Do you or your partner suffer from breathing difficulties during sleep such as snoring or obstructive sleep apnoea? You might be pleased to know that dentistry may have a solution for you. A series of oral devices or mouthpieces are now available and can be fitted by a dentist that will address your snoring problems by preventing the lower jaw from dropping back during sleep thereby preventing the closure of your airways, which will stop you from snoring.
Such a custom-made mouth piece is made from impressions taken of your teeth to ensure they fit you comfortably. Made from a hard wearing plastic, the mouthpiece is worn at night and works by holding the bottom jaw in a slightly forward position. This position opens up your airway significantly allowing you to breathe better and as a result sleep better too.
Speak to your dentist today about how your snoring problem can be addressed.
I have been coming to Benhill Dental Practice for a number of years' now and purely because of the treatment and service provided by Dr Alexandra Fivey and support staff.
My 9 year old daughter recently had to have two fillings and an extraction, Dr Alexandra handled her so well and we were so pleased with the outcome! I couldn't recommend her enough as a dentist! Thank you!
Alex and Rachel always provide a professional and thorough service for myself, my husband and daughter. We have been going to see them for the last few years and have always had a positive and personal experience. They are very patient and gentle with my 10 year old daughter, who before going, was not keen on seeing the dentist or hygienist! I would highly recommend!
Great, friendly dentists! Dr Alexandra and her colleagues go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and offer the best advice.
I would like to thank Dr Alexandra for making our first visit in the practice an amazing experience. My son who is 6 years old needed his tooth taken out after being inflamed for some time. Dr Alexandra is a BRILLIANT dentist, clearly with lots of experience and professionalism and someone who loves her job…We are very happy that we found Dr Alexandra! Thank you so much!!!
