    Dental Sleep Medicine

    Sleeping disorders leave us feeling sluggish and fatigued and prevent us from enjoying each new day. Dental sleep medicine is a field of dental practice that deals with the use of oral appliances, such as anti-snoring devices, to treat sleeping disorders like sleep apnea and snoring. The best form of treatment for each patient is usually co-determined by a dentist and a sleep physician.

    What is sleep apnea?

    Sleep apnea is a disorder where a person stops breathing repeatedly in their sleep due to a complete or partial blocking of their airway. “Apnea” literally means “without breath”. 

    Does sleep apnea sound unfamiliar to you? It is actually more common than you think. Unfortunately, most cases of sleep apnea go undiagnosed. In fact, a 2016 study by Jurong Health Services has found that 1 in 3 Singaporeans suffers from moderate to severe sleep apnea, and 1 in 10 suffers from severe sleep apnea. Yet, up to 90% of these cases were previously undiagnosed. 

    Are you suffering from sleep apnea?

    You may have sleep apnea if you are experiencing the following symptoms: 

    • Excessive gasping or snoring during sleep
    • Difficulty falling asleep.
    • Headaches in the morning
    • Dry mouth in the morning

     

    The severity of your condition is based on the frequency and duration of your apnea. 

    How is sleep apnea treated?

    Depending on the severity of your condition, different treatments may be recommended. If your case is mild, your dentist may suggest that you wear an anti-snoring device during sleep. For more severe cases of sleep apnea, you may be advised to see a specialised sleep physician for more complex treatment. 

    What is an anti-snoring device?

    An anti-snoring device, also known as a Mandibular Advancement Device (MAD), helps to reposition your jaw and tongue to improve air circulation. A mould will be taken of your teeth to create a custom-fitted device.
