What is Snoring?
Snoring is caused by the partial closure of the upper airway during sleep. The reduction in airflow causes the snoring sound as the soft tissues at the back of the throat vibrate. Sadly, snoring can lead to relationship issues, exhaustion, stress, and depression. In some cases, though not all, snoring can also indicate a condition called Sleep Apnoea – a potentially life-threatening condition if left untreated.
What is Sleep Apnoea?
Sleep Apnoea is caused by the repeated collapse of the airway during sleep, causing complete or partial airflow obstruction for longer than 10 seconds. Sometimes, the sleep apnoea sufferer can stop breathing at night, often waking themselves up with a snort or gasp. If untreated, these regular disruptions to sleep can lead to increased blood pressure, heightened risk of cardiovascular disease, strokes, diabetes and excessive daytime sleepiness.
The Silensor-sl consists of one splint for the upper jaw and one splint for the lower jaw. The lower jaw is either held in a predetermined position or advanced by 2 connectors that are fixed to the splint. It counteracts the narrowing of the respiratory tracts. It is a comfortable and effective snoreguard. Clinical tests have shown that the advancement of the lower jaw considerably reduces snoring considerably. It is cost effective, comfortable and easy to use.
