Does Snoring/ Sleep apnoea make you feel tired and lower in energy? Do you have poor quality of sleep most nights? Does your partner blame you for their tiredness too? Here is how we can help.

What causes us to snore?

Snoring

When we’re asleep, the muscles in our necks relax. Sometimes, they relax so much that the upper airway (the nose and throat) partially closes, narrowing the passageway in which air travels to our lungs. This narrowing of your airway causes a vibration in the throat when you breathe, which causes the sound of snoring. 1 in 5 adults are affected.

Sleep Apnoea

Many snorers develop episodes of obstructive sleep apnoea over time. Sleep apnoea occurs when the neck muscles relax to a point where they fully obstruct the airways for 10 seconds or more. In severe cases, these obstructions, or apnoeas, can last up to two minutes.

Treatment options

We offer multiple options for anti-snoring, called MMA (Mandibular Advancement Appliances) which bring the lower jaw forward opening the airway. One example is the Somnowell. A lifetime solution to snoring, this can change your sleeping habits for the better.

The process begins with a detailed sleep and snoring consultation to analyse your precise needs and how bad the problem is. It sometimes involves a referral to ENT. You will also need to have impressions taken of your bite for fitting purposes. There are options available for different budgets and the difference they can make is astounding.

Dr Judson is a silver, certified full range provider for Somnowell and, having helped a large number of patients, can talk you through the devices with a high level of knowledge and practice. The slimline, durable device is easy to clean and maintain and can transform your snoring to improve your partner’s, and your own sleep. Call us today for more information.

I struggled with broken sleep

I struggled with broken sleep through waking myself up with a snore or being woken up by my husband for snoring for a few years. Having my Somnowell MAA fitted was a really positive feeling – I was able to do something about it.  I am delighted with the results. I now wear it most nights – even when I am away travelling without my husband. If I don’t wear it I feel and see the difference. It is surprisingly comfortable to wear.

I’m happy to report it’s great

You asked me to let you know how I was getting on with my anti snoring device. I’m happy to report it’s great. Of the three devices I’ve worn this one is much improved on the others and is the most comfortable.

I’m pleased I made the decision to keep to the model that I was used to so thank you very much for your hard work in providing it for me. It’s very much appreciated. My husband said he’s not heard me snoring so that must be good. I wish more people would realise that there are remedies available and that they do not have to accept the problem.
