Put Snoring and Sleep Apnoea to Bed With OPTISLEEP

person snoring in bedDo you often wake up feeling exhausted and unrefreshed? Is falling asleep while watching TV or working at your desk a common occurrence for you? If you can’t get a good night’s sleep due to your partner’s loud snoring, we want to help you address the issue. Chronic snoring may be a symptom of sleep apnoea, a serious sleep disorder that causes breathing pauses known as obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA).

Understanding Snoring & Sleep Apnoea

Snoring or noisy breathing while you sleep is a warning sign that your upper airway might be obstructed. Although not all snorers have sleep apnoea, if left untreated, chronic snoring may have adverse effects on sleep quality and health.

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a common disorder that causes your airway to become blocked while you’re asleep and may cause you to stop breathing, repeatedly throughout the night. These interruptions can leave you feeling exhausted throughout the day and affect the quality of shut-eye for both you and your partner.

Recognising the Symptoms

Here are some common symptoms of chronic snoring and sleep apnoea:

  • Loud snoring and restless slumber
  • High blood pressure
  • Bruxism (teeth clenching and grinding)
  • Chronic fatigue or depression
  • Memory problems
  • Low libido
  • Weight gain

The Importance of Getting Treatment

Living with untreated chronic snoring and sleep apnoea could have significant consequences for your health. It can increase the risk of serious conditions such as high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, heart failure, and depression. Sleep apnoea has also been associated with a higher likelihood of developing dementia, Alzheimer’s, and Parkinson’s disease. Additionally, chronic snoring can negatively impact the sleep, mood, and relationships of those close to you.

Our Approach at Hugh Fleming Dentistry

At our dental practice, we offer a comprehensive approach to assessing and treating chronic snoring and sleep apnoea. Our team will provide you with a thorough evaluation, including an oral exam, a 3D scan of your upper airways, and a take-home sleep study to assess your level of snoring and the risk of OSA.

We recommend the OPTISLEEP custom-designed oral appliance, which effectively treats snoring for mild to moderate OSA. This appliance is also suitable for those with severe OSA who are unable or unwilling to undergo CPAP therapy or surgery. By positioning the lower jaw and tongue forward, the appliance keeps the upper airway open, preventing snoring and breathing pauses.

Benefits of OPTISLEEP

Here are some of the main benefits of the OPTISLEEP oral appliance:

  • Durability
  • Comfort
  • Custom-designed for optimal fit
  • Superior quality
  • Flexibility for individual needs
