It is likely these treatments will not be enough on their own. Therefore, you may need more advanced treatments. A continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) machine may be recommended. A CPAP machine pushes constant air into your mouth and nose whilst you sleep to avoid the narrowing of your airways.
A custom-fitted mouthguard made by a dentist is another option. This is where we can help. Also known as an oral mandibular device it works by pushing your jaw and tongue forward. This stops your airways from becoming obstructed. It’s important you see a qualified dentist for such treatment. A normal mouthguard will not work in the same way.
