Sleepwell can be a solution for Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnoea. Sleepwell is a custom made mouth piece, it works by preventing the lower jaw from dropping back during sleep which is clinically proven to reduce snoring. 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 this reduces snoring.
What is Sleepwell?
Sleepwell is a cost effective and long term anti-snoring treatment. This device prevents the lower jaw from dropping back during sleep, thereby preventing the closure of your airways while you sleep. Sleepwell is a custom made mouth piece produced within a laboratory to fit your teeth. The guard features a soft inner lining, allowing side to side movement of the lower jaw and the option to adjust it to maximise effectiveness.
Can Sleepwell be used on anyone that snores?
For those with simple snoring troubles, Sleepwell is an ideal solution. During your initial consultation, a practitioner will assess the risk of sleep apnoea where further tests and alternative solutions may be suggested.
Can Sleepwell be worn by patients who wear dentures?
Due to it's customised design and providing there are sufficient teeth in each jaw, Sleepwell is suitable for most people. A snoring clinic can assess and advise depending on your specific oral health.
Is Sleepwell comfortable to wear whilst sleeping?
As Sleepwell is custom made to your mouth and includes a soft inner lining specifically adapted for your teeth, the device is very comfortable to wear. Full adjustability and side and to side movement mean that the guard can move with you during sleep.
