Snoring info for patients

As a snorer, you may for the most part be blissfully unaware of the problem you cause those trying to sleep near you. If, however, your bed partner’s sleep is disturbed on a regular basis and you find yourself sleeping downstairs or in the spare room, there are options.

Once you are sure you want to address your snoring problem, read this information page and click on the Dentist Search link to find a British Society of Dental Sleep Medicine (BSDSM) dentist, who can help determine the most appropriate treatment for you. Snoring is a major symptom of a serious medical condition called ‘obstructive sleep apnoea’ (OSA), so careful screening to preclude the presence of this condition will be carried out prior to any treatment being started.

Whilst not all snorers have OSA, virtually all those with apnoea snore!

BSDSM
Snoring Treatment Options

During sleep, the pharyngeal airway (throat) narrows, due to a reduction in muscle tone. Snoring is simply a vibratory noise generated by the back of the relaxed tongue, pharynx and soft palate.

BSDSM
Is treatment really necessary?

‘Benign’ snoring can be far from benign. The social consequences can be extremely distressing: banishment from the bedroom, marital disharmony, no holidays because of enforced sleep disruption when sharing a hotel room, fear of travelling – falling asleep during long journeys on public transport and the consequent ridicule and embarrassment.

BSDSM
Is the problem only severe snoring?

Obstructive sleep apnoea, resulting in serious sleep disruption, can produce greatly impaired performance at work, at home, and on the road. Car accidents are statistically much more common in this group.
