Getting a Good Night’s Sleep

If you are not getting enough sleep, or find yourself waking up tired, visit DesignDentistry today. Dr Ian Maratos has the expertise to diagnose and treat your sleep disorder.

Exhaustion, anxiety and tension can all occur in people that have trouble sleeping. Do you know what is causing these issues? Disorders such as sleep apnoea happen when the walls of your throat come together or collapse while you are asleep. This blocks off the upper part of the airway and could cause you to wake up hundreds of times every night.

If you have sleep issues this can be treated after a diagnosis at DesignDentistry and a custom treatment plan can lead you to the first good night’s sleep in years.

While the restriction or collapse of the airway can be both disruptive and distressing for patients who endure the effects of breathing disruption during sleep, in some circumstances sleep disorders can be treated by an oral splint (MAS), bite correction or oral surgery. At DesignDentistry we will identify the most appropriate path forward for you which will give you the best possible result.

If an oral splint is used, the results can be dramatic, simply by wearing it while you sleep. The MAS has a number of advantages:

  • It is a dental device resembling a custom fitted mouth guard
  • It is comfortable, easy to use, unobtrusive and worn only during sleep
  • It has been proven effective through extensive research and clinical trials
  • It permits full range of mouth opening and closing
  • It minimises disruption to normal oral functions like speech, drinking and yawning
