What is a Snoring Mouth Guard (Mandibular Advancement Splint)?
A Snoring Mouth Guard (Mandibular Advancement Splint) is a device that is worn in the mouth to bring the lower jaw forward.
This brings the tongue forward to allow to keep your airway open when you are sleeping at night.
Why do I need to wear a snoring mouth guard (mandibular advancement splint)?
If you are suffering from snoring or sleep apnoea, your tongue falls back and blocks your airway when you are in deep sleep.
This is what causes your snoring or apnoea.
By wearing a mandibular advancement splint you can keep your tongue from falling back and therefore keep your airway open.
Are there any other options apart from CPAP to treat my sleep apnoea?
