Sleep apnoea occurs when a person’s airway closes during sleep. Some people have an airway that is prone to collapse during sleep, due to poor jaw development, a large tongue, bad posture, or weight gain. These people are at greater risk of suffering from sleep apnoea.
We can help.
At Capricornia Dental Centre, we take a very personalised approach to constructing and fitting you with a physiologically based appliance to treat sleep apnoea and sleep disorders related to difficulty in breathing.
Many over the counter and cheaper appliances use an arbitrary sizing – a fast ‘fix’ and a cheaper product which is rarely effective for treating the problem. Particularly for people who are intolerant of the traditional CPAP device, our appliance is created uniquely for your physiology, and is therefore comfortable to wear and retain while you’re sleeping.
