Do you have trouble getting a restful night's sleep? We have the solution of your dreams!
Dental sleep appliances are a comfortable treatment which effectively combats snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnoea..
About Snoring and sleep Apnoea
Snoring and sleep apnoea are on the rise due to an increasingly overweight population. Fatty tissue around the neck can lead to a reduced airway that vibrates causing the snoring noise, or collapses completely causing the person to stop breathing (sleep apnoea). Left untreated sleep apnoea is known to increase the risk of stroke and is believed to reduce life expectancy by up to 10 years. Sleep apnoea also leads to daytime tiredness which decreases productivity and can be dangerous if driving or using heavy machinery.
The Somnowell Appliance
The Somnowell is a small device worn in the mouth during sleep. It gently holds the lower jaw in the 'recovery position' and keeps the airway open.
Somnowell is a UK company specialising in the manufacture of bespoke chrome cobalt oral devices for snoring, sleep apnoea, bruxism (teeth grinding), TMJ (jaw pain) and orthodontic retention. Somnowell is headed by the inventor Dr Simon Ash, a leading Consultant and Specialist Orthodontist with over 30 years clinical experience.
Alison Arnold is a registered practitioner for the Somnowell Mandibular Advancement Device and she is based at our sister practice in Totnes. The device stops snoring and can be used with Sleep Apnoea. Consultations are £75 which is refunded if you go ahead, this is needed in case you need a referral for Apnoea (Sleep Clinic at Torbay) prior to treatment.
