Is snoring making your life a misery? If so, help is at hand.

Snoring is a common problem which causes friction within many relationships but it is much more than a social problem: it may also be damaging your health. Simple snoring has been associated with high blood pressure, diabetes and hardening of the arteries.

Snoring is also a major symptom of a serious medical condition called Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) which is associated with several serious health problems such as heart attack and stroke.

At Blairgowrie Dental Care we provide a screening service to all snorers and if OSA is suspected you will be referred for further investigation. If not, you will be offered treatment with a custom made oral device, which is considerably more effective than the 'boil and bite' devices that can be purchased via the internet.

This treatment can only be safely delivered by a dental practitioner who has received documented training in Dental Sleep Medicine.

At Blairgowrie Dental Care these treatments are carried out by two of our principle dentists Stewart McLean (trained in the Sleepwell Snoring appliance) and Neil Rutherford (trained at the British Society of Dental Sleep Medicine).
