Tendler Dental Clinic prides itself on providing a dentist capable of offering the broadest range of customised dental solutions. Since snoring and sleep apnoea can be can be treated by realignment of the jaw, this area has been a focus for our clinic.
Snoring is a breathing disorder characterised by the narrowing of the airways during sleep. If you suffer from snoring, or perhaps you have a partner that snores, it can be a very traumatic experience. Loss of sleep and unsettled sleeping patterns can result in poor working performance, unnecessary fatigue and can put a strain on your relationship with a loved one.
In some cases, snoring can be indicative of a more serious condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). Sleep apnoea is when the airway becomes intermittently obstructed for periods of time during sleep and breathing stops completely. In extreme cases, sleep apnoea leads to choking and gasping and those who suffer the disorder are awakened during sleep.
