Sleep Apnoea Treatment

Woman covering her ears with a pillow while man snoresDo you wake up feeling exhausted? Does your partner complain of your heavy snoring? Are you bothered by a dry mouth or bad breath? If these sound like you, you might have obstructive sleep apnoea, commonly referred to as sleep apnoea. This sleep disorder is detrimental to your health. It means that you take shallow or short breaks in your breathing during sleeping hours.

You won’t just feel like you’re not well-rested if you suffer from sleep apnoea. It’s also associated with problems like high blood pressure, heart disease, a loss of concentration, excessive drowsiness and lower performance at school or work.

Do You Have Sleep Apnoea?

The good news is that your dental assessments can pick up many of the symptoms involved in sleep apnoea.

These signs include:

  • A history of poor sleep
  • Loud snoring
  • An inability to breathe through your nose
  • A habit of mouth breathing
  • A constricted or narrow upper palate
  • Worn down teeth from grinding
  • Dry Mouth
  • Bad breath
  • Tooth decay

Having an evaluation is the first step to finding a solution to your sleep apnoea. When we identify that you’ve had it, we can recommend the proper course of action. There may be treatment options or we may have a sleep appliance created for you.

Opening Up Your Airway

An oral appliance is a simple solution often used to address sleep apnoea. An oral split can fit snugly over your teeth. It positions your lower jaw forward to allow air to move through your airway. Your body will no longer have to fight to breathe, which is what wakes you up from sleep.
