What are Snoring Devices?

A snoring device is a custom made appliance that we can make in house in our dental lab.

It is a medical device that is worn at night time to change the position of the jaw so that there is a more easy pathway of breathing.

The Benefits Of Snoring Devices

Snoring devices help prevent snoring and let you get a good nights sleep.

The benefits to your health can be huge. Sleep apnoaea (a common type of snoring where you briefly and frequently stop sleeping throughout the night) can cause large increases in blood pressure and cause long term heart problems.

It also leaves you tired throughout the day and at greater risk of falling asleep whilst driving.

The Process

Once you make an appointment with 3Dental, the dentist will discuss the various types of snoring devices we can provide.

These devices are like mouthguards specifically made and tailored to your mouth that you wear throughout the night.

An impression is taken and from that our lab will fabricate the device which the dentist will fit and adjust so as to make it more comfortable.

Commonly Asked Questions

Do anti snoring devices work?

There are loads of anti snoring devices on the market, but before spending your money on any of them, you need to find out what is causing you to snore.

If your snoring is constant and it is taking sleeping hours off you or your partner, it might be the time to look for professional help.

After a diagnosis, the doctor can recommend an appropriate device.

 

Is snoring bad for your health?

Nearly everyone snores now and then, so if it occurs occasionally, without other associated symptoms, it may not be a problem. 

However, snoring can be a sign of underlying breathing problems during sleep, like a warning sign of  sleep apnea, that is a potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts.

In this case, you should look for professional help, because it can increase the risk of high blood pressure and heart problems, because when breathing is interrupted, blood oxygen levels abruptly drop.  

 

Why is my snoring getting worse?

Snoring often worsens as we get older.

That happens for a number of reasons such as

  • loss of muscular tone
  • weight gain
  • increase of alcohol and medication consumption
  • hormonal changes (specially for women)

 

What is snoring a sign of?

Snoring occurs due to the vibration of tissues within the throat when the airway muscles relax during sleep.

Most commonly, this is due to turbulent airflow affecting the soft palate, uvula, or base of the tongue.

Difficulty breathing through the nose may predispose toward mouth breathing and snoring.

If the mouth opens at night, the lower jaw and tongue may shift backwards, affecting airflow through the throat.

When snoring is loud and accompanied by daytime sleepiness and a lack of feeling refreshed in the morning, it may be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea.
