If you or your partner suffers from snoring, obstructive sleep apnea or other breathing difficulties during sleep, you may be surprised to learn that dentistry could help.
There are various treatments on offer that dentists can provide to help your partner lessen the impact snoring is having on your life.
I have received excellent service from my local surgery for many years with any issues or checkup appointments I’ve had. The staff are very professional and friendly and very good at making you feel at ease too.
Here at Bentley Mathieson Dental Clinic, we are pleased to offer patients a range of custom-fitted, bespoke appliances that could stop snoring and other sleep-related breathing problems.
The appliances work by preventing the airways from closing during sleep by gently holding the lower jaw in a natural forward position. They are designed for a comfortable fit using impressions of your teeth and produced in hard-wearing plastic to give years of nightly use.
You could compare the device to some form of sports guard in their design and shape or an orthodontic retainer. However, they’re only to be worn at night to reduce the impact of snoring.
They work by gently positioning your tongue and jaw slightly forwards to encourage the opening of your airways and lessening collapse that causes snoring.

There aren’t any known cures for snoring that would abolish it permanently from your life. However, devices such as the ones we offer here at Mathieson Bentley Dental Clinic can reduce the severity of snoring whenever you need to. There are ways you can lessen your chances of snoring naturally, too. Things like losing weight and eating well can contribute to snoring less.
Snoring isn’t seen as a health risk. If you snore occasionally, then you can expect to be fine as long as you or your partners’ sleeping pattern isn’t too disrupted; that said, if you snore loudly and constantly, your snoring might not just affect your partner’s sleep but yours too. This can result in or be a symptom of obstructive sleep apnea.
You can exercise your tongue to help reduce your snoring. One exercise includes placing the tip of your tongue against the back of your upper front teeth and moving along the roof of your mouth 5-10 times. This can strengthen your tongue and throat muscles making it less likely for you to snore.
Snoring is caused by your throat muscles relaxing so much that they partially block your airways, causing them to vibrate. The more blocked your airways become, the more forceful your breathing becomes as your body tries to push more air through. This, in turn, increases the vibrations.
