Snoring Diagram Dr Hafsa Alidrissi Dubai

Up to 40% of the population in industrialised countries snore. The decreasing muscle tone during the sleep causes a narrowing of the upper respiratory tract. This narrowing accelerates the respiratory airflow, thereby various structures in the area of the upper respiratory tract start to vibrate and cause the snoring noise. So snoring is a mechanical process that can be counteracted mechanically. Here the dental therapy comes into action. Light or primary snoring do not have consequences on health whereas the rhonchopathy, the abnormal snoring does.

Sleep Apnea is, at a certain level of severity, a serious disease that may cause not only sleepiness but also serious systemic diseases. The apnea is a total respiratory stop. The obstructive apnea is a complete occlusion of the respiratory tract whereas in case of the central apnea the central respiratory reflex arrests. The hypopnea is a reduction in the respiratory flow by more than 50%. Obstructive apnea is characterised by an interruption of the very noisy snoring. The central apnea, however, has no external signs.

The Solensor-sl consists of on splint for the upper jaw and one splint for the lower jaw. The lower jaw is either held in a predetermined position or advanced by 2 connectors that are fixed laterally to the splint. The Silensor-sl this counteracts the narrowing of the respiratory tracts. The velocity of the inspired air decreases and so do noise-generation vibrations of the soft tissues. With the Silensor-sl jaw movements are possible but no falling back of the lower jaw. With this function in the Silensor-sl is a comfortable and at the same time effective snore guard. Clinical tests have shown that the advancement of the lower jaw considerably reduces snoring at more than 80% of the patients.
