Sleep Apnea Treatment in Sydney

The Dental Sleep Medicine Centre at Mayflower Dental in Sydney can help you or your loved ones suffering from sleep apnea.

What is Sleep Apnea?

Have you been told that you snore loudly or make frequent gasping noises when you sleep? If so, it is possible that you have a condition called sleep apnea. Sleep apnea occurs when you continually stop breathing for as little as 10 seconds or as long as one minute or more during your sleep session.

Effects of Sleep Apnea

Over an 8-hour sleeping period, you could potentially stop breathing hundreds of times lowering oxygen levels to unacceptable lows.

Daytime effects of sleep apnea on your body and mind include:

  • Low energy levels
  • Concentration difficulties
  • Headaches
  • Irritability
  • Dry or sore throat
  • Tendency to doze off

Because apneas disrupt sleep patterns and prevent you from getting deep, refreshing sleep, it can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, gastric reflux (GERD) and weight gain, as well as increase your risk of driving accidents.

Our Sleep Study Clinic in Sydney

To be properly diagnosed with obstructive sleep apnea, it is necessary for you to visit a sleep study clinic or have a home sleep study.

Dr. Chris Law and the team at Mayflower Dental is qualified to treat snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnea in patients whose condition has been confirmed by a physician.

Through sleep apnea treatment, they can help you to not only sleep more soundly but also to feel better during your waking hours.

Our sleep studies are supervised by a Registered Respiratory Therapist. Tammy Weagle, RRT, brings over 15 year experience to the Sleep Centre.

Sleep easy with Mandibular Repositioning Devices (MRD’s)

Research has proven that Mandibular Repositioning Devices can be used to alleviate sleep apnea.

These devices separate the jaw and push them forward slightly. This repositioning opens up the airway, and allows oxygen to flow freely again. 

Wearers of Mandibular Repositioning Devices report that they stop loud snoring, feel more rested in the daytime, and are much more comfortable going to sleep. In some cases, these appliances can help offer a viable alternative to Continuous Positive Airway Pressure Machines (CPAP). 

Custom-made devices puts your personal comfort first. They are crafted from lightweight, flexible and mostly metal-free materials and gives you the freedom to talk and drink, unlike other appliances. This is a solution so comfortable, you’ll never want to go a night without. Get easygoing sleep therapy, night after night, with a Mandibular Repositioning Device.
