A large percentage of people with snoring issues actually suffer from obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This effectively means the upper airway and airflow is stopped or greatly reduced when the tongue and throat tissue collapses against the back of the throat. If you or your partner find your sleep is routinely disturbed, snore soon after falling asleep, or you experience long pauses between breathing whilst sleeping, or suffer from restless sleep, exhaustion or narcolepsy during the day, it would be beneficial to see Dr Stefan for an assessment. Dr Stefan is a qualified and registered Somnowell provider, appliances that provide patients with the Gold Standard of treatment for snoring and sleep apnea. The appliance is comfortable and comes in a variety of colours, including clear, and is used only at night to maintain your jaw in the correct position. The Somnowell can be adjusted over time for comfort and to ensure snoring and sleep apnea never disturb you or your partner’s restorative and revitalising nights sleep.
