Anti Snoring

If you (and your partner’s) nights are frequently disturbed by snoring, we can provide custom-made Somnowell devices to help eliminate this noisy problem. Around a third of adults snore and there are a number of factors that can make you more susceptible including obesity, drinking alcohol, smoking and allergies.

Snoring occurs because of the airways in your head and neck narrow when you sleep due to a relaxing of the muscles. This alters the air pressure and leads to vibration of the soft tissues in the throat and behind the tongue.

An anti-snoring device can stop the lower jaw from dropping into a position that narrows the airways.

Treatment steps

  • We take impressions of your teeth and create a tailor-made appliance which is designed to fit comfortably.
  • You wear this anti-snoring device at night to help keep your airways open.

Anti-snoring devices can also help protect teeth from bruxism (teeth grinding) and treat sleep apnoea.

Currently, it is increasingly difficult to get appointments at your existing or register with a new dental practice. We fully appreciate how frustrating this can feel and we are working hard to continue to provide you with a quality service.

We are asking that now more than ever, please be considerate of these difficult times and always allow 24 hours to cancel an appointment. Giving us this notice allows the team time to allocate it to someone in need.

Any failed or late cancelled appointments will now have the 'late cancellation fee; applied in full*, your further appointments may be cancelled, treatments discontinued, or registration withdrawn from the practice.

Please expect to wait a minimum of 8 weeks for an alternative appointment date, this will be made after the late cancellation fee has been paid.

Our team and clinicians are here to help as much as they can, please treat them with respect and kindness, we have a zero-tolerance policy.

Thank you for your cooperation.
