Sleep Apnoea Dentist in Victoria
Did you know that our Victoria dentist could be the best one to help you with your sleeping disorder? Snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea often relate back to the oral anatomy and problems with your soft tissues blocking the airway at the back of your throat. Our Victoria sleep dentist offers SomnoMed appliances to help you sleep more soundly as soon as the first night of use. In fact, they’re often preferred by people who are CPAP intolerant.
What are SomnoMed Sleep Appliances?
SomnoMed uses continuous open airway therapy to position your jaw in a way that allows free oxygen flow. Each one is customised to fit your specific mouth, for comfort and effectiveness. The mouthpiece gently guides your lower jaw slightly forward, so that your tongue and soft palate do not seal off the upper airway. Thus, you’re able to sleep more soundly. It’s not uncommon to be able to give up your CPAP entirely!
Symptoms of Sleep Apnoea
You may have a sleeping disorder if you are experiencing signs of:
• Flat, worn teeth
• Frequent headaches
• Jaw pain
• Sore throat
• Acid reflux
• Fatigue and memory loss
