at Red Hill Dental

Man snoring and woman with pillow over earsAt Red Hill Dental, we care about your whole-body health, which is why we’re proud to offer relief from sleep apnoea and snoring. Sleep Disorder Breathing is a condition where apnoea (stopping of breathing for 10 seconds or more) and hypopnea (abnormally slow or shallow breathing) are present during sleep.

If you answer ‘Yes’ to any of these questions, you could be suffering from Sleep Disorder Breathing:

  • Do you snore loudly?
  • Do you choke, gasp, or hold your breath during sleep?
  • Do you wake up tired in the morning?
  • Do you experience insomnia?
  • Do you suffer headaches upon awakening?

Many Australians deal with this common disorder, which is linked to a number of other conditions like high blood pressure, heart failure stroke, diabetes, and accidents.

Sleep Apnoea Oral Appliance

In apnoea, the tongue and the muscles in the throat relax, blocking the airway and temporarily interrupting breathing. This is where a sleep apnoea device comes in. Worn over your teeth while sleeping, the appliance holds the lower jaw forward, preventing the tongue and the soft tissue of the throat from blocking the airway. This device is safe, well tolerated, and has been proven to be effective for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea.

The appliance is small and convenient, and easy to carry with you when you travel. Developed with advanced dental technology, this treatment does not involve surgery or any medication.
