Snoring has an immense impact on the health and quality of life for the snorer, their partner and family. The lack of sleep caused by snoring has wide-reaching effects such as:
Some snorers suffer from Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA). This is a potentially harmful condition where the snorer stops breathing and starts again a few seconds later often accompanied by a choke. OSA contributes to many health problems and robs sufferers of restful sleep.
At our Snoring Clinic a full assessment is sympathetically carried out and following this we can decide on your treatment options.
The good news is that the overwhelming majority of people suffering from problematic snoring can be effectively treated using a Somnowell. The appliance is such an effective treatment for snoring because it tackles the problem at its root cause. The Somnowell is designed to gently hold the lower jaw and tongue in the ‘recovery position’ while you sleep, keeping the airway open.
The Somnowell sleeping aid is also a very effective long-term treatment for Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. The Somnowell ensures an open airway is maintained throughout sleep and is perfectly designed to meet the unique requirements of each user. A high level of precision goes into the design of the Somnowell, making it an extremely comfortable and effective treatment for sleep apnoea.Somnowell
