If you are asking yourself this question, you probably have a loved one who has complained that they can’t sleep. We have a solution.
Because snoring is an indication of sleep apnoea, a serious medical condition, we recommend seeking a sleep study with a qualified sleep specialist to rule out its presence.
We treat snoring in much the same way as we treat sleep apnoea. Snoring occurs when the anatomy at the back of the throat vibrates while breathing – usually during sleep. While snoring and sleep apnoea are associated with older men, it is important to know that it can occur in either gender and at any age – even in children.
Continuous open airway therapy, or COAT, utilises an oral appliance to gently reposition the lower jaw forward to open the airway and allow for improved oxygen uptake and fewer nighttime waking instances.
If you or your loved one snores, it is essential to seek professional guidance, as sleep apnoea and snoring can lead to many health issues and even early death.

We invite you to get in touch with Dental On Cue if you experience snoring or have received a sleep apnoea diagnosis.
