If you answered yes to any of those 3 questions, you are not alone, 2-4% of adults suffer from this condition.  If that's the case, using a sleep apnoea appliance may be the answer for you!

 

Symptoms of sleep apnoea that are often observed includes snoring, fatigue, morning headache, poor concentration, falling asleep whilst driving and disrupted sleep.  These are due to repeated episodes of obstruction to the throat, this will cause either partial or complete disruption of breathing time of 10 seconds to 1 minute.  To see how severe your sleep apnoea is, it is best to have a sleep study completed.

 

If you have been diagnosed with sleep apnoea or your partner would like to have better sleep, an sleep apnoea appliance may be the answer to your problems.  It is an appliance that is used to adjust the position of your lower jaw to allow for a wider airway.  There is no need to wear this appliance throughout the day.  For further information, contact us!!
