Snoring & Sleep Apnoea

Why do we snore?

This is due to the airway collapsing at night. It is also known as ‘sleep disordered breathing’. Most of the time it has little effect on the snorer. However, it may have an effect on those nearby!

More severe sleep disorder breathing can result in daytime sleepiness. It can also have effects on general health leading to higher blood pressure, reflux from the stomach and stroke.

If it is mild to moderate, this can be treated with an oral appliance from the dentist that brings the lower jaw forwards.
