Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea Treatment
Sleeping well at night is extremely important for maintaining good physical and mental health. Yet so many people (and consequently their partners) are unable to sleep peacefully, suffering from snoring, restlessness and, in extreme cases, choking, transiently stopping breathing as their airway collapses (obstructive sleep apnoea).
People who have disturbed sleep, with difficulty in breathing comfortably, and / or suffer from snoring, may be helped by wearing a jaw (mandibular) advancement splint at night. At Queens Gate Orthodontics we can offer help with these problems and use mandibular advancement splints invented by orthodontists.
This is a Somnowell appliance, which pushes the lower jaw forward, moving the tongue away from the back of the throat, reducing snoring.
