Most of us snore occasionally, but if snoring has become a persistent problem in your household, you don’t need to put up with sleepless nights. With our effective treatments, we can help to restore silence and ensure you get a good night’s sleep every night.
What causes snoring?
Snoring often results from illness, congestion, sleeping position or drinking alcohol. However, if you snore on a regular basis, this is usually due to the following risk factors: allergies, being overweight and smoking. Sometimes, changing your sleeping position and adapting your daily routine can help, but often, more dramatic changes are required. Losing weight often benefits people who snore and the best way to do this is to combine regular exercise with a healthy, calorie-controlled diet. Giving up smoking and cutting down your alcohol intake, especially during the evenings, can also help.
How can we help?
In cases where snoring cannot be conquered by lifestyle changes alone, we may recommend using a specially designed device called a mandibular advancement appliance, which adjusts the position of the jaw and moves it forward slightly. This helps to ensure that the airways remain open when you sleep. The device is not painful and it shouldn’t make it difficult for you to get to sleep.
