How to Stop Snoring

If snoring is keeping you awake at night, we can help. Our anti-snoring treatments can help to improve breathing while you sleep, reducing noise and ensuring everyone enjoys a good night’s sleep.

What causes snoring and how can I stop?

The noise of snoring is caused by the soft tissue at the back of the mouth and in the throat vibrating. The most common risk factors for snoring include:
  • being overweight
  • having a large neck circumference
  • smoking
  • sleeping on your back
  • taking certain forms of medication, including sleeping pills
  • drinking alcohol.
Sometimes, people also find that they snore when they have an illness that affects their breathing, such as a cough or cold. If you snore occasionally, there’s probably nothing to worry about and you won’t need to seek advice. But if snoring is a persistent problem, it’s a good idea to see your GP or come and see us. Disturbed nights of sleep can soon make you feel drowsy and lethargic during the day and in the long-term, you may be at risk of stress, anxiety, depression and increased susceptibility to illnesses and infections. There are some very simple steps you can take to stop snoring, including:
  • changing your sleeping position (sleeping on your side is preferable to sleeping on your back)
  • avoiding alcohol during the evenings
  • exercising on a regular basis
  • avoiding sleeping pills
Giving up smoking is also hugely beneficial for snorers. However, we recognise that this is a difficult process and are here to help and support you. We are also able to provide custom-designed bite guards made by Somnowell. Somnowell products are tried and tested and have been developed based on years of research. Mandibular advancement devices have been proven to be very effective for people who snore on a regular basis. These devices are designed to improve breathing and increase air flow by holding the lower jaw in a forward position while you sleep. If you need help for snoring, call now and arrange a consultation!

If you snore or regularly suffer with sleepless nights because you live with a snorer, call us today to see how we can help.

Somnowell anti-snoring treatment

Even one sleepless night can make you feel tired, irritable and lethargic and constant sleep deprivation can really take its toll on your health and wellbeing. Snoring is a common problem, but there is a solution. Often, in cases of infrequent or mild snoring, making simple changes to your lifestyle and sleeping habits, such as sleeping on your side rather than your back and avoiding alcohol during the evening can be beneficial. However, in more severe cases, more dramatic changes may be recommended, such as losing weight and giving up smoking. We also offer Somnowell custom-fit mandibular advancement devices, which are designed to increase air flow during the night by moving the lower jaw forward to ensure the airway stays open while you sleep. The device is tried and tested, comfortable and designed to last a lifetime. The appliance has been developed with comfort in mind and uses the latest ergonomic design concepts to prevent discomfort and ensure you are able to sleep peacefully. If snoring is getting you down, let us help! Call us today and make an appointment for a consultation.  

Stop Snoring for Good with Our Sensational Treatments

If snoring is keeping your household awake at night or causing arguments with your partner, now is the time to act. At Clifton Dental Studio, we understand the importance of good quality sleep and we have effective treatments available to prevent snoring and restore peace at home.

About snoring

Snoring is the name given to noises made when you sleep, which occur as a result of the soft tissue at the back of the throat vibrating. These noises include snorting, grunting and breathing heavily. Most people snore from time to time, usually when they have been drinking alcohol, when they sleep on their back or when they are ill with a cough or cold; however, sometimes, snoring can be persistent and if this is the case, there may be an underlying cause. The most common risk factors for snoring include:
  • being overweight
  • smoking
  • lying on your back
  • drinking alcohol (especially before you go to bed)
  • allergies

What can be done about snoring?

In many cases, making basic changes to your sleep routine and the position you sleep in can have very positive effects; this may involve sleeping on your side and avoiding alcohol in the evenings. In other cases, making slightly more drastic lifestyle changes may be advisable; this may include cutting down on drinking, giving up smoking and losing weight by following a healthy eating plan and doing more exercise. We can also help snorers by providing a custom-made appliance called the Somnowell mandibular advancement device; this device helps to prevent snoring by opening up the airway while you sleep and increasing air flow. The Somnowell device works by moving the lower jaw forward slightly and maintaining this position when you are asleep. The appliance is easy to use and it is fitted to you, so you should find it very comfortable. We recommend Somnowell because it is tried and tested and the results are very impressive; if you would like to find out more, simply give us a call.

We Can Turn Your Snores into Stress-Free Sleep

Snoring can take its toll on even the most energetic and optimistic people, especially if it becomes a nightly problem. Whether you live with a snorer or you are dealing with grumbling from others in your household, we can help.

Why do I snore?

The most common reasons people snore include:
  • allergies and illnesses (such as colds, which cause congestion)
  • sleeping on your back
  • drinking alcohol
  • smoking
  • being overweight
Taking sedatives can also cause you to snore. Many people snore occasionally, usually when they change their sleeping position or they are struggling to breathe due to a short-term illness such as a cough or cold. However, some people snore on a regular basis and this can be a sign that your body is struggling to get enough oxygen when you sleep.

What can be done to stop snoring?

Snoring varies in severity and in mild cases, making lifestyle changes can have a very positive impact. Examples of these changes including giving up drinking alcohol in the evenings, cutting down or quitting smoking, losing weight, changing your sleeping position and doing more exercise. Not taking sedatives can also help you to stop snoring. If you struggle to get to sleep, there may be other therapies, which could help. In more severe cases, we recommend Somnowell treatment. This involves placing a mandibular advancement appliance in the mouth before you go to sleep. This appliance is designed to move the jaw forward and hold it in this position and it helps to aid snorers by increasing air flow. We have been using Somnowell treatment for several years and we find it to be extremely effective.

Stop Snoring for Good with Clifton's Anti-Snoring Treatment

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. If snoring is getting to you or your partner is begging you to do something to stop your snoring, call now and make an appointment.  

We Can Put Your Snoring to Bed, Permanently!

If snoring and sleepless nights are getting you down, we are here to help. Whether you are a snorer or you share a bed with somebody who snores on a regular basis, there are ways to restore the peace and ensure you get the rest you need.

What causes snoring?

The noise you hear when somebody snores is caused by the vibration of the soft tissue at the back of the mouth. Most people snore from time to time, but if you snore on a regular basis, this may be a sign that you are struggling to get enough oxygen while you sleep. The most common risk factors for snoring include being overweight, sleeping on your back and allergies. Structural problems, which affect the nasal passages, colds and coughs can also increase the risk of snoring. In many cases, changing your sleeping position, treating allergies and losing weight can help to reduce snoring. However, if snoring continues, there may be other options available.

How we can help

We provide Somnowell anti-snoring treatments to help patients enjoy restful nights of sleep. Somnowell has produced a range of treatments for snoring, TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders and sleep apnoea and we have found these treatments to be highly effective. We recommend the Somnowell anti-snoring device to combat snoring. This device adjusts the position of the lower jaw in order to increase air flow and ensure that you get enough oxygen during sleep. The device shifts the lower jaw forward slightly and facilitates improved breathing during the night. The device is built to last and it is designed for comfort.

Sleep Peacefully All Year Round with Bristol Anti-Snoring Treatment

Snoring is often a problem people joke about, but it can actually have a very negative impact on a person’s life. Snoring increases the risk of interrupted sleep patterns, which can affect mood, energy levels and concentration. It often has a knock-on effect on others in the household. If you’re worried about snoring, or snoring is causing strain on your relationships or creating problems at work, we have the solutions to help you sleep peacefully all year round.

Why do we snore?

Snoring is very common and most people snore every now and then. Often, snoring is linked to sleeping position, allergies and illnesses (such as coughs and colds). Sometimes, however, it can indicate that the body is struggling to get sufficient oxygen. If you snore on a regular basis, it is advisable to seek help to enable you and the people around you to enjoy peaceful nights of sleep. The most common risk factors for snoring include: drinking alcohol, smoking, obesity, allergies and lying on your back can also increase the risk of snoring.

What can be done for snoring?

Often, adapting sleeping position can help with snoring, but if snoring persists or you snore on a regular basis no matter which position you sleep in, other steps may be recommended. In many cases, lifestyle changes can make a significant difference and it’s advisable to try and adapt a healthier lifestyle if you are overweight, you smoke or you drink more than recommended daily intake of alcohol. Losing weight, quitting smoking, reducing alcohol intake and doing more exercise can all help with snoring. We are also able to provide custom-designed anti-snoring appliances such as Somnowell, that help to increase air flow while you sleep. Somnowell appliances work by moving the jaw forward slightly, which helps to keep the airway open. Treatment can also be beneficial for people who suffer with sleep apnoea and tooth grinding.
