Sleep Apnoea

Experience a Restful Night of Sleep with Our Sleep Apnoea Therapy

Do you often feel exhausted even after a full night’s sleep? Are you having difficulty concentrating during the day? If so, you may be struggling with a condition called sleep apnoea.

Sleep apnoea is a sleep disorder where the air passage in the throat becomes obstructed during sleep, intermittently affecting the ability to breathe. It is caused by a blockage in the upper airway, which can interfere with normal breathing patterns. This can cause loud snoring and can lead to excessive daytime sleepiness.

The risks of sleep apnoea are serious – it may increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke. Therefore, it is important to diagnose and treat it promptly.

According to the Sleep Health Foundation, more than 1.5 million Australians suffer from sleep apnoea. Many people are unaware that they have this condition, only finding out through partners and family members who are often affected by the lack of sleep because of the snoring sound. 

If you think you have sleep apnoea and are looking for accurate diagnosis and treatment options, our dentists are here to help. We offer sleep apnoea and snoring therapy to gently treat your condition and help you enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep.

Common Symptoms of Sleep Apnoea

Even though snoring is one of the most common symptoms associated with sleep apnoea, there are other signs that may indicate you have this breathing disorder. 

Some of them include:

  • Loud snoring
  • Disrupted sleep
  • Waking up frequently during the night
  • Gasping or choking during sleep
  • Dry mouth and morning headaches
  • Disrupted sleep
  • Feeling fatigued during the day
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Mood swings & irritability

If you’re experiencing some of these symptoms, there might be a chance you have sleep apnoea. Fortunately, sleep apnoea can be easily treated with our gentle sleep apnoea therapy. 

How We Can help

Until recently, sleep apnoea sufferers have had limited (and inconvenient) treatment options. These have included large and obtrusive nasal masks or bulky Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machines.

But at Bellevue Hill Dental, we use a groundbreaking medical mouthguard, the Oventus Clearway DeviceTM (O2Ventᴿ). This is a 3D lightweight titanium mouthguard that helps oxygen flow through to the back of the throat bypassing nasal, soft palate and tongue obstructions. The O2VentTM T offers an easy and transportable everyday solution. It’s also able to connect with a CPAP machine if a more advanced treatment is required.
