Over 40% of the adult population snore, but it can take them up to 18 years before they seek help.

What is snoring?

Snoring occurs when the airflow is partially obstructed at the back oft he throat, causing noisy vibrations during sleep. In many cases snoring doesn’t wake the snorer, it disturbs the person who shares the same room or living space.

What is obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA)?

OSA is a serious condition which occurs when the throat muscles relax completely and the airway fully closes at various intervals during sleep. The sufferer stops breathing at times and may wake gasping for air.

OSA can have severe side effects on the sufferer’s everyday life including feeling exhausted, wanting to doze off at any time and an inability to concentrate.

Solution & why are our devices popular?

Many anti-snoring appliances available on the market have been reported as being bulky or having restricted movement – making them uncomfortable to wear.

The appliances, available from your dentist, are more streamlined and comfortable because they allow movement of the jaw from slide to slide, yet still prevent the sufferer from snoring.

Both of these appliances are available for your clinician to prescribe. Your clinician will decide which design best suits your individual needs.
