Snoring does you do or does you don’t?

By published 26 November, 2013 No Comments

Snoring is the coarse sound a person can make whilst asleep. The noise is caused by vibration of the soft palate and other soft tissues of the upper airway during the passage of air in, and out.

The turbulence is caused due to restriction of the lax tissues in the throat. Whilst awake these tissues exhibit muscle tone and the airway is more patent, thus we do not snore whilst awake.
Snoring can originate from the nose, oropharynx or base of the tongue. Research has shown that the backward ‘lol’ (no not that text speak!) of the tongue is more important in snoring than was first thought.

Snorers may be susceptible to the potentially life threatening OBSTRUCTIVE SLEEP APNOEA ( stopping breathing whilst asleep).

It is important that you are screened by your Dentist or Health Care professional to eliminate this possible complication; as provision of an anti snoring device alone, may just serve to mask this serious condition.

As Dentists we are well placed to both screen and provide mandibular advancement devices, custom made to gently pull the lower jaw and attached tissues (tongue etc) forward thus helping to prevent or stop the snoring sounds.

Dentally prescribed devices such as Sleepwell (S4S) and Somnowell are proven devices to alleviate snoring. There is no ‘cure’ but reduction in sounds can be dramatic.

Most snorers tend to take the ‘hit and miss’ route to finding a solution, with the inevitable disappointing result. Here at Banks dental in Marske we are committed to helping you find a solution to your problem snore and have a range of MA appliances at prices from £440. Contact the surgery for a free consultation.
