Snoring affects many people in Australia, not to mention their partners and families. There are several factors that could contribute to, or be the cause of your snoring:
Snoring itself is not a major issue, however loud snoring can be a sign of a more serious issue. If you or your partner suffers from particularly loud snoring, as well as waking up feeling ill-rested or fatigued, then you may have a condition called obstructive sleep apnoea.

Obstructive sleep apnoea occurs when the muscles at the back of the throat relax and fall, obstructing the airway and causing a reverberation as air passes through. In the event that this occurs breathing can become so difficult that the sufferer stops breathing in their sleep, causing them to eventually awaken when the brain detects a lack of oxygen. Some obstructive sleep apnoea sufferers have hundreds of these episodes a night, often without even remembering them.
At Precise Dental Surgery we are committed to your dental wellbeing. In order to address sleep apnoea we offer a range of treatments, such as employing the use of snoring appliances like SomnoMed to ensure you and your partner get a proper nights’ sleep.
Somnomed utilises a three step anti-snoring system which gently shifts your lower jaw forward to help tighten the muscles in your airway – allowing the easy passage of air and helping to curb the sound of snoring. This snoring appliance is comfortable and custom made to fit seamlessly in your mouth.
If you believe you may have sleep apnoea then please do not hesitate to contact our team today for a consultation. During this consultation we can assess your symptoms and suggest the most appropriate method of treatment.

What are Dental Veneers?
Dental veneers are small thin porcelain shells that are placed directly on top of your teeth. They can eliminate gaps between teeth, tooth discolouration and broken / chipped teeth.
What are Dental Crowns?
Like veneers, dental crowns are made of porcelain and act as a cap or crown for your teeth. They are often combined with dental bridges to replace missing teeth.
When should my child start seeing the dentist?
We recommend your child starts visiting the dentist from an early age, preferably when they are around 7 years old.
What is the difference between conventional braces and Invisalign?
There are many differences between Invisalign and conventional braces. For example, with Invisalign you can straighten your teeth without anyone knowing as Invisalign aligners are virtually invisible. Invisalign aligners are also removable meaning you can brush and floss as you would normally – this is something you cannot do with conventional braces. Despite this, conventional braces can be a more suitable option for those with more subnational orthodontic concerns.
What are Dental Implants?
Dental implants are widely considered the modern solution to missing teeth and dentures. Replace missing teeth with dental implants which act and feel like normal teeth. They consist of a titanium screw-like post which is implanted into the jawbone. The implant will then bond with your jawbone to provide stimulation and support for a dental crown or bridge.
What is a root canal?
The root canal is the space within the root of a tooth. Root canal treatment is recommended for patients with infected tooth pulps. The best indication of infection is severe dental pain or sensitivity.
How can you restore my smile?
Advancements in dental technology allow us to completely restore a patient’s smile. There are a variety of treatments that may be suggested. We recommend you visit our practice and schedule in a dental consultation. This allows us to assess your dental health and develop a plan of action to ensure you have healthy teeth for life.
My wisdom teeth are causing pain. Should I have them removed?
Because often modern jaws are not big enough to accommodate these extra teeth, in the majority of cases we do recommend they are removed. We recommend you come into our practice for a thorough examination to determine the path we take in ensuring your dental health.
I am afraid of the dentist. Do you offer virtually pain free dentistry?
For anxious patients, we provide a number of pain management options including happy gas and sleep dentistry to ensure that these patients can receive the dental work they need. To learn more please visit our sleep dentist page.
How often should I visit the dentist for a dental check-up?
We recommend you visit our practice every 6 months for your dental check-up and fluoride treatment. This way minors dental issues can be addressed before they potentially become major problems.
