Dental Snoring Devices Woodville

At Incredible Smiles Woodville Dr Anisha Sanghavi (Dentist) offers custom anti-snoring devices that can help you and your partner get a better night’s sleep. Private health insurance usually covers these appliances.

Why Do People Snore?

Snoring is usually caused when soft tissues in our airway collapse and vibrate against one another. It can be aggravated by sinus infections, weight gain, alcohol use, or even sleep apnoea. When you lie down at night and your tongue slips back towards your throat, it may rest against your tonsils or roof of your mouth, causing tissue blockage or audible vibration noises whenever you breathe.

How Can an Oral Sleep Appliance Help?

Dental sleep devices position your lower jaw a little further forward than normal. So when you sleep, your jaw doesn’t slip back and cause your oral tissues to block your airway. As a result, you’ll breathe better, snore less, and get a better night’s rest.

Each custom sleep appliance comes with a three-year warranty and is fitted to the individual for efficacy and comfort. The nylon-based device fits over both the upper and lower teeth to position the jaw correctly.

When to Get a Sleep Study

Since snoring may be indicative of a breathing disorder like sleep apnoea, we will guide you through the process of having a sleep test conducted. That way the appropriate treatment is prescribed and administered.

People with sleep apnoea may not always snore, but they will usually experience ongoing fatigue, lethargy, difficulty concentrating or fall asleep throughout the day. In reality, they usually wake up frequently throughout the night without ever realising it.

Can I Use an Oral Appliance Instead of a CPAP Machine?

In some cases, possibly. It depends on the type of sleep apnoea you have and what treatment your respiratory physician prescribes. An oral sleep device may be a good substitute if you’re travelling and don’t want to take a bulky machine with you.
