Discover the dental solution to Snoring and Sleep apnoea at The Smile Centre located in Rayleigh, Essex

Snoring is a sleep and breathing disorder that can have a negative impact on your personal relationships, but did you know snoring may also be a symptom of a serious health risk? Snoring is caused when the soft tissues at the back of the throat collapse- partially blocking the airway and causing the vibrations and noises that you experience during sleep. If these soft tissues at the back of the throat completely block the airway during sleep this is called obstructive sleep apnoea; a serious disease that causes a cycle of cessation of breathing and subsequent awakening during sleep.

Sleep apnoea has been linked to an increased chance of a range of serious health risks including:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Workplace and Driving accidents

If you suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnoea or snoring, at our dental centre located in Rayleigh, Essex we can provide oral appliance therapy to properly align your throat and help you achieve a
good night’s sleep.

Our customized dental splints are worn during sleep and help to properly align the jaw to create a clear airway during sleep. This actively reduces and can even eliminate the presence of snoring and sleep apnoea in our patients. If you snore or suffer from excessive fatigue during daylight hours, then you may wish to book a snoring and sleep apnoea consultation at our dental practice.
