At Dental On Fullarton cosmetic dentistry is not the only passion the dentists share. Both Dr Pazios and Dr Parvar believe a healthy and happy life begins with a good nights sleep...and a beautiful smile.
Snoring and sleep apnoea are not just an annoyance, but can also lead to more severe medical conditions. Studies have shown that an effective treatment for both snoring and sleep apnoea is through customised dental sleep appliances.
This treatment involves the dentist taking an impression of your teeth and custom designing a high strength acrylic appliance to sit on top of your teeth. This device is worn during sleep and works by bringing the lower jaw forward, thus clearing the airways and preventing the soft tissue from collapsing into the back of the airway. This stops the cause of snoring and sleep apnoea, leading to a restful night sleep for both you and your partner.
This treatment has been well received by patients, some even claiming that the dental sleep appliance has 'saved my marriage'.
