Continuous Open Airway Therapy
Sleep is one of the most important factors in your health and wellbeing. It keeps your immune system strong, lowers stress and keeps you motivated. A poor quality of sleep due to snoring can affect your relationships as well as your own happiness, but at Lion Dental Centre we are proud to offer our patients leading treatments to combat this issue. We are now offering a service with snoring specialists Somnomed, to improve quality of sleep for patients that suffer from issues such as Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.
Apnoea is a condition in which the soft tissue and muscles deflate and collapse in your throat; creating blockages that make it increasingly difficult to breathe, and stop all air flow for more than ten seconds at a time. This develops to Obstructive Sleep Apnoea, this time frame without oxygen results in the brain failing to send signals to breathe during sleep.
There are a range of symptoms that could signify OSA, from heavy and chaotic breathing, to deep snoring. If you notice that it is becoming an issue visit your GP they can advise the best course of action. If this involves a somnomed device feel free to book in for our free consultation.
Lion Dental Centre recognise that an inability to breathe functionally is an uncomfortable and worrying issue for many, and are pleased to offer a solution after discussing the matter with your GP. If after an assessment, we conclude that the Somnomed is a procedure that would suit your needs, it will benefit you considerably as the treatment guarantees significant relief with exceptional comfort.
Somnomed mouth guards are crafted to suit you, with acrylic and has a patented flexible lining, that is not susceptible to bad odour and will not discolour over time. Quiet, and discreet Somnomed allows patients normal opening and closing of the mouth, allowing patients to live their daily life to the fullest. OSA patients can relax with the knowledge that their sleep will improve dramatically.
If you have any queries, or think the Somnomed treatment would enhance your life, we can happily book in for a consultation at Lion Dental Centre.
