If left untreated, sleep apnoea may reduce the oxygen necessary for optimal systemic health, and this might lead to the following signs and symptoms:

  • High blood pressure
  • Weight gain
  • Mood changes
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Type II diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Vehicle accidents

Fortunately, your dentist in Darwin offers sleep apnoea treatment.

How Your Dentist Can Treat Sleep Apnoea

Your Darwin dentist provides treatment after a sleep specialist has approved you. Treatment includes a custom device that gently opens your airway throughout the night. This appliance is ideal for patients who do not do well with traditional CPAP machines; these machines can be cumbersome and uncomfortable when you’re trying to rest.  

Our patients have been happy with our 3DS Advance device, which has been shown to work well for mild to moderate sleep apnoea. The device brings the lower jaw and tongue away from the soft palate. The result is an airway that does not collapse but remains open. It may even eliminate snoring.
