Do you or your partner suffer from breathing difficulties during sleep such as snoring or obstructive sleep apnoea? You might be pleased to know that dentistry may have a solution for you. A variety of devices are now available and can be fitted by a dentist that will address your snoring problems by preventing the lower jaw falling backwards obstructing the airway.
Such a custom-made device is made from impressions taken of your teeth to ensure they fit you comfortably. Made from a hard wearing plastic, the device is worn at night and works by holding the bottom jaw in a slightly forward position. This position opens up your airway significantly allowing you to breathe more easily and as a result sleep better too.
Speak to your dentist today about how your snoring problem can be addressed.
