Snoring and sleep apnoea solutions
Whoever snores usually falls asleep first. If this is you, speak to us about improving your quality of sleep. If not you, but in fact this is your partner, don’t put up with it. Bring your partner to see us so you can take a step towards you both getting a better night’s rest.
Snoring and sleep apnoea can reduce the quality of your sleep – and in turn, cause more serious health problems, such as chronic fatigue and heart complications. At Dentists of East Melbourne, our team is committed to identifying and addressing these conditions to help you get a restful sleep.
Sleep apnoea is a disorder where people suffer from obstructed breathing or a lack of breathing while sleeping. During obstructive sleep apnoea, people experience a repeated inability to inhale properly.
Snoring, while seemingly harmless, is a symptom of sleep apnoea. This can lead to chronic sleep apnoea, which has more serious health implications as it reduces oxygen levels in the bloodstream. Outcomes can include heart disease, high blood pressure, headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, memory problems, and even psychological problems. Such implications can take a toll on your every day activities, and prevent you from living life to the fullest.
Snoring and sleep apnoea can result in both the sleeper and their partner waking multiple times throughout the night. This disrupts sleeping patterns for both parties – leaving both the snorer and their partner deprived of mental and physical energy in the mornings (as well as drowsiness as the day progresses).
If you want to alleviate snoring or sleep apnoea, speak to Dentists of East Melbourne today. Our clinicians will examine your condition and help find a custom solution for you.
In most cases, we recommend Somnomed, a non-invasive dental device that enables you to breathe more easily. Somnomed appliances are custom made. They gently position your lower jaw forwards to open your airway. Personally fitted by an experienced member of our team, these devices help you get the deep sleep that you and your partner need. It also has the added benefit of preventing teeth grinding at night.
Should you be experiencing more complex and/or severe symptoms, our team will collaborate with medical specialists – and as always, ensure your case is handled with the utmost medical care and attention. The end result is less stress and healthier wellbeing for you and your family.
