Snoring and Sleep Apnoea in Melbourne CBD

Man snoringSleep apnoea is a disorder of obstructed breathing or a lack of breathing while sleeping. During obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), people experience repeated inability to inhale properly. At Collins Dental Image, we’re proud to work with patients of every stage of life to help them improve their night time breathing and sleep quality, which contributes to a healthier, happier life.

What is Sleep Apnoea

Noisy breathing during sleep, while seemingly harmless, is a symptom of this sleep disorder, and can occur when the muscles in the back of the throat become too relaxed and block the airway. Eventually this can lead to chronic sleep apnoea, which has more serious health implications, as it reduces oxygen levels in the bloodstream over a prolonged period of time.

If left untreated, risks include heart disease, high blood pressure, headaches, fatigue, trouble concentrating, memory problems, and even psychological problems. Such implications can take a toll on your everyday activities and prevent you from living life to the fullest.

Don’t Put Up with Poor-Quality Sleep

Breathing related sleep issues can lead to multiple nights of poor quality slumber. This disrupts sleeping patterns for both you and anyone who sleeps nearby, leaving everyone drained of mental and physical energy in the mornings, and suffering drowsiness as the day progresses.

Sleep disturbances are common and can reduce the quantity and quality of your sleep, which in turn can cause more serious health problems, such as chronic fatigue and heart complications. Our team is committed to identifying and addressing these conditions to help you get restful sleep and keep you healthy.

Find the Right Solution for You

If you want to eliminate ongoing sleep disturbances, our clinicians will examine your condition and help find a custom solution for you.

In most cases, we recommend Somnomed, a non-invasive dental device that enables you to breathe with complete ease. Somnomed appliances are custom-made and gently position your lower jaw forwards to open your airway. Personally-fitted by an experienced member of our team, this device may help you get the deep sleep you need and allow any other members of your household to sleep without disturbance. Additionally, it helps protect your teeth by preventing teeth grinding at night.

Should you experience more complex and/or severe symptoms, our team will collaborate with medical specialists–and, as always, ensure your case is handled with the utmost care and attention. The result is a decrease in stress and an increase in overall wellbeing for you and your family.
