Stopping Snoring and Addressing Sleep Apnoea
Many people assume ear, nose and throat specialists are the only people who can treat snoring and sleep apnoea – but dentists can too.
This abnormal breathing noise occurs when airway muscles fail to function normally, causing very loud vibrations to resonate whenever air passes through the soft palate. When the tongue also falls back over the airway and breathing stops, then sleep apnoea is occurring. Both conditions can be treated.
Oral and dental appliances (also known as mandibular advancement splints) are a solution for many people. The dental appliance has the effect of pulling the lower jaw forward, maintaining an open airway during sleep and also preventing the tongue from falling back.
