Stop Snoring and Sleep Apnoea with SomnoMed Technology

Many people suffer from Snoring and Sleep Apnoea which is not only annoying for themselves and their partner but can also be a signifier of a more serious condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.

Snoring occurs when your breathing becomes obstructed (often by the tongue), causing a vibration in the mouth and throat, producing the noise we call snoring. Often, if this blockage obstructs your breathing more severely, your body will react by causing you to momentarily wake up, resume natural breathing and continue sleeping. In many instances this process can occur multiple times in a single night without your realisation. Consequently this results in a restless, disturbed sleep. At Broadway Dental Centre we use SomnoMed technology to combat and alleviate this problem.

SomnoDent

What is SomnoDent?

SomnoDent is an Oral Sleep Apnoea Appliance consisting of two dental plates, which look similar to a sports mouth guard.
SomnoDent is custom made to fit your mouth and should be worn at night whilst you are sleeping.

How does SomnoDent work?

Using a titration key, the SomnoDent can be gradually adjusted to bring your lower jaw forward, opening up your airway.
Treatment is painless and non-invasive. SomnoDent therapy is reversible and can be used in conjunction with other treatment modalities.

Is SomnoDent comfortable?

The SomnoDent allows you to open and close your mouth, which means you can talk or drink with the appliance in position.
Because SomnoDent is custom made to fit your mouth, you will find the appliance to be surprisingly comfortable and discreet. You will find that you're used to wearing the device after about a week.
