Frequently Asked Questions

Snoring is a sound that occurs when air flows past relaxed tissues in the throat, causing them to vibrate as you breathe. Sleep apnoea is a sleep disorder characterized by pauses in breathing or shallow breaths during sleep.

Snoring and sleep apnoea can be caused by a variety of factors, including obesity, alcohol consumption, smoking, nasal congestion, and sleep position.

Treatment options for snoring and sleep apnoea may include lifestyle changes, such as losing weight, avoiding alcohol and smoking, and changing sleep position. In addition, dental treatments such as mandibular advancement devices, tongue-retaining devices, and oral appliances can be used to help keep the airway open during sleep.

A mandibular advancement device is a dental appliance that is worn in the mouth during sleep. It works by pushing the lower jaw forward, which helps to keep the airway open and prevent snoring and sleep apnoea.

Dental treatments can be highly effective for treating snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnoea. However, the effectiveness of these treatments will depend on the severity of the condition and the underlying causes. It is important to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the best treatment options for your specific needs.
