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!
Enjoyed the visit. Pleasant, polite and pain free. Good environment.
Excellent, Mr. Lee was fantastic as usual.
Always enjoy our visits to the dentist here - great staff throughout.
