Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA)

Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) is most often noticed through excessive snoring and can be harmful to your health. In some cases it may ultimately lead to life-threatening conditions such as stroke, heart disease or increased blood pressure. The use of specialised mouth-pieces can be an effective method of treating both snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea.

Symptoms of OSA:

  • Choking or gasping during sleep

  • Morning headache
  • Excessive daytime sleepiness
  • Memory deterioration
  • Anxiety or depression
