Sleep Apnoea is a medical condition. It is not just the unattractive snoring habit that concerns healthcare professionals but its ability to affect the quality of life of such individuals. Sufferers are affected by increased daytime sleepiness and tiredness.
The walls and muscles of the upper airway which includes the tongue, soft palate, etc. relax in such a way during sleep causing the airway to be blocked. The air flow can be blocked causing sleep apnoea.
Mild to moderate forms of sleep apnoea can be treated by the use of oral appliances.
