Non-surgical Treatments

There are several non-surgical treatments for mild snoring to help ease your sleep…

Our ENT surgical specialists are able to conduct non-surgical treatments for mild snoring, which may be as simple as prescribing an inhaled steroid preparation for forms of snoring caused by swelling of the lining of the nose.

Another non-surgical appliance is the mandibular advancement splint…

This appliance is a dental splint that sits within the mouth and holds the jaw in a forward position in order to open the airway to allow for better breathing. This appliance is custom-made to your jaw so it fits comfortably in the mouth while you sleep, and is a no risk, pain free option to reduce vibrations made within the throat to minimise snoring.

The continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) appliance…

The CPAP device uses a mask that sits over the nose and mouth and is held in place with straps over the head. This mask is then connected to a machine that creates pressurised airflow, and is to be worn whilst asleep. This pressurised air works as a splint to keep the soft tissues of the nose and throat on their desired positions so the airway remains open and unobstructed.
