Sleep Disorder Treatment for Sleep Apnoea & Bruxism 

A sleep disorder can be categorised as any condition that significantly changes the quality of your sleep. Sleep disorders can have serious negative implications on overall health and quality of life. Disturbed sleep is the root cause of many gastrointestinal and cardiovascular conditions and can be identified by a range of symptoms.  

One of the most common sleep disorders among adults is sleep apnoea. This is a condition caused by irregular breathing during sleep, typically due to an obstruction of the body’s airways.  

Park Ridge Dental’s expert team can help with the management and treatment of sleep apnoea. Book an appointment with us today if you are experiencing irregular sleep cycles, breathing problems, fatigue and difficulty sleeping at night.  

What is Sleep Apnoea? 

When we fall asleep, our body finds a natural, stable breathing pattern that is maintained over the course of the night. Sleep apnoea is a condition that causes that stable breathing pattern to be interrupted, leading to low quality sleep. Patients with severe sleep apnoea may stop breathing for lengthy periods of time, which can lead to serious health consequences.  

Symptoms of Sleep Apnoea  

The most common symptoms if sleep apnoea are:  

  • Constant daytime sleepiness 
  • Low quality sleep  
  • Difficulty falling asleep  
  • Difficulty concentrating on normal, everyday tasks 
  • Morning headaches  
  • Chest pain at night  

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact Park Ridge Dental, where our team of experts may assist with a personalised course of treatment.  

What Causes Sleep Apnoea?  

While there are several factors that can increase a person’s risk of developing obstructive sleep apnoea, the most common ones are: 


Physical changes that occur in a person’s airways over time can cause them to partially collapse during sleep.  


Research indicates that even a 10% increase in body weight can make a person six times more likely to develop sleep apnoea.  

Other Physical Features  

Some people are born with certain features that naturally obstruct the airways during sleep. If an individual has a lower jaw set far back in the mouth, enlarged tonsils, a deviated septum or excess tissue in the throat may experience symptoms of sleep apnoea.  

How Does Park Ridge Dental Treat Sleep Apnoea?  

At Park Ridge Dental, we believe by using effective oral appliances and making certain lifestyle changes, it can help improve the effects of those who suffer from mild to moderate sleep apnoea.   

Oral appliances such as mouthguards help stabilise a person’s airways by supporting the jaw, mouth, and soft tissue. They help keep the airways open so that a normal breathing pattern can be achieved by the body.
