Sleep apnea treatment in Stamford Hill, London

What is a sleep apnea treatment?

Sleep apnea treatment is designed to help those with sleep apnea, a medical condition where breathing starts and stops during sleep. These breathing interruptions reduce oxygen levels in the blood, and with the change in pattern in sleep, adrenalin is released, breaking up slumber. It can lead to broken sleep for snorers and their partners – and can affect the quality of life. Here are a couple of consequences of living with sleep apnea:


  • Daytime sleepiness – decreasing motivation and increased risk of accidents at work or commuting to work.
  • Reduced energy – leading to poor motivation to exercise, work or day-to-day activities.
  • Hypertension – elevated risk of high blood pressure.

How do you diagnose sleep apnea?

If you’re experiencing sleep apnea symptoms, it’s worth seeing your GP for a thorough analysis. They’re likely to offer you a series of tests by giving you devices to monitor your breathing whilst you sleep at night. With a diagnosis, you can source treatment.

Sleep apnea/snoring treatment

Mandibular Advancement Splint therapy (MAS Therapy) offers effective treatment for simple snoring and mild/moderate obstructive sleep apnea.

What is Mandibular Advancement Splint (MAS therapy)?

It’s a collective name for mouthpieces, designed to prevent the lower jaw from dropping back during sleep, reducing the risk of the airways narrowing. A narrowing airway causes soft tissue to vibrate and results in snoring – hence why MAS therapy is an effective solution.

The appliance isn’t there to cure the disorder but instead works by temporarily repositioning the lower jaw forwards. The tongue and soft palate are also moved forwards, alleviating airway obstruction. To get the most out of this treatment, it’s essential to wear it every night. Although it’s worth noting, there is no guarantee that an appliance will be effective in every patient due to individual variations in response.

The best clinically proven mandibular advancement splint is Sleepwell, available from S4S-trained dentists. Lower-cost self-diagnosis treatments are called Snoresolve and Snoreshield.

Important information for patients

Getting the right treatment is the step in the right direction for your sleep apnea or snoring problems. After your fitting, it’s essential to fill out a form and write down feedback on how you’re responding to the treatment and also those who it has been affecting.


Side effects may also occur. Most patients report either a dry mouth or an excessive amount of saliva, however, these effects can lessen over time. Also, some patients feel their teeth do not come together properly or their face feels tender, again, this should pass quite quickly. Persistent long-term use can also result in a degree of movement in your teeth if you don’t maintain your gum health – and a reason why it’s important to practise good oral care.
