Articles How To Stop Snoring And Have a Peaceful Christmas Night
If you long for the peace and tranquillity described in the famous opening of The Night Before Christmas story, we can help. If you live with a snorer, or you snore on a regular basis and it’s causing havoc at home, our dental team has some incredible treatment options on offer.
How to stop snoring
Snoring is a very common issue. Although it doesn’t tend to be a major health problem, it can cause upset, especially if it’s preventing partners or housemates from getting a good night’s sleep. Snoring occurs when the vibration of the soft tissue at the back of the throat makes a noise. Most commonly, snoring is a temporary issue, which tends to surface when you’ve been drinking alcohol, you lie on your back or you’re full of cold. However, for some people, snoring is a constant, and it can have a negative impact on day to day life. If you’re struggling with snoring, we can help to restore peace.
At Harley Street Dental Studio, we have many years of experience in seeing patients who snore, and we have treatment options available. In some cases, we may recommend lifestyle changes as a means of reducing or eliminating symptoms, for example, giving up smoking, avoiding alcohol in the evenings, and losing weight, but if these don’t work, we have other options. We can provide advice to help you quit smoking and lose weight, and we can also provide a specially designed device to open up the airways and increase oxygen flow while you sleep. These options include:
- A mandibular advancement device: this appliance pushes the lower jaw forward slightly to keep the airways open
- A tongue retaining device: this device holds the tongue in position to keep the airway open while you snooze
