INTRAORAL SPLINTS FOR SNORING AND SLEEP APNOIA:…health, safety and quality sleep!!!..

Everyday there are a lot of people who deal with some degree of breathing difficulty on a daily basis during their sleep. A mild version of this is snoring. Snoring is noisy breathing that troubles, not only the sufferer, but also those who sleep together with the sufferer. The situation is more serious if combined with obstructive apnea. OSA – Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome is defined by numerous interruptions in breathing during sleep, which can last to up to 10 seconds, putting the sufferer’s life at risk!

Modern dentistry gives us the possibility of addressing the problem of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea in an easy and simple way, by use of an intraoral splint.

WHAT IS AN INTRAORAL SPLINT?

The intraoral splint is a specially constructed gum shield, otherwise known as a splint, for both the upper and lower jaw, that is joined together by a mechanism. In order to build the splint the dentist takes imprints of the teeth from both the upper and lower jaw. It is tailor-made and the patient is able to easily place the splint in their mouths before to sleep.

WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE SPLINT ?

The intraoral splint for snoring and apnea prevention eases the passage of air from the upper airways to the lungs during sleep, without the need for a CPAP nasal mask. The therapy is completely safe and not only deals with the symptoms but also deals with the initial problem.

SPLINT TYPE IN ACCORDANCE WITH SYMPTOMS:

    • SPLINT THAT AIMS AT ENLARGING THE THROAT PIPE, KEEPING THE LOWER JAW IN THE FORWARD POSITION (the cause is the narrowing of the pharynx)
    • SPLINT AIMED AT THE OBSTRUCTIONS IN THE AIRWAYS TO THE LUNGS, BY KEEPING THE TONGUE IN A FORWARD POSITION (if the cause is prolapse of the tongue or the tongue being disproportionate to the size of the inside of the mouth).

 

The splints are ENTIRELY INTRAORAL.

The choice for the most appropriate type of splint for snoring or sleep apnea is ALWAYS IN COOPERATION WITH THE PULMONOLOGIST FOLLOWING THE PATIENT

ADVANTAGES OF THE SPLINT VERSUS THE CPAP NASAL MASK:

    • The splint is very tolerable for the patient
    • It is discreet
    • It doesn’t press on the face
    • It doesn’t dry out the airways
    • It doesn’t restrict the patient’s movement
    • It doesn’t make any noise
    • It’s easily transportable
    • It’s much more low cost
