The Facts About Snoring
What causes snoring?
Snoring occurs when your airway is partially obstructed during sleep.
Partially Closed Airway
Obstructive Sleep Apnoea
Regular snoring at night can disturb the quality of your sleep, resulting in daytime fatigue, irritation, and increased health risks.
Snoring can also cause issues with your spouse or partner and can put unwanted stress on your relationship.
What Are The Health Risks Associated with Snoring?
Snoring is a sign of airway obstruction that causes disrupted sleep and can be associated with serious sleep disorders, such as sleep apnoea, which could also be affecting your health and lead to:
- Increased risk of heart attack
- Increased risk of stroke
- Headaches & migraines
- Poor concentration
- Mood changes (e.g. irritability)
- Sleep inertia (experiencing sleepiness & grogginess throughout the day)
It’s important to work with a qualified healthcare provider to address snoring and any potential underlying sleep disorders to prevent these health risks from impacting your life.
What is sleep apnoea?
Sleep apnoea is a serious sleep disorder characterised by interruptions or pauses in breathing during sleep. This happens when the muscles in the back of the throat fail to keep the airway open, leading to shallow breathing or even complete cessation of breathing for brief periods of time.
This can result in decreased oxygen levels in the body, leading to a host of potential health risks such as high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack, and even sudden death. If left untreated, sleep apnoea can lead to serious complications and should be taken seriously as a potential threat to overall health and wellbeing.

What Is The Best Snoring Solution?
Experts Agree: Custom-made Oral Appliances are the Best Treatment for Snoring and Frontline Solution for Sleep Apnoea
Oral appliances are now universally regarded by sleep physicians, ENT’s and other experts in the field as the best available treatment for snoring and one of the only two frontline treatments for sleep apnoea.
Oral appliances are worn during sleep and work by holding the jaw slightly forward so the tongue and tissues at the back of the throat don’t collapse and obstruct the airway during sleep.
This prevents snoring and makes sure that the soft tissue in the back of the throat is no longer collapsing into the passage of airflow and causing obstructive sleep apnoea.
