The effects of snoring can be physical as well as emotional and often both. Snoring can severely impact on normal sleeping patterns, causing exhaustion and a lowered immune system. Over an extended period of time, serious snorers may also develop more severe conditions such as sleep apnoea. Emotionally, snoring can severely impact on the relationships that snorers have with those around them. Many partners of snorers become resentful due to the fact that they are deprived of sleep on an ongoing basis.
The British Orthodontic Society states that one of the few effective interventions is a lower jaw advancement appliance provided by a qualified professional. This is something we are experienced in providing and have helped many patients and their partners. After a few days you will barely know you are wearing it, but your partner will be delighted – two thirds of patients completely stop snoring and most notice an improvement.
