Anti-Snoring and Sleep Apnoea
Oral appliances have been proven very successful in the reduction of snoring and the treatment and prevention of sleep apnoea.
It is important to have such issues professionally reviewed by your GP and Sleep Physician, since the health impacts and morbidity associated to undiagnosed sleep apnoea is significant.
Following a sleep study, a Sleep Physician can make an accurate diagnosis of your situation and provide recommendations on your treatment options. At Surfside Dental we can offer a custom made Somnomed Mandibular Advancement Splint (MAS).
This is a proven, highly comfortable oral appliance which is custom made for each individual. To have such an appliance correctly made with the aim of receiving an appliance which will serve for many years, your mouth and teeth need to be in a reasonably healthy condition. Accurate impressions and measurements of your bite and teeth are required and regular reviews by your dentist are important.
