Sleep Apnoea Relief at Just White Dental

Snoring? See a Sleep Dentist

Sleep Apnoea West RydeFor years, most people with a sleeping disorder have relied on CPAP machines to ensure their body gets the oxygen that it needs. But CPAP equipment is often bulky, cumbersome and too noisy to allow you to get the quality of sleep that you deserve.

Today we understand that there are different types of sleeping disorders, all of which are rooted in various causes. For some of our patients, finding relief is as easy as turning to a custom oral sleep appliance with our family dentist.

How Do Oral Sleep Appliances Work?

Thanks to revolutionary developments in oral sleep appliance therapy, the SomnoMed device relieve symptoms of sleep apnoea and sleep disturbances in a natural manner.

SomnoMed devices position the lower jaw in a way that creates more room at the back of the mouth (upper airway) to prevent soft tissues from collapsing against one another. The wider space facilitates better airflow, preventing oxygen deprivation or snoring.

When to See a Sleep Dentist

Our practice can perform a sleep apnoea screening during any routine dental checkup. Let us know if you’re experiencing symptoms such as

  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Weight gain
  • Headaches or migraines
  • Jaw pain
  • Teeth grinding or worn enamel
  • Snoring
  • Waking up tired

We can arrange for you to have a sleep study conducted (sometimes at home) or refer you to a medical professional for a formal diagnosis. If you have obstructive sleep apnoea, you may qualify for oral appliance therapy.

SomnoMed devices are also helpful for patients who are CPAP intolerant. In some cases, you may be able to give up using your CPAP entirely. You don’t have to resign yourself to a life of snoring and waking up feeling unrefreshed.
