If nighttime in your household is more snore-filled than sleep-filled, we may be able to help you. If you’re conscious about snoring, or you live with a snorer, and you dream of silent nights, why not get in touch?
There are many reasons why people snore. In many cases, snoring is a short-term issue, which is often caused by sleeping on your back, drinking alcohol before bed or illnesses that make you feel congested, such as colds and flu. In other cases, when snoring is a more of a frequent or recurrent problem, snoring may be linked to smoking, being overweight or allergies. The noises you hear when people snore are caused by the vibration of the soft tissue at the back of the throat.
If somebody snores on a regular basis, this may indicate that they’re not getting enough oxygen while they sleep, which can be a result of the airway being constricted. If making changes, such as switching to sleeping on your side or losing weight, haven’t worked, we may recommend using a device to open up the airways and increase oxygen flow while you sleep. We can provide a mandibular repositioning device or a tongue retaining device. The mandibular repositioning appliance is more commonly used, and it helps to keep the airway open during the night by pushing the lower jaw forward slightly.
