Anti-Snoring Devices

If your partner is a heavy snorer you will know what a misery it can be. Snoring can affect the health of the snorer too. In some cases, it is connected with sleep apnoea, in which the sufferer actually stops breathing for a time. The result can be constant daytime drowsiness and extra strain on the heart.

It is sometimes possible to treat snoring with lifestyle changes, but further treatment from the dentist is also available if these don’t help.


1. Lifestyle changes

Lifestyle changes are usually advised by your GP as a first step to treat snoring. These include:

  • losing weight if you are overweight
  • not drinking alcohol, particularly a few hours before you go to bed
  • giving up smoking
  • taking regular exercise – this can help strengthen neck muscles, which may help prevent the airways in your neck and mouth from narrowing

2. Help from the dentist

An anti-snoring device can be made from impressions of your teeth. The device is a pair of clear plastic moulds which you wear at bedtime. The top and bottom sections are connected at the sides by short plastic links, which have the effect of pulling your lower jaw forward. This in turn holds the airway open, reducing the constriction that causing the snoring.

I have just finished my Invisalign course and am extremely happy with the results. Although there are other practices much closer to me, I chose Elegance Dental because of their glowing reputation, and I’m pleased to say I made the right choice. Erika was always very polite and professional, answering any questions I had along the way, and her assistant Lucy was lovely too.

The receptionists were always friendly and helpful, especially Holly who dealt with my monitoring messages – always responding very quickly and helping to re-arrange appointments when I needed.

Overall, I am extremely satisfied with my experience at Elegance Dental and with the Invisalign course – I have even chosen to get my yearly check-ups there now too.

I cannot speak highly enough of this dental practice! All of the staff are so friendly & polite. As a usually very anxious patient, I was worried that I wouldn't feel comfortable going to a new practice but all of the staff made me feel confident & calm. Sneha has been fantastic from the get go, explaining all the procedures & what was going to be done at each appointment in as much detail as I wanted - no question too big or too small - and Holly & Lucy were also brilliant, they honestly couldn't do enough to calm me down & it feels like they all really care about their patients. I won't go anywhere else for dental work in the future and I'm grateful to have finally found a dentist I can trust! Thank you all xx

Went in for my normal 6 month check up today, Erica thoroughly cleaned and checked as usual and to my joy and surprise she asked if I would like to have my chip filled in on my front tooth. Without hesitating off she went. Thank you so much Erica, I honestly can't thank you enough. My wedding photos will look great now.....well at least my teeth will be!

I just wanted to say a massive thank you to Erika and all the team at Elegance Dental. I was overdue to a visit to the dentist and was very anxious as I am not the easiest of patients. I found all the staff to be very supportive and so friendly throughout my treatment as I had Invisalign. Erika went above and beyond to have my treatment completed before my wedding which made such a difference for me on our special day. So pleased with my new smile 😀. Would thoroughly recommend! X

5/5, 10/10, 100/100!

Erika is THE best. I had my Invisalign through Erika and more recently some further dental work. There isn’t anybody else I would go to or trust the way I trust Erika. She is nothing short of amazing and professional at all times, explaining your options and what’s the best treatment! Her whole team is welcoming and make you feel ‘at home’ right away! Thank you Erika :)
