What Is Sleep Apnoea?

Sleep apnoea is a sleeping disorder that occurs when a person’s breathing is repeatedly interrupted during the course of the night. Sleep apnoea causes individuals to snore excessively and experience tiredness throughout the day. Although often considered to be due to obesity and age, sleep apnoea can be caused by a number of factors, such as narrow airways or a narrow throat.

Patients with sleep apnoea experience an absence of breath for periods of more than 10 seconds, as many as 100 times over the course of the night. This momentary blockage of the airways reduces oxygen supply to the body, compromising the quality of a person’s sleep.

Negative Effects Of Snoring

Although snoring is normal and harmless for most people, excessive snoring caused by obstructed airways can lead to the following health conditions:

 

  • Heart disease
  • Anxiety and mental health issues exacerbated by disturbed sleep
  • Persistent headaches
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Foetal complications during pregnancy

 

Low quality sleep negatively impacts focus, compromises the immune system and affects interpersonal relationships due to added stress. If you believe that the underlying cause of your snoring is sleep apnoea, contact Ipswich Family Dental’s experienced dental team to discuss effective sleep and snore solutions.

Positional Therapy

One of the most effective sleep and snore solutions is to consciously change your sleeping position. Patients sleeping on their back are more likely to experience sleep apnoea and are advised to use support pillows that allow them to sleep on their side without changing position during the night.

Lifestyle Changes

Studies show that even a 10% decrease in weight can significantly improve sleep quality. We also recommend avoiding substances such as alcohol and certain sedatives that can cause excessive snoring.

Oral Appliances

Ipswich Family Dental provides specially designed mouthpieces that support the jaw and tongue, preventing the soft tissue from pressing down on the windpipe.
