SNORE GUARDS In Redcliffe

Sleeping soundly

Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) are conditions that can severely affect your quality of sleep and overall general health. Since OSA is a serious medical condition, it must be first diagnosed by a specialist.

Depending on the diagnosis and severity of the condition, some treatments for snoring and OSA include the use of a sleep guard. This is a custom designed oral appliance, similar to an orthodontic retainer or sports mouth guard that is worn while sleeping.

It is designed to maintain an open, unobstructed airway in the throat and may be used alone or in combination with other means of treating OSA. This may be general health, weight management, surgery, or CPAP machine – Continual Positive Air Pressure – a machine that pumps a continual flow of air into the throat and keeps the airway open.

Dental sleep guards or appliances work in several ways:

1. Repositioning the lower jaw, tongue, soft palate and uvula
2. Stabilising the lower jaw and tongue
3. Increasing the muscle tone of the tongue

The John Street Dental team will discuss any concerns you may have regarding poor sleep, snoring and OSA and suggest possible treatment options.
