Snoring can be an indicator of an underlying condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). OSA is an interruption of breathing during sleep caused by the tongue and / or excessive tissue completely blocking the airway. In the short term, OSA sufferers are more likely to have headaches, lack of energy and productivity; however, in the long term they are at a higher risk of developing high blood pressure and heart and lung problems.
Snoring and mild OSA can be treated easily and effectively at Definitive Dental with the SomnoDent MAS treatment. Treatment involves the use of a splint which is worn at night while you sleep. It is similar to a custom fitting mouth guard and does not stop you from opening or closing your mouth, yawning or talking. It is comfortable to wear.
