Sleep Apnoea

Good Health Dentistry Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Clinic acknowledges the severe health implications of snoring and sleep apnoea, as researched by the medical profession. We aim to permanently restore healthy breathing during sleep by correcting the size and shape of the airway and controlling the volume of air that is breathed. In most cases, it is possible to correct your sleep apnoea without the use of a sleep apnoea machine.

All snoring and sleep apnoea must be eliminated if a healthy life is to be lived, with Good Health Dentistry being some of the leading providers of sleep apnoea treatment in Sydney.

Sleep Disorders Sydney

Medical research has shown a clear link between sleep disorders and high blood pressure, strokes, arteriosclerosis and other heart diseases. Also related are most of the respiratory diseases of the nose, sinuses and lungs.

Over the last 20 years of practising dentistry, the role of the dentist in treating this disease is becoming more and more important. It is the most single important service that a dentist can perform that most significantly affects the health of the whole body. To improve your particular sleep disorder, Sydney locals can be sure Good Health Dentistry will take a holistic and thorough approach.

Snoring Solutions Sydney

The biggest problem is that many people do not take snoring and sleep apnoea seriously. Often, snoring is simply thought of as an inconvenient or embarrassing trait, causing couples to sleep in separate rooms. Another contributing problem is that currently, treatment of sleep disorders are controlled by the “sleep industry” whose sole purpose is to sell their CPAP machines. Instead, Good Health Dentistry are committed to providing true snoring solutions to Sydney patients to ensure you are properly diagnosed and treated.

We should be able to sleep peacefully and quietly with no noise or obstructions experienced while breathing. We should be able to sleep deeply and calmly, and wake up feeling completely refreshed, alert and full of energy. It is the duty of dentistry to offer this to our patients. The true question is: do we care enough to do something about it? With Good Health Dentistry’s sleep apnoea treatment, Sydney locals can enjoy a truly transformative change in their quality of life.

Sleep Apnoea Treatment Sydney

We have a choice no matter what our age to be healthy and bright. It has been estimated that if snoring and sleep apnoea is not treated, it can reduce an individual’s lifespan by 15 years. Most people today are doing nothing about it and those that wish to treat their condition are simply being told to use a CPAP machine for the rest of their life. This does not need to be the case for most people.

Snoring and sleep apnoea in children is also a serious problem among children, as it affects their growth and development significantly. A child should have no apnoeic event in sleep and should be as quiet as a mouse, otherwise there is resistance. This significantly affects their behaviour and their ability to excel at school. They should be checked for adenoid and tonsil enlargement by an ENT. The nasal passage should be clear of mucus and inflammation, but most importantly the child should breathe with their lips together, night and day.
