Over the years we have been asked to fit devices to stop or reduce snoring . snoring can range from simply snoring , be due to blocked nasal airway after trauma, etc, or can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnoea. Therefore we felt that simply fitting an anti snoring device without a specialist consultation to exclude other factors would reduce the effectiveness of the device where snoring was due to another cause. As a result of this and a recent opportunity we were pleased to host The Snoring Centre headed by Mr Murray Waldron, Consultant ENT Specialist at Oraprime Orthodontics. In this way we can target a more specific treatment plan to a specific cause of snoring. In many cases this may not involve an anti snoring device but ,for example, a treatment under local anaesthetic to the palate.
