A splint to advance the lower jaw is an effective treatment for snoring. The splint is worn in the mouth at night to hold the lower jaw slightly forward. This improves breathing during sleep, and reduces the sound of snoring. Studies have shown that the lack of sleep caused by snoring has wide reaching effects such as:

  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Lack of energy,
  • Poor motivation
  • Accidents related to driving while tired
  • Higher stress levels due to fatigue
  • Less effectiveness at work effecting remuneration and career progression
  • Reduced sex drive

In addition snoring has been associated with medical complications and, if left untreated, there is the potential for developing obstructive sleep apnoea. A splint can be made in just 2 appointments.
