A lack of sleep can result in serious health impacts, not to mention its effect on the relationships in your life, along with your emotional stability. At Millennium Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Centre we aim to treat problem snoring and Sleep Apnoea, ensuring that your oral health is not negatively impacting any part of your life.
What causes snoring and what is Sleep Apnoea?
Snoring occurs when the muscles relax at the back of your mouth while you are sleeping. This causes them to fall into the back of your throat, instigating a vibration. While snoring can negatively affect your health in a number of ways, it can also indicate Sleep Apnoea.
Similar to snoring, Sleep Apnoea is related to the blockage of your throat while you are sleeping. Unlike snoring where a partial area of your throat is blocked, Sleep Apnoea indicates an entire blockage of the throat and thus a subsequent loss of air. When your ability to breath is hindered, your brain detects this lack of oxygen and targets it by stimulating your breathing again. This stimulation often causes you to snore, grunt or produce a choking sound. Chronic snoring and Sleep Apnoea can both impact your life in an extremely negative manner.
The effects and symptoms of chronic snoring and Sleep Apnoea
Sleep Apnoea often triggers a number of debilitating symptoms, including:
- Tiredness upon waking and/or the continual presence of excessive sleepiness throughout the day
- Loud snoring, choking or gasping throughout your sleep
- Sore and dry throat or headache’s upon waking
- Poor concentration and memory disorientation/ loss
- Personality changes including increased irritability, anxiety or depression
- Recent weight gain
- Lack of sexual drive
These symptoms can have a devastating impact on your life, and the life of your loved ones. Despite this, the team of dental professionals here at Millennium Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Centre can provide relief from Sleep Apnoea and debilitating snoring.
Curb your snoring and start smiling
To identify your specific condition, the team at Millennium Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Centre will complete an accurate assessment to identify your specific condition. We will also perform a sleep study to assess the severity of your condition. Due to recent technological developments, these sleep studies can be conducted from the comfort and ease of your own home, utilising specialised equipment supplied to us by Sleep Services Australia. After we have obtained the results of this sleep study, along with our initial assessment, the team at Millennium Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Centre can identify your specific condition and discuss an action plan with you.
Tackling snoring, along with mild to moderate OSA (Obstructive Sleep Apnoea)
Snoring and mild to moderate OSA can be actively combated with the use of a MAS (Mandibular Advancement Splint) device. MAS is a technologically advanced piece of equipment which is designed to gently and comfortably hold the lower jaw forward. By encouraging and softly holding the jaw forward, the team at Millennium Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Centre can ensure that your airway is kept open and unobstructed. Millennium Snoring & Sleep Apnoea uses the leading and gold standard MAS device, manufactured by SomnoMed.
