Snoring is a common complaint amongst many patients here at the Practice, particularly by their partners whose sleep is disturbed on a regular basis. Snoring usually occurs during sleep when our bottom jaw and tongue fall back and the soft tissue blocks the airway at the back of the throat. This narrowing of the airway forces our breathing to get faster and vibrates the soft tissue blocking the airway – the sound caused is what we all know as snoring.
The Sleepwell, is an anti-snoring device prevents the lower teeth and jaw from falling back during sleep – giving you a guaranteed deep, restful and peaceful night’s sleep for you and your partner.
The Sleepwell appliance is a bespoke appliance that is individually made to fit to your bite. Simply wear at night before you go to sleep. It takes a few nights to get used to the appliance but our patients and their partners think the appliance is worth every penny.
But don’t just take our word for how well the Sleepwell appliance works, take a look at the e mail we received recently from a very happy couple whose sleep has been transformed, literally overnight!
I have been using the mouth guard for 4 weeks and, after the initial reaction of something rather ‘alien’ being in your mouth, now find it ok.
My wife has noted a real improvement with my Sleep Apnoea and also with snoring, stating that I now snore for 15 minutes once asleep which then abates to allow her a far better night’s sleep than before using the Sleepwell.
I have adjusted the appliance by approx 1/3 and although there is an initial sense of fear of not being able to open your mouth when wearing it, you simply need to extend your lower jaw to allow the 2 halves of the appliance to separate. Once this has been repeated several times, the sense of fear subsides.
I wouldn’t begin to suggest it is the most comfortable thing to wear to bed but, knowing that my wife is finally able to get a full night’s sleep for the first time in approx 25 years, it’s a small sacrifice to make.
