‘Over the years we have been asked to fit devices to stop or reduce snoring. snoring can range from simply snoring, be due to blocked nasal airway after trauma, etc, or can be a sign of obstructive sleep apnoea. Therefore we felt that simply fitting an anti snoring device without a specialist consultation to exclude other factors would reduce the effectiveness of the device where snoring was due to another cause. As a result of this we work with The Snoring Centre led by Mr Murray Waldron, Consultant ENT Surgeon.
In this way we can target a more specific treatment plan to a specific cause of snoring. In many cases this may not involve an anti snoring device.
