Snorer’s are most at risk of Sleep Apnoea

This narrowing of the airways – where the flow of air through the throat becomes restricted – produces the sound known as ‘snoring’.

The anti snoring and anti sleep apnoea device is worn while your asleep to prevent your jaw and tongue from dropping into the back of your throat and restricting your airway.

At Dental On Park 3 simple appointments are required:

  1. We Fit you for your at home Sleep Study at a cost of $350.
  2. Results get analysed and if sleep Apnoea is indicated we consult with a sleep physician to confirm the Sleep Apnoea diagnosis.
  3. We discuss your treatment options depending on your individual circumstances and either organise a Sleep Apnoea Device for you, or send you to someone who will.

Sleep Apnoea itself can have many effects on your overall health.

It is categorised as mild, moderate or severe. Obstructive Sleep Apnoea devices are best used to treat moderate sleep apnoea cases. Severe cases are best treated with a CPAP machine and with other lifestyle factors.

If you haven’t been diagnosed with sleep apnoea but suspect you may be suffering from the condition, we will need to organise a sleep study to diagnose you before we make you the appliance. This can be easily arranged for you to do in the privacy of your own home, after which a sleep physician will analyse the data in collaboration with both you and us.

Generally, people who suffer from sleep apnoea will wake up several times throughout the night and will feel unusually tired in the mornings. They will also feel tired throughout the day.

The regular restriction of airflow throughout your sleep reduces the amount of oxygen that is carried to your muscles. This decrease in blood oxygen levels can have serious consequences to your overall health and well being in the long term if not treated. Not only that – you will feel more energetic once you treat your sleep apnoea and that in itself is a good reason to take it seriously and have it treated.

If you used to use a CPAP machine but got tired of using it, then the mouthguard is for you. It is a more cost effective treatment method than the sleep apnoea machine and inout opinion much more comfortable for you and your partner!.There is no noise and you are free to move around and not be bound to a machine that restricts your range of movement. And there is no noise too!

If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnoea and don’t like using a CPAP machine, or if you suspect you may be suffering from sleep apnoea, book an appointment online, or call 33698300.
