It is important to get a good night's sleep to be able to carry out your daily activities and live an optimal life. Broken sleep can not only make it difficult for you to get through the day, but it can also affect your physical wellbeing and your mental health. If you or your partner suffer from breathing difficulties in your sleep, such as snoring or obstructive sleep apnoea, then you need to speak to our dentist to find out how we can help you.
Thanks to advances in dental technology there are now a variety of oral devices and mouth pieces which are available to help address your breathing problems at night so you can have a better sleep. These devices work by preventing the lower jaw from dropping backwards in your sleep so that your airway remains fully open, allowing you to breathe comfortably and stop you from snoring. Our dentist can help you select the mouthpiece which is most suitable for you and this will be individually manufactured using impressions of your mouth for an accurate and comfortable fit.
The mouthpiece is made from a strong and durable plastic which is worn in your mouth at night. It works by holding the bottom jaw in a slightly forward position whilst you sleep. This position opens up your airway significantly, allowing you to breathe better and therefore enjoy a better night's sleep. Over time you will be able to enjoy better quality of sleep on a regular basis as you are able to breathe correctly throughout the night and this will help improve your physical health and mental wellbeing so that you can make the most out of your day.
