Snoring is no fun for anybody. It may disturb the sleep of the sufferer and their partner, and good sleep is vital to overall health and wellbeing. But did you know that Bond Street Dental is able to assist in fixing problematic snoring?

What is snoring? Relaxed airways can collapse in sleep, producing soft tissue vibrations during breathing – creating the disruptive noise we know as snoring. With an oral snoring device, the airway remains open, allowing easier breathing and preventing snoring and, usually, mild sleep apnoea (when the airwave above the voice box becomes blocked by collapsing airways, briefly stopping breathing and prompting the brain to send an alert, which often results in waking the sleeper with a sudden snort.)

A mandibular advancement splint called the SomnoMed MAS™ is a custom made oral appliance worn during sleep hours to aid in the treatment of snoring and mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. Treatment involves one initial appointment to take impressions of the upper and lower jaws, followed by a second appointment to fit the appliance.

In most circumstances, a consultation with a medical practitioner or sleep specialist is required, prior to proceeding with the construction of a snoring device.
