Sleep Dentistry and Sleep Apnoea Newcastle NSW
Are you sick of waking up tired after not fulfilling your full 8 hours due to restless sleeping patterns? Terminate your snoring to secure full night’s sleep with sleep dentistry at Honeysuckle Dental…
What causes Sleep Apnoea?
Both snoring and sleep apnoea occur when your jaw is dropped back causing your tongue and the tissues at the back of your mouth to collapse into the back of your throat. The biggest difference between simple snoring and sleep apnoea is whether the tissues partially block your airways or completely block them. Sleep apnoea occurs when your airways become completely blocked and this causes the short breath or choking symptom.
Symptoms of Sleep Apnoea
- Extremely loud snoring almost every night
- Sleepiness and fatigue whether you have a full 8 hours or don’t
- Pauses in your breathing
- Choking, snorting or gasping during your sleep
- Teeth grinding during your sleep
What is Sleep Dentistry?
At Honeysuckle Dental, we treat sleep apnoea through a procedure of sleep dentistry. The treatment provided will relieve snoring and even more severe sleep disorders such as sleep apnoea. Our professional team of dentists will create a custom made appliance which is designed to ease snoring and sleep apnoea. After a recommended sleep study, where the patient is monitored overnight, any pauses in breathing are documented. After this study, we are able to customise an appliance to suit you. This appliance works to actively keep the airway passage open, causing less disruption to your sleep.
