If you have answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, the team at Ascent Dental Care Loughborough can help with Anti-Snoring Therapy
Snoring is a very real problem and we find that many of our patients are affected by snoring. However, we find it is not often spoken about due as it can cause embarrassment. However, lack of sleep combined with the problems it may cause to personal relationships often prompt patients in despair to finally seek help.
At Ascent Dental Care Loughborough, we see and treat many patients with severe snoring issues, we understand the seriousness of this condition and the impact it can have on your whole life.
Why am I Snoring?
Snoring happens while you sleep as the muscles that are located in the upper airway of your body relax, which in turn causes an obstruction and bottle neck of the airway passage. These obstructions will cause the sort tissue around the airway passage to vibrate, which causes snoring and the associated noise.
It is well-known professionally that every person who suffers from Obstructive Sleep Apnoea is a snorer. If you are a regular snorer and your snoring is loud, please read our page on sleep apnoea. If you frequently feel tired during the day it is possible you suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).
However, people can snore for many reasons some of which are completely in your control, meaning you can significantly reduce the chance of snoring yourself, or even completely eliminate it.
The team at Ascent Dental Care Loughborough will help you to assess and address your lifestyle. There are many small changes that you can make that will increase the success rate of active treatment – a healthy diet and weight is a key area that we will assess.
Why you are snoring:
- You may be overweight
- You may drink excessive alcohol or drink before sleeping
- Taking sleeping pills
- Lack of exercise
- If you are a smoker
- Having a blocked nose
Active treatment and snoring therapy at Loughborough Dental
At Ascent Dental Care Loughborough, we use Mandibular Advancement Devices, which are non-invasive but very effective in the prevention of snoring. The devices push the tongue and lower jaw forward, preventing the soft palate from vibrating and producing the snoring sound.
This treatment is cost effective, simple to use and often has life changing results for most patients
The Life Changing ‘Somnowell’ Anti-Snoring Device
Somnowell is a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD) that has been created and developed to help people with snoring. The Somnowell device was recently featured on BBC 1 Goodnight Britain, and is now available at Ascent Dental Care Loughborough to offer our patients a truly effective and comfortable solution to snoring.
Somnowell works by holding your lower jaw and tongue in a forward motion while you sleep. This will stop the tongue from dropping back and blocking the airway passage, and stop the soft tissue from collapsing and causing the vibrations in the airway passage that lead to snoring.
Somnowell is made from a strong cobalt chrome alloy material that is comfortable to wear while you are sleeping, but also has the strength to last. The device is strong enough to survive general wear and tear and does have a good resistance against bacteria that can have adverse effects on acrylic and plastic devices.
We continue to provide wonderful results for patients using the Somnowell device at Ascent Dental Care Loughborough
