Sleepwell – The most Clinically Effective Mandibular Advancement Splint
The Sleepwell works by holding the bottom jaw in a slightly forward position. This action is similar to doing a chin lift in ‘First Aid’, by holding the bottom jaw forward by just a few millimetres allows the tongue to move forward and opens the airway significantly. By allowing the passage of air more freely reduces snoring.
Alistair Gooseman, Grimsby
“I do snore badly and also have high blood pressure and hypertension, but wearing Sleepwell has meant that I sleep better at night and have more energy and focus both personally and with my own business”.
“I have been married to my husband for 42 years now and have threatened divorce in the past due to his snoring! We have tried everything, including an operation to reduce his snoring but nothing has worked – until he was fitted with Sleepwell. We are amazed by the difference it has made to our lives now that we both don’t get woken up by every night with his snoring”.
“Sleepwell has changed my life. I feel that I have been born again as I am finally getting a great night’s sleep”..
“I have had a snoring problem for a very long time and have tried everything. I have actually tried CPAP and it never worked for me, but since I have used the Sleepwell splint it has completely changed my life. It is amazing how a small customised mouthpiece like that can have so much effect on me. Having had such profound problems I am not sure that I can actually do without the splint, I just like it. The snoring was so bad I actually woke everybody up at home. Now they can barely hear me when I sleep”.
“I have suffered from breathing difficulties for many years and more recently I have begun to snore rather loudly. In 1999 I was referred to an ENT consultant and it was discovered that I had a polyps in my nose and a displaced septum. I attended a sleep clinic and was diagnosed as suffering from sleep apnoea. In November 2001 surgery was performed to rectify the problems with my septum and to remove the polyps. This was a partial solution since I can now breathe comfortably and freely. However, a further stay in the sleep clinic indicated that I still suffered from sleep apnoea and still snored. At this point it was suggested that a possible solution was to wear a splint at night to bring my jaw forwards and open up the air passages. This has worked very well and snoring has been replaced by deep breathing. I thought that it may be difficult to become accustomed to wearing it at night but this has turned out not to be the case. I found quite quickly that I stopped noticing it and the relief on my air passage has greatly improved the quality of my sleep”.
The main snoring cause is due to the partial closure of the airway during sleep. During sleep, muscles in the neck relax and for some people the soft tissue in the upper throat vibrates, which makes the sound we know as snoring. Now you know about snoring do you know about Sleep Apnoea?
Some snorers stop snoring and also stop breathing – a medical condition called Sleep Apnoea. This is caused by the airway closing completely during sleep thereby preventing snorers from breathing. This condition is called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA).
Below is a Flash Animation that shows the anatomy of snoring and how the Sleepwell device can help reduct the causes of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea.
What Are The Causes of Snoring
Snorers are often made to feel guilty, however the causes of snoring are often beyond their control. Certain factors increase the chances of being a snorer:
- Physiology – The shape of the airway in some people makes snoring more likely.
- Being Overweight – Excess body fat increases the chances of snoring.
- Age – As we age weaker throat muscles increase snoring.
- Lifestyle – Some people snore after drinking alcohol or taking sleeping tablets due to the extra relaxation caused in the neck and throat.
Do men snore more than women?
Yes. (55% vs 45% VAR international 2005)
Men carry excess body fat on the upper body resulting in higher levels of snoring. Also, in younger women hormones prevent the collapse of the airway during sleep
