Snoring

What is snoring?

Snoring is caused by the vibration of soft tissues in the throat and behind the tongue. Studies indicate that at least 30% of adults snore. Snoring can be a major factor in sleep disturbance and the resulting stress, leading to lack of energy, poor concentration, mood swings, and irritability. In the long term, snoring can also lead to high blood pressure and heart problems.

Somnowell for Snoring

The good news is that the overwhelming majority of people suffering from problematic snoring can be effectively treated using a Somnowell. The appliance is such an effective treatment for snoring because it tackles the problem at its root cause. The Somnowell is designed to gently hold the lower jaw and tongue in the ‘recovery position’ while you sleep, keeping the airway open

Sleep Apnoea

What is Sleep Apnoea?

Sleep Apnoea

With Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) an increase in weight or a reduction in muscle tone can trigger the change from a partially blocked airway (snoring) to a completely blocked airway. It is common for the sufferer to be completely unaware of the disorder, and remain undiagnosed for several years. OSA has been linked to an increased risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease.

Somnowell for Sleep Apnoea

The Somnowell sleeping aid is a very effective long-term treatment for obstructive sleep apnoea. The Somnowell ensures an open airway is maintained throughout sleep, and is perfectly designed to meet the unique requirements of each user. A high level of precision goes into the design of the Somnowell, making it an extremely comfortable and effective treatment for sleep apnoea.

Retention

Retainer facts

  • Teeth move throughout life, in response to many different forces
  • Biting forces are a contributing factor, as are movements in the face and mouth
  • As soon as you stop wearing a retainer your teeth will move

What is a Retainer?

After lengthy and costly orthodontic treatment, or restorative work, teeth retainers are provided to hold the newly adjusted teeth in position. Retainers are worn at night on a regular basis for as long as the wearer wishes to keep the teeth in position.

Somnowell Retainer

Until now there has been no satisfactory long term solution for retaining teeth after braces. The use of chrome cobalt allows the Somnowell retainers to be very thin and yet extremely strong. They do not suffer from wear or tear within the oral environment and are resistant to bacteria, enabling you to retain your beautiful smile for decades.
