Snoring Solutions and Mouth Guards

Icon

Snoring can be a miserable affliction for those affected and their partners and families. Snoring happens when the muscles in your throat relax in your sleep so that they are less effective in keeping your breathing passages open. The soft sides of the airway close in, which means the air has to move faster through a small space, causing vibrations of the soft tissues that leads to the noise of snoring.

Excess body weight, heavy alcohol consumption and other sedatives, or sleeping on your back can increase the severity of snoring. It can also cause health issues for the snorer and is sometimes connected with sleep apnoea, where the sufferer actually stops breathing for a time, which can cause drowsiness in the daytime and put an extra strain on the heart – this should be investigated by your doctor.

At Hest Bank Dental Care we offer the Silensor - a new system designed to help you stop snoring. The Silensor uses clear plastic mouldings shaped to fit your teeth, which you wear at bedtime. The top and bottom mouldings are connected at the sides by short plastic links that pull your lower jaw slightly forward, which holds the airways open to reduce the narrowing that causes snoring.

Snoring solutions are priced individually, depending on requirements.

Mouth guards are an important piece of equipment for anyone participating in sports, such as football, rugby, basketball, hockey, that involve falls, body contact or flying equipment that may cause injury to the mouth, including broken teeth and cut lips.

At Hest Bank Dental Care, we offer custom made mouth guards that are individually designed and made in a professional dental laboratory to provide the most comfortable fit and the best protection. We start by taking an impression of your teeth and then construct your mouth guard over a model of them. You can even choose almost any design and colour for your mouth guard.

Sports mouth guards start from £75.  

Night guards protect your teeth from grinding while you sleep, which can cause great discomfort, muscle spasm, and harm and wear to your teeth. Grinding can happen unconsciously while you’re asleep and can cause lots of damage to your teeth and jaw joint.

The mouth guard is made to fit your teeth very accurately, allowing you to wear it at night to prevent the wear and tear and to reposition your jaw to break the grinding cycle.

Night guards prices start from £85.
