Snoring and Sleep Appliances at Wynyard Dental Clinic

Do you or your partner suffer from chronic snoring? What about headaches or already feeling tired when you wake up in the morning? It could be that you have a sleeping disorder such as obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). If you do, getting a better night’s rest could be as easy as a trip to Wynyard Dental Clinic, thanks to our custom oral appliances.

What Is Obstructive Sleep Apnoea?

Obstructive sleep apnoea is a sleeping disorder that occurs when your airway is blocked off at the back of your throat/mouth while you sleep. It’s typically due to soft tissues like your palate, tongue, tonsils and upper airway collapsing against one another, sealing off your airway.

  • Snoring
  • Migraines and headaches
  • TMJ pain
  • Large neck circumference
  • Flat, worn teeth
  • High blood pressure
  • Weight gain
  • Difficulty managing other health conditions, such as diabetes

How We Can Help

Since OSA originates inside your mouth, a custom oral sleep appliance may work quicker and more effectively than a bulky CPAP machine. Sleep appliances position your lower jaw in a way that prevents the soft tissues at the back of your throat from sealing off. Just wear it when you go to bed at night, then take it out the next morning. Oral appliances can be used along with existing CPAP equipment, but many people find that it replaces their need to use a machine at all.

Health Risks of Sleep Apnoea

Chronic snoring and sleep apnoea can make you feel tired during the day, but that’s actually the least of your concerns. Apnoea places a strain on your body’s immune and cardiovascular system, increasing your risk of health emergencies like heart attack and stroke. If cardiovascular disease already runs in your family, sleep apnoea shouldn’t be overlooked. Improving your sleep at night will help you feel more rested and energetic the next day. It can also alleviate headaches, muscle pain and scary situations such as falling asleep at the wheel.
