What Causes Snoring?

Snoring occurs when the soft tissues of our airways collapse and vibrate against each other in the back of our throat. Weight gain can amplify snoring, enlarged tonsils, sleep apnoea, or alcohol consumption. Sometimes it’s simply a result of your tongue sliding back towards your throat at night, resulting in audible vibrations.

Will an Oral Snoring Appliance Help Me?

When you wear an oral sleep device, it brings your lower jaw slightly forward to prevent soft tissues from collapsing in the back of your throat. When fitted properly, they help you breathe better and enjoy a higher quality of sleep.

Every custom-made device includes a three-year warranty. Unlike sports guards, snore appliances fit over both your upper and lower teeth. Best of all, it’s customised to your unique anatomy for maximum effectiveness and comfort.

Sleep Apnoea and Sleep Studies

A sleep study will be necessary to rule out any medical conditions, such as sleep apnoea. The testing process is quite straightforward, and we will guide you throughout the process. Depending on your diagnosis, we can then administer a custom snore guard.

Individuals with obstructive sleep apnoea may or may not snore, and the condition is usually treated with a CPAP. Common symptoms include falling asleep throughout the day, difficulty focusing, fatigue, weight gain and depression.

Are Snoring Devices Substitutes for CPAP Machines?

Sometimes, yes. But the type of sleep apnoea you’re diagnosed with is a determining factor. It also depends on the recommendations of your respiratory physician and what treatment they prescribe. In many situations, oral snoring devices are ideal for traveling or as an occasional substitute for bulkier CPAP machines.
