We Can Help You with Snoring Problems or Sleep Apnoea

Snoring & Sleep Apnoea: What Causes Snoring, Somnodent Appliance

When a patient is referred to us for a snoring problem or sleep apnoea, we do not just construct an anti-snoring oral appliance and hope for the best. In fact, many patients are not even aware that they have sleep apnoea because the symptoms may be very subtle.

A full assessment is vital to establish a successful outcome. A few simple questions are often all that is needed to establish that there is a problem.

Once established, the first thing we will do is examine you fully and refer you to a reputable sleep clinic for a sleep apnoea test. This will determine whether you suffer from sleep apnoea, and if so, how severe it is. The results of the test will determine whether you are a suitable candidate to benefit from wearing an anti-snoring appliance called the Mandibular Advancement Splint (MAS).

We will then take moulds and measurements in your mouth in order to have the MAS constructed by highly qualified technicians who specialize in this field. On completion we will check the fit of the MAS in the mouth and make the necessary adjustments to ensure that it is comfortable and working properly.

We will then have follow up visits to make any further adjustments if required.
