Snoring can be an affliction that affects not just the individual who suffers with the problem, but also those people who live with and sleep next to them. Here at Dr Andrew Baderski’s dental practice in Ingleburn we are the bearer of good news for the millions who snore, as well as their long- suffering families.
Snoring is a serious problem that affects people irrespective of gender or age. However, with that said, the habit does tend to be more common in men than women as a result of the anatomical variation in the throat.
At Dr Andrew Baderski’s Dental Practice we can help discover the reason why you are snoring and discuss the appropriate method of treatment. While there are a variety of causes for sleep disorders, sleep apnoea is a common cause for snoring, related to the positioning of your jaw. There are a number of ways in which we can effectively treat the issue; however, one of the most effective methods to treat the condition can be achieved by a simple oral application that you can wear while you sleep.
Sleep in peace and comfort with a custom fitted night guard
At Dr Andrew Baderski’s Dental Practice we can provide you with a custom fit plastic splint worn in the mouth like a gumshield that can substantially reduce stop snoring for most people. A splint, or more commonly known as a night guard, can prevent the jaw from moving backwards during sleep. When this occurs, the sufferer may stop breathing for several seconds as the muscles in the soft palate, tongue and tonsils relax during sleep, closing the airways and making the heart work much harder.
We have effectively helped many of our patients which have provided positive results by significantly reducing and, even eliminating, snoring altogether— providing a lasting and permanent solution to our patients. Our oral appliances are comfortable, FDA approved, and easy to wear so that you can end your snoring problems and achieve a better night’s sleep.

Treat a multitude of symptoms with the application of a night guard
While a splint can help reduce snoring it can also be applied to treat a variety of other health issues related to the mouth nose and throat. Firstly, it can be used to significantly reduce the symptoms associated with Bruxism, a condition in which the patient grinds their teeth and clenches there jaw, commonly caused by high levels of stress. With the application of a night guard we can help to remedy any or all of the following symptoms:
- Morning headaches

- Pain in the face
- Painful jaw joints
- Occasional mouth swelling
Not only can a night guard help to reduce bruxism, it can also help reduce symptoms associated with Temporomandibular Joint Disorder (TMD). As TMD is commonly caused by Bruxism (clenching of the jaw or grinding of the teeth) wearing a night guard can help control muscle tension and reduce the pain.
