Disrupted sleep can soon cause you to feel tired, lethargic and irritable. If you regularly wake yourself up with snoring or you’re struggling to sleep because you share a bed with a snorer, now is the time to do something about it and start your journey to undisturbed, peaceful nights.
Why do I snore?
Snoring is a very common problem and in most cases it is occasional. Potential causes include sleeping on your back, allergies and illnesses such as colds and coughs. If you snore on a regular basis it may be down to underlying issues that prevent the body from getting enough oxygen while you sleep. The most common risk factors include being overweight, smoking, drinking alcohol and structural problems that affect the passage of air through the nostrils.
How can I stop snoring?
Sometimes, stopping snoring is as simple as giving up alcohol in the evening, taking allergy medication or swapping your sleeping position so that you lie on your side rather than your back. However, in other cases, more drastic changes such as giving up smoking and losing weight may be required.
In cases where lifestyle changes are not sufficient, we can help to prevent snoring by providing Somnowell treatment. Somnowell offers a range of treatments, including a mandibular advancement appliance that holds the jaw in the optimum position to encourage air flow. Unlike similar devices, the Somnowell advancement mandibular appliance also helps to reduce the risk of oral health problems including decay and gum disease, as it is resistant to fungi and bacteria. Somnowell also provides treatments for TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorder and sleep apnoea.
