When the soft palate and tongue are relaxed during sleep, the natural airway narrows. This may create vibrations of the soft tissue in the throat, this is known as snoring.
How Bad Is Your Snoring?
The Sleep Apnoea Test (The Epworth scale) is rated from 0 to 3 in terms of sleepiness whilst performing certain tasks or scenarios. The test will give you a score that will indicate if you have a sleep apnoea problem.
Snoring may be a sign of sleep apnoea. Sleep apnoea occurs when the airway completely collapses. The airway becomes blocked and the air supply is temporarily interrupted. You have stopped breathing.
If the airway obstruction persists, the brain partially wakes the person enabling them to clear their throat and breathe, you than fall back to sleep. The cycle repeats throughout the night.
Introducing the orthoApnea, a mandibular (jaw) advancement appliance, this device, which you install just before bed and sits snuggly around the upper and lower teeth, has been proven to prevent snoring by keeping the lower jaw forward (its normal position), and the airway open.
As the airway is now more open to allow the air to flow freely, there is no noise, NO SNORING.
This also means you are now getting all the fresh air into your lungs that you need, giving you and your sleep partner both a better night’s sleep.
