Sleep Apnoea and Custom Night Guards

Sleep Apnoea and Custom Night Guards in Jimboomba

At Flagsmile Dental, we want to be your one-stop shop for holistic health. Our custom-made night guards are a great alternative to CPAP machines for our patients with sleep apnoea. We work closely with sleep clinics, and we can also refer you out for a sleep study if you haven’t had one yet.

Symptoms of Sleep Apnoea

There are many symptoms of sleep apnoea, and a sleep study will help determine the cause of your symptoms, which may include:

  • Snoring
  • Dry mouth when you wake up (from sleeping with your mouth open)
  • Teeth grinding (bruxism)
  • Not feeling rested in the morning even though you slept the whole night
  • Headaches upon waking

Custom Night Guards

There are over-the-counter night guards, but having a night guard custom-made for your mouth offers the best comfort and most effective way to help you sleep and breathe better. If you have severe sleep apnoea, your doctor may still recommend a CPAP machine (which can also be used in conjunction with a custom night guard). For mild to moderate sleep apnoea, a custom night guard may be more comfortable and convenient, as it can be easily used if you are traveling. And if you don’t need a CPAP machine but your spouse is annoyed about your incessant snoring, a custom night guard can help your sleep and keep your partner happy!

Most of our patients who have tried custom night guards report better sleep, less pain and feeling more rested upon waking. Getting enough oxygen while you sleep can definitely improve your quality of life and the enjoyment you get out of your daily activities.
