There has been a recent surge of interest and research about snoring, sleep apnoea and what can be done to help patients. These conditions are caused by the closure of soft tissues in the back of the throat, leading to obstruction of the airway.
Diagnosis involves a thorough dental examination and a sleep study assessment carried out by a trained sleep physician. Afterwards, we will consult with the sleep physician to recommend a course of treatment.
A common option is a dental appliance worn while sleeping to reposition the lower jaw, preventing the throat’s soft tissues from closing.
