If There is a Silent Rattle When Breathing...
Snoring is not only annoying for your partner, it can also constitute - in rare cases- symptoms of a life endangering respiratory dysfunction (sleep apnoea). Therefore it is crucial, in cooperation with ENT specialist and a sleep physician, to exclude this dysfunction in the beginning of the therapy.
Whereas severe apnoae calls for operations of the soft palate and nasal septum as well as pressure ventilation, light snoring can be treated with a special protrusion splint.
An Intraoral Snoring Therapy Device (IST Device) is a protrusion splint, enabling forward displacement of the lower jaw. The jaw position can be easily relocated since the bone is only loosely connected to muscles. Relocating the entire muscle apparatus inclusive of the tongue bone, the airway space (where breathable air passes) is widened. Thereby, narrow airways are expanded and snoring and sleeping become calmer.
Found or very loud breathing noise, explosion like breathtaking, irregular setting out of breathing as well as frequent sleep disturbances accompany heavy tiredness and increased risk of accidents (momentary nodding off).
Sleeping should be examined by a sleep specialist. Measuring sleep behaviour as well as quality of sleep take place in a sleeping laboratory or alternatively, outpatient recording is possible.
Various causes for snoring are interdepend. Frequent reasons are:
-overweight and adiposis in lateral throat area that flutter with breathing air
-missing or limited nose respiration
-malposition of the jaw, jaw and tongue bone narrow airways
