Sleep Apnoea Treatments

Sleep Apnoea Treatments

At Murray Valley Dental Group we understand the importance of a good night’s sleep. We know that sleep disorders such as sleep apnoea and snoring can have a significant impact on a person’s overall health and well-being.

Our dental experts work closely with other local specialists to conduct sleep screening tests that are used to investigate and determine your risk profile. This helps us understand how your sleep apnoea is impacting your health and allows us to provide the necessary treatment.

Treatments for sleep apnoea can vary with each individual, at Murray Valley Dental Group we provide oral appliances such as mandibular advancement splints like Somnomed which can help with sleep apnoea.

What is Somnomed?
Somnomed is a type of mandibular advancement splint which is an oral appliance designed and used as a treatment for sleep disorders such as obstructive sleep apnoea. Somnomed also helps with symptoms related to sleep apnoea like snoring, grinding of teeth (bruxism) and TMD pain. The Somnomed mandibular advancement splint is custom fitted by our dentists after careful assessment of your sleep apnoea condition. The device is designed to move the lower jaw slightly forward to help keep airways open thus preventing obstruction and other sleep apnoea symptoms.

Somnomed is a great alternative to CPAP machines especially for mild to moderate cases of sleep apnoea as it is less bulky and more comfortable to use.
