Never imagined that your dentist could help cure you or your partner from snoring?
Well, when you think about it, snoring is usually caused by vibrations of the soft palate and surrounding tissues and since we are the medical specialists in mouth matters – who better to help resolve it?
Snoring is not just annoying for your partner it also affects the snorer as well. Snoring interferes with the quality of sleep, which means you are liable to feel tired during the day. Your partner can also suffer from deprived sleep leading to the same problem.
The UK Marriage Council recently stated that in almost 25% of marital breakdowns snoring was a major factor.
Even more serious, people who snore are also at risk from sleep apnoea, which can cause high blood pressure and put a strain on the heart. Many cardiovascular surgeons now recommend treatment for snoring using dental appliances.
At Better Dental we can help snorers with a simple custom made appliance called the Mandibular Advancement Device. It fits comfortably in the mouth and gently eases the tongue and lower jaw forwards, thus preventing the soft palate from vibrating.
It’s simple and it works.
