Does snoring keep you and your partner awake at night? Is this affecting the quality of your sleep?
You might be surprised that about 33% of the population snores. This is because when we sleep, our muscles relax, and our airways narrow.
Snoring is the vibrating noise made when the back of the tongue vibrates and touches the back of the throat. About 5% of snorers also suffer from sleep apnoea.
These people’s throats close during sleep, and they stop breathing. This lasts from 5 secs to 2 mins and can happen several times a night. The sleeping brain must wake up momentarily to allow air into the lungs, which is very stressful.
The Sleepwell Device
MK Smiles offers Sleepwell as a cost-effective sleep apnoea and snoring treatment.
It is a custom-made device that you wear at night, preventing the lower jaw from dropping back during sleep and thereby preventing the closure of your airways. This provides an effective long-term remedy for snoring.
