Get a Better Night's Sleep

Couple sleeping. Sleep apnoea treatment in Brisbane CBDIf you feel fatigued during the day, have experienced memory loss, have teeth that are flat and worn or have a large neck circumference, there may be a reason that you’re not well-rested when you wake up in the morning. Your spouse may have told you that you snore loudly or seem to periodically stop breathing during the night.

These can all be signs of sleep apnoea, which is caused by the soft tissues in the back of the throat that obstruct your breathing. As it’s considered to be a serious sleep disorder, sleep apnoea—if not treated—could result in an array of significant health conditions.

These include:

  • Depression
  • Diabetes
  • Heart failure
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke

Breathe Easily and Feel Rested

Our team works with local sleep clinics that can evaluate whether your sleeping issues are related to such an obstruction. If they are, we offer splints that are more compact and less invasive than the CPAP machines that many aren’t able to use. These appliances fit comfortably over your teeth while positioning the lower jaw forward, allowing air to get into your upper airway.

In many cases, we’ve been happy to see results for our patients after a single night of wearing the splint! When your oxygen flows freely, you don’t have to fight for air while drifting in and out of sleep, finally allowing your mind and body to rest easily.

If you’re ready to put sleep apnoea to rest, contact our practice today to schedule an appointment!
