Dental sleep

We support patients who need dental appliances to help them sleep better.

Our mandibular repositioning appliances (MRA) are similar to a gum shield. They're worn in your mouth when sleeping and used to treat snoring and mild to moderate sleep apnoea. Sleep apnoea is interrupted breathing during sleep. Wearing the device holds the airway open, so that breathing becomes easier and oxygen levels in the blood are normalised.

We work alongside the general sleep service and treat people following a sleep study and diagnosis of obstructive sleep apnoea.

You'll need a complete dental assessment before being measured for our appliances. This is to minimise and prevent future complications.
