Sleep Apnoea Treatment at Plaza Dental Centre

Helping Hurstville Families Sleep Better

When you sleep, the muscles and soft tissues around the back of your mouth can relax, causing the airway to become blocked off and preventing oxygen from reaching your brain. This type of sleeping disorder is known as “obstructive sleep apnoea” and treating it may be as easy as working with a dentsit like Dr Neville Nolly.

Symptoms of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea

  • Snoring
  • Teeth grinding
  • Sore teeth and jaws
  • Frequent headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Weight gain
  • Elevated blood pressure

Diagnosis and Treatment

Most people start with their physician, pulmonologist or a sleep specialist to determine the underlying cause of their snoring or chronic fatigue. At Plaza Dental Centre, we can also screen you for clinical signs of sleep apnoea during your checkup. If we suspect a sleeping disorder, we can guide you through the process of evaluation with a specialist or a home sleep study.

Depending on the final diagnosis, an oral sleep appliance may be your best treatment option. These custom mouthpieces position the jaw in a way that facilitates an open airway at the back of the mouth for increased oxygen flow during sleep. In fact, some people are able to give up their CPAP equipment entirely.

Why Should You See a Dentist About Your Snoring?

Oral sleep appliances are a comfortable and non-invasive alternative to cumbersome (and noisy) CPAP machines. They’re easy to travel with and require minimal upkeep, while providing fast results.
