There are several other factors that could contribute to, or be the cause of your snoring”

We are proud to associate with SomnoMed, www.somnomed.com.au which is the company that supplies us with successful solutions to snoring and sleep apnoea. Snoring occurs when the soft tissues at the back of your throat become too relaxed and vibrate. The vibrations caused by your breathing results in the snoring sound.

There are several other factors that could contribute to, or be the cause of your snoring:

  • A narrow airway-due to your natural build
  • Weight gain or a large neck-this puts pressure on your airway passage
  • Alcohol-relaxes the soft tissues in your airway
  • Age-muscle tone decreases as you get older
  • Sleep posture-sleeping on your back encourages the muscles at the back of your throat to relax
  • Obstructive Sleep Apnoea-which snoring is a symptom of

Initially we arrange an appointment to discuss your concerns and if a device is something which is right for you we will take impressions of your upper and lower teeth and other records to send off to the SomnoMed laboratory to have an anti-snore device made for you.
