Snoring / Sleep Apnoea

Sleep apnoea is a sleep disorder characterized by abnormal pauses in breathing or instances of abnormally low breathing, during sleep. Each pause, called apnoea, can last from a few seconds to minutes and may occur several times an hour. Various factors contribute to sleep apnoea, such as being overweight, age, alcohol intake and medications. Adverse effects of sleep apnoea include: tiredness and daytime drowsiness, irritability and lack of focus, all of which can bring stress to your life and relationships.

Typical treatments for snoring include medication, surgery or gimmicks such as nose strips or sleeping back packs. Less invasive and more comfortable treatment can be found with the use of a dental appliance.
