Sleep Apnoea

What is Sleep Apnoea?

Do you remember the last time you woke up in the morning feeling refreshed after a full night’s sleep? If you consistently feel tired when you get up, you may suffer from sleep apnoea.

To find effective relief, visit the dental professionals at Mitcham Dental Clinic for advice.

Why Is Sleep Apnoea a Dental Issue?

Although sleep apnoea is a sleeping disorder, it also has oral side effects. If you suffer from this condition, you may experience any of the following dental symptoms:

  • Broken, cracked or missing teeth
  • Jaw clenching
  • Jaw pain, which could be a sign of temporomandibular joint disorders
  • Pain when chewing
  • Teeth grinding

Sleep apnoea has many health implications as well and has been linked to heart health and depression. Feeling overly tired during the day is also a big concern and has a negative effect on how you feel.

How do you treat Sleep Apnoea?

Once you’ve had an assessment, a sleep physician will recommend the best appliance for your condition which we custom make specifically for you.

How does the appliance work?

Each appliance is different, but they are worn at night and generally work by holding the jaw forward which leaves the airway clear so you can breathe easily and enjoy a restful sleep.
