Snoring Appliances

Snoring Appliances

A mandibular advancement splint worn in the mouth at night can be used to treat problematic snoring and sleep apnoea. The splint treats snoring and sleep apnoea by moving the lower jaw forward slightly, which tightens the soft tissue and muscles of the upper airway to prevent obstruction of the airway during sleep. The tightening created by the device also prevents the tissues of the upper airway from vibrating as air passes over them—the most common cause of snoring. We work in conjunction with your doctor or an ENT Surgeon to rule out any other obstructive problem that may be contributing to the problem.
