At Museum Dental Suites we see a lot of patients who come to us for help with snoring. It is a common problem. Snoring affects a lot of people to some extent or another but the kind of snoring that stops you breathing called sleep apnoea can be dangerous. Here are some frequently asked questions about snoring.
Snoring is vibration of tissue in the nose and the throat when the breathing is partially obstructed. Sleep apnoea and snoring affect some 50% of the population. The Somnowell snore guard is an excellent long lasting solution to snoring that will help patients and will cost about £1900, including consultation and review.
Snoring can be a sign that you have OSA but it could be due to other factors such as:
The symptoms of sleep apnoea will typically be
One of the most efficient ways of treating loud snoring that is caused by obstructive sleep apnoea is to use an oral appliance, that will help to keep breathing passages open when you sleep.
This is an excellent way to treat moderate obstructive sleep apnoea. This kind of device efficiently repositions the jaws and stabilises the tongue, enlarging the airway and stopping tongue obstruction. This will promote good airflow while you sleep.
The advantages of oral therapy is that it is not noisy and is easily transported. Other advantages include:
As well as prescribing an oral device, your dentist might recommend some other strategies that will help reduce your snoring such as:
You will have a complete clinical evaluation, to include examination of your tongue, teeth, jaw and airway. Your dentist will then take some tooth impressions.
Oral impressions will be customised using physical and digital models of your teeth. Those prints will be utilised to make a custom-fitted mouthpiece that will be made in the lab. You will return for a fitting and fine-tuning of the device with full instructions of how to use it. You will come for follow up visits so that the fit of your mouthpiece can be monitored. The benefits you will see will be:

Highly recommend Museum Dental Suite. Their work is of the highest calibre, professional and friendly. I'm very thankful they for excellent aftercare advice and for making me relaxed and so well treated. I've recommended them to both my family and friends.
I have been undertaking a cosmetic treatment (Invisalign) for around eight months here, off the back of a recommendation of a friend who had the same treatment. The professionalism and perfectionism with which my treatment was delivered was outstanding, as was the general service and were all of the staff I encountered.
My dentist Dr. Wahab Shakir was particularly great, with a friendly, reassuring manner and an eye for detail. He always went above and beyond, without ever being asked.
I'm now almost at the end of my treatment and couldn't be more pleased with how treatment has gone. Given the service and end result I'd also consider it excellent value for money.
Keep up the good work Museum Dental Suites!
Firstly what a great dentist, all the staff were friendly and very helpful as this was my first time here.
I had called for an emergency appointment due to a sudden cracked tooth and Dr Wahab Shakir despite the end of day fast approaching (30 minutes till close) he said he would see me.
The treatment was not straight forward due to the crack but Dr Shakir after a lengthy time managed to save the tooth/restore it and prevent what I believe most dentists would have done which install a crown - Thank you!
Highly recommend this dentist and service and I am grateful for not only seeing me within an hour but also staying passed closing time and finally for doing a Stella job.
This is a top notch dentist who makes you feel at ease which for someone liked me is important. The staff are very professional, polite, courteous and friendly. Marios, my dentist is extremely patient and cares about your dental care and the service you receive. Just received my new dentures and they have been done to a very high standard and am very pleased. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the treatment/service I received.
Best dentist ever hands down. Least painful and least scary experiences here (I'm usually really scared of going to the dentist, and even find the initial anaesthetic injection painful) - they really care about the patient, and making sure you're comfortable, results are also fab. Seriously can't imagine a better dentist!
After lots of research I was very happy with the results and the service at Museum Dental. 100% I would recommend to a friend. I couldn't be more pleased.
