Is snoring wrecking more than just your partner’s sleep?

Snoring is considered by many to be normal and a natural part of ageing, but many studies show that it is a very serious health risk that is affecting your health and also your partner’s health and lifestyle.

Snoring is not healthy at any age and if you snore at all, you need to rule out sleep apnoea.

Studies have shown that around 40% of the Australian adult population suffer from snoring – these are very alarming figures as not only places pressure on the personal relationships, it also leads to serious health complications such us Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).

Snore Guards

At MVDC we can talk to you about the best possible way to treat your snoring. Oral appliance therapy can be used to reduce and eliminate snoring. We provide custom snore guards SomnoMed . They work by opening the airway passage at the back of the throat and prevents your jaw from dropping back during your sleep and obstructing the airway.

Don’t be kicked out of the room! Call us to book a consultation time to discuss Snore Guards

The women at this practice are phenomenal. I have had fear of the dentist my entire life due to a traumatic experience as a four year old. I finally bit the bullet last month and went to see Karen the hygienist and she made me feel so comforted. Then I met Erika the dentist and she was wonderful also. Yesterday I had restorative work done and for the first time in my life I wasn’t nervous about going to the dentist. I was so relaxed the entire time. Erika has such a calming, relaxed and professional presence. She continually asked if I was ok through each process and I honestly can’t thank her and her team enough. They’ve changed my life in the sense where I no longer feel scared. I actually can’t wait to go back and have my routinely hygiene appointment. WHAT?! ????

If you’re looking for a new dentist, I can’t recommend this one enough. It’s been a while since I’ve been to a dentist and as such I wasn’t very confident finding somewhere new. However the team here have been absolutely incredible. Kind and happy to explain the process, including prices and health fund contributions. Excellent dental facilities and a comfortable waiting room. I’ve seen they also have online booking options, which seems very convenient. Thank you to all the team today for making my first appointment in a long time an enjoyable one.

Snore Guard FAQ’s

Snore guards reduce snoring by bringing your lower jaw forward to open your airway to breathe easier at night.

This, not only helps you breathe smoother but also helps with oxygen intake and better sleep.

Not only that it also helps to give your partner a better night’s sleep.

Everyone is different, however, we have noticed with most of our patients that, the adjustment period can take anywhere from 5 to 7 nights, yet there are some people that take longer to adapt. It is perfectly normal for your jaw, teeth & gums to feel sore at first as it is something foreign into your mouth. Very similar to getting braces or wearing a plate/retainer.

The time frame is dependent on the individual so it may take a few more days or a few less. But it gives you a guide

The benefits of a good nights’ sleep and waking up feeling fresh can begin immediately. But it will depend on how long it takes you to get used to the device, which as mentioned can be 5 to 7 days.

But you will notice the difference early on.

You can clean your snore guard simply by using a toothbrush and toothpaste. We also recommend soaking, your anti snoring appliance in a cleaning solution. Cleaning solutions can be purchased in clinic or in pharmacies.

The best place to store your snore guard is in the case that is supplied. This will ensure that it will retain its shape and prevent accidental damage. Make sure to keep it out of reach of your dog or cats as they love to chew through them.
