GET A PEACEFUL NIGHTS SLEEP IN EAST LONDON
There are millions of snorers in the UK but the true number affected is almost twice as many – that’s a partner whose sleep is being disturbed every night.
Snoring may be a commonly dismissed condition but it should be discussed with a health professional, to consider your options. Snoring can impact yours and your partner’s life. In the short-term it can lead to stress and excessive tiredness, and the longer snoring is in an issue, the greater the effect on your well being and overall physical and mental health.
Treatments for Snoring
Snoring, even if you are unaware of it, can lead to long-term sleep disturbance. This can make you tired and irritable during the daytime, it can affect your levels of concentration, mood swings and lead to an overall reduction in energy. Bruxism (or teeth grinding) is also a sign that you may be suffering from snoring or even sleep apnoea. When air flow is compromised, your body may respond to this by initiating grinding or clenching. If you snore you are also more likely to suffer from a dry throat and mouth, and headaches.
- We can help you overcome your snoring issues with a simple appliance known as The Sleepwell appliance.
- An assessment with ourselves will help determine the extent of your snoring by having yourself and your partner fill out a form. From here we can decide if you would benefit from an anti-snoring appliance.
- At Hermitage Clinic, we have used the Sleepwell appliance to help many patients with their snoring problems. The Sleepwell addresses a number of important key features including maximum comfort, retention and full patient adjustability. It is produced by specially trained and dedicated technicians in a laboratory.
A more severe cause of snoring is obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), a common condition that completely obstructs the airways and can leave you without breath for more than 10 seconds. Loud and prolonged snoring can be a symptom of sleep apnoea, and those suffering from it may also find themselves with laboured breathing. It may be necessary for you to see your GP and consider more investigations if you suspect that you or a partner may have sleep apnoea.
