Snoring can be extremely annoying to both the sufferer and those around them! But it can also indicate an underlying issue like sleep apnoea. Did you know that your Sarum dentist in Salisbury can play a vital role in diagnosing and treating your snoring? Keep reading to find out how!

How Does Snoring Affect Your Sleep

The short-term effects of snoring are well known to all: disturbed sleep, tiredness, aggravation, and frustration. But what are the long-term effects of snoring? They might shock you!

The long-term effects and increased risks of chronic snoring and sleep apnoea include:

  • Stroke
  • Dementia
  • Heart Disease
  • Arrhythmia

This is why it’s essential to seek professional help if you are suffering from a lack of sleep attributed to snoring. There are various treatments that your local Salisbury dentist can offer to help alleviate your symptoms, give you a restful night and improve your general wellbeing!

Dental Treatments for Sleepless Snorers

Oral Appliance Therapies

At Sarum Dental Practice in Wiltshire, we offer our patients oral appliances – or mandibular advancement devices – to help aid their sleep. These custom-fitted appliances reposition the tongue and jaw, preventing airways from collapsing and reducing snoring intensity.

Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD)Treatment

TMD affects the movement of the jaw, results in chronic pain and discomfort, and can also contribute to snoring. Fear not! At Sarum Dental, we can assess and address issues underlying jaw misalignment that might exacerbate your snoring. We offer oral splints, occlusal adjustments, and physical therapy to alleviate TMD-related symptoms.

Support When You Need It

“A fantastic professional outfit that has made a trip to the dentist very pleasurable! Neal is very personable and always open to any questions or queries. The reception staff are very attentive, and the outcomes of my many treatments have been fantastic. Highly recommend.”

Clear usage instructions will always accompany any oral appliances your dentist may prescribe. Proper appliance insertion, removal, cleaning, and maintenance will ensure long-term efficacy in improving sleep quality. We also recommend regular follow-up appointments at our Wiltshire dental practice, so that the dentist can monitor your treatment and address any concerns you may have.
