Snoring and sleep apnea treatment has in recent years been made smaller, simpler and more comfortable. Sleepwell Appliances incorporate the latest technology for the treatment of snoring and sleep apnea. They provide a reversible, non invasive treatment without the use of drugs or moving part machinery of any kind.
A Sleepwell is a custom made oral device, which is worn in the mouth during sleep to reduce snoring and/or sleep apnea. It is a Patent Pending design, which looks similar to two sports mouthguards. These are worn simultaneously, allowing the coloured acrylic bite-ramps to interface and gently position the lower jaw forward. There is a soft inner surface that fits snuggly around the teeth and gums, holding the appliance securely in place.
