Snoring. Is snoring preventing you or your partner from getting a full night’s rest?

Snoring is something that cannot be stopped at will, neither is it something that can be ‘cured’. It can however, be successfully controlled.

Snoring is caused by the vibration of soft tissues in the throat and behind the tongue. Studies indicate that at least 30% of adults snore.

Snoring can be a major factor in sleep disturbance and the resulting stress, leading to lack of energy, poor concentration, mood swings, and irritability. In the long term, snoring can also lead to high blood pressure and heart problems.

It is really important to know if you are a plain “snorer” or if you have the much more serious condition called “Obstructive Sleep Apnoea”. The ultimate diagnosis of this must be made by a respiratory physician, but we can send you a FREE online questionnaire that will help you to determine if you have OSA.

Mandibular Advancement Devices (MAD) hold the lower jaw and tongue forward making more space to breathe and prevent snoring. If you are a “snorer’ a MAD may be effective for you.

Our MAD devices are custom made for you using the world leading brands which include the Narval CC , Orthoapnoea and Somnodent . These are PROFESSIONAL custom made devices that are up to 90% effective with a little adjustment from us. We are FULLY trained and licensed to use these products where appropriate

Internet bought devises are bulky, poor quality and have no easy way of making the fine adjustments. Nearly all of our clients have been unsuccessful with Internet devices

Jason is a full member and has undergone full and extensive training on the diagnosis, construction and fitting of these appliances with the British Society of Dental Sleep Medicine,
