Sleep apnoea

Sleep better with orthodontic treatment

Losing sleep doesn’t just affect your mood and overall alertness, it can even damage your health. If you (or your partner) suffer from snoring or sleep apnoea, it may surprise you that orthodontic treatment can make a huge difference to how you sleep!

Sleep apnoea explained

Sleep apnoea (apnea), also known as Obstructive Sleep Apnoea, is caused by the muscles at the back of the throat relaxing too much and partially closing off the airway. As the sleeper's airway closes, they can begin to snort or snore as they gasp for breath. They may not fully wake up, but this process can disrupt their sleeping patterns (and the sleeping patterns of those around them).

Restore your sleep with orthodontics

There are many lifestyle changes that can help those that suffer from sleep apnoea such as exercise, weight loss and limiting alcohol intake. In more serious cases, however, sleep apnoea can be treated with the help of orthodontics. Our very own consultant Specialist Orthodontist, Miss Joyti Vasudev, is a member of the Orthodontics with the Royal College of Surgeons and has extensive experience treating patients with mild to moderate sleep apnoea through the use of sleep splints.
