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!

No More Snoring In Swindon

Snoring is often laughed off as a troublesome habit, but it can actually have serious implications for your day to day life. If you regularly snore or you live with a snorer, you will probably be aware of the damage a lack of sleep can do. From feeling tired and lethargic the next day to rowing with loved ones and losing concentration at work, snoring can cause real problems. Thankfully, at Clifton Dental Studio, we have solutions available to help you enjoy a restful night.

What can be done for snoring?

Often, making simple changes to your lifestyle and adapting your sleeping position can help to reduce the incidence of snoring; however, if these changes do not work, we can recommend treatment. We have found Somnowell to be very effective.

About Somnowell treatment

Somnowell has created a wide range of anti-snoring therapies and appliances to help combat snoring and improve the quality of sleep. The Somnowell anti-snoring device helps to prevent snoring by holding the lower jaw in a position known as the recovery position; this helps to keep the airway open and ensure that enough oxygen is taken into the body. The device is the leading mandibular advancement appliance on the market and as well as helping you to enjoy a good night’s sleep, it also helps to prevent oral health problems. The Somnowell device, unlike other appliances, is resistant to fungi and bacteria. It is also extremely durable and will last a lifetime. If you snore or you suffer from sleepless nights because your partner snores, you don’t have to suffer in silence. Arrange a consultation today and we will hopefully have you feeling bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in no time.
