Snoring & Sleep Apnoea

Simple snoring is the noise resulting from a partial closure of the airway during sleep. It is estimated that over 45% of the population snores, leading to disrupted sleep for the sufferer–and their bed partner.

Ranging from 50-100 decibels, the equivalent of a pneumatic drill, snoring can lead to relationship issues, daytime sleepiness, increased stress and depression if left untreated. Less often, snoring can also take place as part of a more serious condition, obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), which is potentially life-threatening.

Patients suffering from snoring often go untreated, as they are too embarrassed to seek help for their problem. Those that do try to get help often consult their GP for a solution, where certain lifestyle changes may be suggested including, weight loss, different sleeping positions, staying well hydrated and avoiding alcohol.

What many patients are unaware of is that dentists can provide a clinically proven solution to treat their snoring with a Mandibular Advancement Splint. The Sleepwell MAS is the most clinically proven for the treatment of snoring and mild to moderate OSA.

Tom Rayner has been trained to offer Sleepwell treatment.  You can book a consultation to get a sleepwell appliance here:

FAQs

What is the Sleepwell?2021-02-10T14:29:32+00:00

The Sleepwell is a dental appliance, worn at night that stops or reduces your snoring. It consists of two pieces and is designed to slot over both dental arches.

How does it work?2021-02-10T14:29:55+00:00

The Sleepwell features a small mechanism that holds the lower jaw in a forward position. This prevents the airway from collapsing and the tissues at the back of the throat from vibrating, reducing the snoring sound.

What does it cost?2022-04-05T09:28:50+01:00

The cost of a Sleepwell appliance is £ 400

Does it work?2021-02-10T14:30:40+00:00

Yes – it is the most clinically proven dental device available for the treatment of snoring. Unique design features mean you can adjust the position of your lower jaw yourself for optimum comfort and effectiveness.

Is it comfortable?2021-02-10T14:31:04+00:00

The Sleepwell has been designed with a soft inner lining and full side-to-side movement to increase comfort. Initially, you may experience an increase in saliva whilst wearing the Sleepwell, or feel that your teeth do not bite together properly in the morning. These are normal short-term issues and will lessen with time.

How do I start treatment?2021-02-10T14:31:34+00:00

You will need to book an initial appointment with your dentist to diagnose your condition and have your impressions taken. You will be asked to complete a pre-screening questionnaire that will help your dentist identify the severity of your snoring.  You will then need a second appointment to collect your Sleepwell and learn how to use and adjust it.
