Snoring is not just antisocial and the source of much marital disharmony – it can actually be detrimental to your health!
With approximately 20% of the adult population, and 60% of men over the age of 40 snoring regularly, it’s easy to believe that snoring is relatively harmless. So let’s look at the reasons you snore and the effects on your general health
Snoring and sleep apnoea can sometimes be linked to tooth & jaw clenching and grinding, so your dentist may be the first port of call for the detection of sleep apnoea.
The treatment consists of firstly a correct diagnosis of sleep apnoea by use of an electronic device (BTI Biotechnologies APNiA®) which measures your respiratory flow, the oxygen levels in your blood, your heart rate, body position and snoring.
The device is comfortable and easy for you to use at home to wear overnight. You then return the device from which we make a diagnosis using specialist software and, if appropriate, an intra oral night-time splint can then be offered and custom made to help reduce snoring and further risks of sleep apnoea.
You don’t have to be a registered patient of the practice to benefit from this treatment. So just give us a call. You will need a consultation in the first instance and we can go from there. The consultation is £40 and treatment costs are from £750
