You may not know that approximately 40% of the population snore and in men over 60 years of age, 60% snore. You may not realise that your dentist can offer a treatment to stop snoring.
Relationships can and do suffer from lack of sleep in the household.
Snoring may also be a sign of obstructive sleep apnoea, where the person gasps for breath when sleeping. This condition can lead to sleepiness during the day and have a negative effect on your long term health. If sleep apnoea is suspected referral to a General Medical Practitioner or Sleep Clinic will be advised by us.
The good news is that we can provide an appliance worn in the mouth at night that will help to open the air passages to reduce or eliminate snoring. The appliance we recommend is called a Silensor. Please click here for more details http://silensor.co.uk.
