Snoring Treatment

What is snoring?

At least 30% of adults snore. Snoring can be a major factor in sleep disturbance and the stress that can result from it. This can lead to the feeling of lack of energy, poor concentration, mood swings, and irritability.

Snoring is known to cause sleep deprivation to snorers and to those around them. Sufferers may also feel daytime drowsiness and a lack of focus and even in some cases decreased libido.

Snoring is caused by the vibration of soft tissues in the throat and behind the tongue, this results in the snoring sound you hear. The cause of the sound is as a result of obstructed air movement during breathing. In some cases the sound of snoring may be soft, but in other cases, it can be more loud and unpleasant. Snoring during sleep may be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).

Open Airway

The Somnowell appliance is designed to gently hold the lower jaw and tongue in the ‘recovery position’ while you sleep, keeping the airway open and stopping the resulting vibrations and disrupted sleep.
