Brisbane Sleep Dentist – Are you suffering from a bad sleep?
REST FOR YOUR BEST! Sleep plays an essential role to our health.
The best place to go is not only to a GP or a Sleep clinic but also visiting a sleep dentist in Brisbane can be very useful! Why you might ask? One reason for daytime tiredness can be sleep apnoea- airway obstruction where breathing is repeatedly interrupted during sleep due to the relaxation of the tongue and airway muscles. A condition that can go undiagnosed for years.
While sleeping for eight hours a night is often cited as the ideal, it’s really an average figure. What’s normal for you is what leaves you feeling refreshed in the morning. A range of six to nine hours a night is typical.
- Make sleep a priority
- Have a sleep schedule
- Wind down before bed
- Practise clean sleeping
SOMNODENT Appliances are available for snoring and sleep apnoea. See a Somnodent professional.
What is a Somnodent? Somnodent is an Oral Sleep Apnoea Appliance consisting of two removable dental plates, which work together to advance the lower jaw. The Appliance is custom made to fit your mouth and should be worn at night while you sleep.
Is Somnodent the right treatment for me? If you suffer from mild sleep apnoea the Somnodent may benefit you. If your sleep disorder is severe and you cannot tolerate other recommended treatments, then speak to your Sleep Physician about trying the Somnodent.
What is Sleep Apnoea? Sleep apnoea is a sleep disordered breathing condition which occurs during sleep, due to the narrowing or total closure of the airway. When your airway is narrow, you may notice that you snore. The airways become completely blocked and breather stops. The brain the detects the lack of oxygen and promotes a momentary arousal to draw breath. Although you may experience hundreds of sleep apnoea episodes per night, you’re unlikely to remember any of them.
How do you know if you have sleep apnoea?
- Feel unrefreshed upon waking?
- Feel sleepy during the day?
- Cannot concentrate and retain information?
- Feel lethargic during the day?
