Anti Snoring, Mouthguards and Bite Raising Dental Devices

Anti Snoring Mouthpiece Devices

Anti snoring mouthpiece devices – also known as dental appliances, or mandibular advancement splints – have been effective for many snorers, including those suffering from mild or moderate obstructive Sleep Apnoea.They are small plastic devices worn in the mouth during sleep to prevent the soft throat tissues from collapsing and obstructing the airway. Anti snoring devices do this by bringing your lower jaw forward and/or by lifting your soft palate. Some devices also stop the tongue from falling back over your windpipe.Typically we will take a mould of your mouth and then manufacture your custom mouthpiece, which is then professionally fitted to your individual requirements.

Bite raising appliances

A poor bite is a significant cause of headaches. For most of us, our bite is something we take for granted. We just close our teeth together, and that’s it. In fact, we usually only notice our bite after dental work, where either a more prominent tooth has been removed or we have had a filling.These procedures can sometimes change our bite by tiny amounts, which are surprisingly noticeable!

Because we’re not normally aware of our bite, abnormalities here can have very subtle effects. A small change in the mouth can affect your bite and lead to increased stress on the joint between the jaw and the skull, which in turn can cause discomfort and pain.
