What is sleep dentistry?
Many people suffer from breathing difficulties during sleep, causing snoring or even obstructive sleep apnoea. If you suffer from this problem, you will be pleased to know that there is now a solution. There are a variety of mouthpieces or oral devices that can prevent your lower jaw from dropping back whist sleeping, which closes off your airways. This will mean that your airways stay open and you will be able to breathe more easily during sleep, stopping you from snoring.
Your dental professional will take impressions of your teeth and make a custom-made, plastic mouthpiece to fit you comfortably. This will only need to be worn at night and will open up your airway significantly, enabling you to get a better night’s sleep and, in turn, help improve your overall health and wellbeing.
