Whilst you’re asleep, your body is still working, rebalancing chemicals and repairing itself.

Sleep can help reduce the effects of many health problems, increasing memory, improving metabolism and helping us perform daily tasks more effectively. A good night’s sleep can also play an important role in oral health, reducing stress levels which can make you less susceptible to infection.

In some cases, a lack of sleep can be attributed to snoring or obstructive sleep apnoea – a condition where the airway is obstructed during sleep resulting in an interruption to breathing.

Broken sleep over many years can have a negative effect on overall health and life expectancy.

Sufferers of Obstructive Sleep Apnoea and snorers (and their partners) can benefit greatly from using a dental appliance called a Somnowell. This small, discreet device worn orally at night significantly improves breathing, resulting in better quality sleep and a more restful night all round.

Ben Pearson is a member of the British Society of Dental Sleep Medicine and a Somnowell Platinum Practitioner. He would be pleased to discuss your needs with you.

Interest-free credit is available to help spread the cost.
