Anti-Snoring Appliances

Snoring occurs when the soft tissues of the palate and throat vibrate together.

Mandibular Advancement Splints (anti-snoring appliances) are designed to gently posture the jaw forward to increase the space between the soft palate and the back of the throat.

The appliances have a high (90%) success rate. They may take a little while to adapt to wearing and may cause increased salivation for a short time.

The appliances are individually made and fitted over two appointments. A follow up appointment is required to check the appliance.

Two designs are available, fixed and functional.

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea

In some cases breathing may stop for a short time. This is called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). OSA can result in fatigue, irregular heart-beat, and other symptoms.

OSA should be assessed by your Doctor or a dedicated Sleep Disorder Clinic.
