Sleep Apnoea Appliances in Torquay

couple in bed sleep apnoeaIt’s no surprise that getting a good night’s sleep is vital when it comes to living a healthy life. After all, it is during shut-eye that our bodies recharge, helping them recover from the activities of the previous day and preparing them for tomorrow. However, achieving restful slumber every night can be challenging, especially for those suffering from conditions like snoring or sleep apnoea.

The Impact of Snoring & Sleep Apnoea

Snoring, while often seen as merely annoying, can have significant effects on your overall health and wellbeing. Frequent snorers may experience weight gain, morning headaches, daytime fatigue, and effects on memory and concentration. These issues arise because their shut-eye quality is compromised. Simple changes in slumber position can sometimes help combat snoring, but for many, a more comprehensive treatment plan may be necessary.

Snoring can also be a symptom of a more serious condition known as sleep apnoea.

This disorder, caused by a partial or complete blockage of the throat, can interrupt sleep multiple times per night. Much like snoring, these disruptions can lead to daytime fatigue and a higher risk of developing other health issues, such as diabetes and heart failure.

Our Approach at Torquay Smiles

At our practice, we are committed to helping patients find the right treatment plan to reduce or relieve the effects of snoring and sleep apnoea. We believe in personalised care and understand that no two patients or cases are the same.

Diagnosis: The First Step to Better Slumber

The first step towards better shut-eye is an accurate diagnosis. Many individuals aren’t aware they have sleep apnoea, often attributing their breathing difficulties at night to snoring or dismissing their daytime tiredness as stress-related. Our team works closely with each patient to understand the root cause of their poor shut-eye patterns.

Personalised Treatment Plans: Tailored to You

We don’t provide “one-size-fits-all” treatment plans. Instead, we take the time to truly understand our patients’ symptoms and circumstances, allowing us to prescribe a course of treatment that delivers swift and lasting results.

Our treatment plans range from suggesting proper sleep hygiene habits and sleeping positions to recommending CPAP machine therapy. However, our most commonly prescribed treatment is a mandibular advancement splint (MAS). This custom-made device, like a mouthguard, gently repositions the lower jaw to allow clear and unobstructed breathing.
