The British Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Association estimates that roughly 41% of the UK adult populations snores and, as well as being disruptive and annoying to you and your partner, it can have a significant, even dangerous, effect on your health, such as:
Regular snorers are 5 times more likely to develop heart disease, hypertension, irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia) or have a stroke compared to those who don’t snore
A condition where the stomach’s contents flow backward up into the oesophagus causing indigestion and heartburn
Snoring and sleep apnoea have been linked to higher rates of anxiety and depression
Especially upon waking in the morning.
"When I received my anti-snoring appliance, I wore it that night and the results were truly amazing – I never snored and I hardly moved in bed. I woke up fresh and felt I had a good night’s sleep."
Snoring occurs when the muscles of your throat relax, your tongue falls backward and your throat narrows, causing the walls to vibrate as you breathe. In extreme cases, the walls of the throat can collapse entirely which creates a serious condition known as sleep apnoea.
"So I went to see Dr Paul Reaney in Markethill, Co. Armagh not very hopeful of a solution to my snoring 😴. Following a number of appointments, I was fitted with a "mouth guard" bespoke to me. The immediate effect was no more snoring.
I'm also a Type 2 Insulin Dependent Diabete and am seeing signs of improved Diabete control at night (something I didn't expect). I will continue to monitor this.
I want to thank Paul and his team and to recommend far and wide the solution to my snoring. If it works for me (having tried everything else) it will work for anyone.
Great result and a very big thank you. "
