If your GP thinks your snoring may be a sign of obstructive sleep apnea, he or she may ask you to undertake a sleep apnea assessment.
Treatments for sleep apnea often work for snoring too, even if you don’t have sleep apnea. In addition, snoring can be treated with other techniques, including implants in your soft palate, laser surgery and radiofrequency ablation.
One of the simplest treatments is a method which is also used for obstructive sleep apnea called Continuous Open Airway Therapy (COAT™) by SomnoMed.
Worn in your mouth while you sleep, a SomnoMed COAT device moves your lower jaw forward to prevent your tongue and the soft tissue in your mouth falling back and blocking your airway while you sleep.
SomnoMed manufactures the world’s leading COAT device. It’s called SomnoDent® and it’s available in Australia from specially trained dentists.
While we sleep, gravity and muscle relaxation allows the tongue and surrounding soft tissue to fall back into the throat area, collapsing the airway and obstructing the air flow.
Custom-fit by a dentist, SomnoDent® oral devices treat OSA by moving the lower jaw slightly forward. This forward movement keeps the airway open, preventing apneas.
Continuous Open Airway Therapy (COAT)® is a category of products that treat patients seeking an easy, efficient solution for OSA, or obstructive sleep apnea.
