What is Snoring?

Snoring is caused by the muscle in your airway relaxing and closing while you sleep, meaning the air you inhale is forced to travel through a too-small space. Dental snoring devices are designed to hold your jaw in the correct position to keep your airway open, allowing you to experience a good night’s sleep.

FAQs

How does a night guard prevent snoring?

A bespoke dental night guard supports the lower jaw in a forward position, which keeps the airway open. This prevents the tongue falling back onto the soft palate, which in turn prevents snoring.

What is the difference between snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea?

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is a serious sleep disorder, characterised by abnormal pauses in breathing (apnoeas) or abnormally low breathing (hypopnoeas), during sleep. OSA symptoms always include loud snoring. Regular snoring, however, does not always indicate you have sleep apnoea. Your dentist will be able to identify how best to help you.
