What is Sleep Apnoea?

Sleep apnoea is a medical condition that causes people to stop breathing while they sleep. This disorder can contribute to numerous health complications, including hypertension, fatigue, and other physical or mental health ailments linked with poor sleep.

A sleep test is necessary to confirm whether or not you have a clinical sleeping disorder. If apnoea is detected, treatment with a CPAP machine or oral appliance is recommended. These devices can only be administered by a licensed dentist who has experience in manufacturing these devices.

What is an Oral Sleep Apnoea Device?

Mandibular advancement splints guide your lower jaw forward while you sleep, opening up your airway. This device can help with sleep apnoea as well as snoring.

Most people choose an oral sleep device because they are not tolerant of their CPAP machine. However, some people prefer them due to their discreet design and portability.

What is the Adjustment Period Like?

If you’re new to wearing a mandibular advancement splint, there is usually an adjustment period. Your splint will have special jigs on them which can be customised and adjusted to your preferences, allowing you to track your sleep quality at home.
