Snoring may disturb the sleep of the sufferer and their partner.
Deep and uninterrupted sleep is important to overall health and well-being.
Snoring may be an indicator of a condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) and left untreated OSA may cause excessive daytime sleepiness, high blood pressure and an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke.
One example of a solution is a mandibular (lower jaw) advancement splint called The SomnoMed MAS™.
This is a custom made oral appliance that is worn during sleep hours to aid in the treatment of snoring and mild to moderate Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.
Treatment involves one initial appointment to take impressions of the upper and lower jaws followed by a second appointment to fit the appliance.
In some circumstances a consultation with a medical practitioner or sleep specialist is required prior to proceeding with the construction of a snoring device.
