Snoring results from partial closing of the breathing passage during sleep. It can sometimes be a serious condition called SLEEP APNOEA. Dental appliances have been shown to effectively manage many snoring cases when worn at night to aid a more restful sleep for patient (and partner!).
At Wimborne Dental we offer Sleepwell. Sleepwell is a most cost effective and long term snoring treatment on the market to help quit snoring. Sleepwell prevents the lower jaw from dropping back during sleep thereby preventing the closure of your airways during sleep - an effective stop snoring remedy. Sleepwell is a custom made mouth piece produced within our laboratory to fit your teeth. Sleepwell has some unique features including a soft inner lining, allows side to side movement of the lower jaw and most importantly allows the patient to adjust it to maximise effectiveness. High levels of patient comfort meant that during clinical trials over 98% of patients found Sleepwell an acceptable snoring remedy.

What materials are used to make Sleepwell?Sleepwell is a laboratory manufactured mouth piece using an innovative material and is customised to the patients teeth with a special soft inner lining for maximum comfort and retention. It also incorporates a specially designed component which simultaneously ensures that the lower jaw is held in a forward position whilst allowing side to side movement during sleep.
Sleepwell - The most Clinically Effective Mandibular Advancement SplintThe Sleepwell works by holding the bottom jaw in a slightly forward position. This action is similar to doing a chin lift in 'First Aid', by holding the bottom jaw forward by just a few millimetres allows the tongue to move forward and opens the airway significantly. By allowing the passage of air more freely reduces snoring.
Sleepwell can give you a cost effective restful night's sleepAs with many healthcare products such as contact lenses the cost of Sleepwell can be made more manageable with monthly payment schemes available from most snoring clinics. The price of Sleepwell is around £350.00. The prices advertised on this website are current to the best of our knowledge, but we recommend confirming the price with the clinic at the time of making your enquiry.
How long does Sleepwell last?
Sleepwell should last around 3 years and in this context it is not too dissimilar to the replacement of spectacles. S4S offers a 1-year manufacturing guarantee. Sleepwell has been designed to overcome the problems leading to breakages with alternative splint designs. Due to it's customised nature it would only need to be remade if patients underwent extensive dental treatment, however the cost of replacement would be minimised because of its two-piece design
