The Problem with Snoring

Snoring isn’t just annoying for your bed partner, snoring can be detrimental to your health. Snoring is the sound produced when the flow of air through the mouth and nose is obstructed during sleep.

Persistent snoring can disrupt your sleep, as well as your partner’s, leading to daytime fatigue, irritability, and impaired cognitive function. It can also be an indicator that you have Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA), which can have serious health implications.

Seeking treatment for snoring is essential for maintaining overall health, enhancing sleep quality, and improving daytime functioning.

Snoring Treatment

There are various treatments available to those who snore. Appropriate treatments include:

Oral Appliance Therapy

Oral appliance therapy is one of the most effective and comfortable options for treating snoring. Oral appliances are worn during sleep and help keep the airways open by supporting the jaw in a slightly forward position.

At Dental Sleep Professionals, our team provides a highly effective oral appliance therapy treatment called the mandibular advancement splint. This treatment works like a mouth guard for snoring, minimising snoring by keeping your airway open.

CPAP Therapy

CPAP therapy stands for Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Therapy. It is a common treatment for snoring/obstructive sleep apnoea. During CPAP therapy, a machine delivers a constant flow of air through a mask worn over the nose or nose and mouth while sleeping. This air pressure helps keep the airway open, preventing pauses in breathing and improving sleep quality. CPAP therapy is often effective in reducing snoring and alleviating symptoms of sleep apnoea. Whilst considered the gold standard of therapy for severe sleep apnoea, many patients cannot tolerate it.

At Dental Sleep Professionals we specialise in treating patients who are not able to tolerate CPAP therapy. We treat many such patients in our clinic with the mandibular advancement splint.

Sleep Position

Simply changing your sleep position can improve your snoring symptoms. This is known as positional snoring, where sleeping on your back contributes to symptoms of sleep apnoea. Sleeping on your side every night can help improve your snoring.

Lifestyle Changes

Losing weight is commonly recommended by sleep physicians to those who are overweight and suffering from snoring. Weight loss can be useful for improving or eliminating snoring, however, this option is usually recommended in conjunction with other treatment options. 


Surgery is usually the last resort for those suffering from snoring or sleep apnoea. The post-operation recovery may cause severe pain as the surgery may involve significant surgery in the jaw and soft tissues in the throat.

It’s important to consult with a healthcare provider to determine the most suitable treatment option based on individual needs and preferences. Prioritising snoring treatment can greatly improve sleep quality and overall health.
