Help with snoring and sleep apnea for a restful night’s sleep

From £XX

What are the sleep-related breathing disorders?

  • Snoring (most common)

  • Snoring with occasional sleep apnoea

  • Obstructive sleep apnoea

  • Central sleep apnoea (most rare)

What is obstructive sleep apnoea?

It is the complete obstruction of the airway by the soft tissues in the nose, mouth and upper neck. The difference between snoring and sleep apnoea is that you completely stop breathing for at least 10 seconds, so obstructive sleep apnoea is the more dangerous sleep-related breathing disorder.

It is classified as mild, moderate or severe depending on how many apnoeic episodes you have per hour; in other words, how many times you stop breathing while you sleep. It affects well over 4% of males and 2% of females in the UK.

What are the symptoms of obstructive sleep apnoea?

During the night: Snoring, snorting, gasping for air, absence of breathing, getting up often in the night to urinate, involuntary limb movements.

During the day: Wake up feeling tired, excessive daytime sleepiness especially while at work or driving, lack of energy, lack of concentration, poor memory, headaches on waking, depression.

Commonly asked questions about snoring and sleep apnoea

How is obstructive sleep apnoea diagnosed?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

OSA (obstructive sleep apnoea) can only be officially diagnosed by specialists at a sleep clinic. 

While your dentist can diagnose dental problems and offer a wide range of dental treatments, they cannot diagnose sleep apnoea. However, they do recognise the signs of obstructive sleep apnoea, because of how much time they spend looking in people’s mouths.

Is sleep apnoea related to teeth grinding?

Arrow Down | Bow Lane Dental Group in London

Currently, there is not a clear understanding of the relationship between obstructive sleep apnoea and teeth grinding, but many studies suggest these problems often occur together. If you grind your teeth in your sleep, then you may need to reinforce them with dental crowns.
