep apnoea. Sleep apnoea is an issue because the airway becomes so constricted that you are momentarily caused to stop breathing during sleep. This can actually happen hundreds of times a night without sufferers even realising.
The common symptoms of sleep apnoea
Sleep apnoea and the lack of sleep have a number of associated health risks. The risk of high blood pressure, stroke and heart disease are all increased.
Here at Caroline Springs Dental we provide a range of services aimed at helping you alleviate snoring and sleep apnoea.
Oral appliance therapy
Oral appliance therapy involves using a custom fabricated device during sleep. The device helps align your bite and prevents your jaw from moving, this combats the collapsing of soft tissues in the back of the throat.
