The Consequences of Poor Rest

One such issue is a snoring and breathing disorder such as obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). According to the Sleep Health Foundation, 33-45% of people sleep poorly or don’t get enough sleep each night, leaving them irritable, exhausted and making errors during their day.

You might even find your partner complaining about your snoring. Not only a consequence to your nights rest, but also your partner or loved one.

If you belong to this group, it’s time that you were evaluated by an experienced dentist who can diagnose you and help you find the solutions you need to rest easy again.

How We’ll Help You

Sleep apnoea occurs when the walls of the throat collapse or meet while you’re sleeping, blocking your airway and waking you dozens or even hundreds of times each night. It’s disruptive and distressing, but there are options for treatment. An oral splint, bite correction and oral surgery are all solutions that work for those suffering from sleep disorders. We’ll evaluate your situation, then determine the best route to treat your particular problem.

An oral splint is often the ideal situation for those suffering from OSA. The dramatic results are created from a custom-fitted device that resembles a mouthguard. It’s easy to use, comfortable and unobtrusive, permitting your mouth to open and close with minimised changes to your speech. The outcomes have been proven time and time again through clinical trials and extensive research.
