Snoring Solutions

Snoring is a common problem that affects many individuals, causing discomfort for both the snorer and their loved ones. At Oral Square Dental Care, we understand the impact that snoring can have on your quality of sleep because Sleep Health is a contributing factor to our overall wellbeing. That’s why we offer effective snoring solutions to help patients find relief and enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep.

Cause Of Snoring

Snoring occurs when the soft tissues in the upper airway collapse against each other, causing vibrations as air tries to pass through. It can be triggered by various factors, such as a large tongue, long soft palate, excess fat deposits in the throat, large tonsils, incorrect jaw position, nasal passageway obstruction, or sleeping on one’s back, which causes the tongue to fall back.

How To Stop Snoring

At Oral Square Dental Care, our snoring dental experts are trained to diagnose and address how to stop snoring. We will carefully assess your symptoms and determine the most suitable snoring treatment based on the severity of your snoring and dental issues.

Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD)

These custom-made devices are designed to keep the airway open during sleep, preventing the soft tissues from collapsing and reducing snoring. The mouthguard fits over your teeth and pushes your lower jaw forward, opening up your airway and reducing snoring. Our dental team will take accurate impressions of your teeth to ensure a comfortable and precise fit of the appliance.

Tongue Retaining Device (TRD)

A Tongue Retaining Device (TRD) is another type of mouthguard that is worn during sleep. It is designed to hold the tongue in a forward position to help prevent it from blocking the airway, reducing snoring. The device is custom-fitted to a person’s mouth and holds the tongue in place using a small suction bulb.

Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) Machine

A CPAP Machine is a device that is used to treat sleep apnea, a condition where breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. The machine delivers a continuous stream of pressurised air through a mask that you wear over your nose or mouth while you sleep. This air pressure keeps your airway open, preventing snoring and allowing you to breathe normally.

For symptoms that require a specialist, you may be referred to a practitioner outside our dental clinic for treatment.

Orthodontic Surgery

For complex cases, we may recommend orthodontic adjustments to correct the jaw position or surgical interventions to address obstruction in the nasal passages, and tonsils, or remove excess tissue from the throat. Our team will guide you through every step of the process, explaining each treatment option and helping you make informed decisions.

We treat each patient as an individual, so for circumstances that require a specialist, you may also be referred to a practitioner outside our dental clinic for treatment.
