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.
At Surfside Dental we offer various types of mandibular advancement splint (MAS) devices depending on the patient’s circumstances. There are several devices on the market today with the more common device like the Somnomed acrylic MAS device and the 3D printed nylon MAS device from 3 D sleep. With some of the newer materials on the market like printed nylon the devices can be made thinner and hence more comfortable and stronger for the patient.
The MAS devices at Surfside Dental are 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.
