Up to 40% of the population in industrialized countries snore which increases to 60% in men above 60 years old. The muscles in the patients head and throat relaxes and narrows the airways making it smaller and closed in. Air then has to travel our faster and go through a smaller space to keep the air ways open as the bodies self defence mechanism. This causes the soft tissues in the mouth to vibrate due to the increased speed of air travelling out and gives the snoring noise.
Evidence suggest if left untreated, it may become worse over time as they appear to damage blood vessels that supply muscles in the head and neck. This causes the head & neck muscles to become weaker. If the muscles are weakened it will affect the ability keep the patients airways open, making the patient snore more frequent and louder.
Sleep apnea is a common disorder where the patient has shallow or pauses in their breathing during sleeping. The pauses can last from a few second to a few minutes and can occur 30 times or more per hour. This is a chronic condition that disrupts the patients sleep by going into a light sleep rather than a deep sleep. As a result the quality of sleep is poor, this makes the patient tired during the day.
The Silensor SL is a custom made device that holds the airways open by moving the lower jaw forward. The vibrating noise (snoring) decreases as the body does not need to combat keeping the airways open as it is mechanically being held open. The device fits over the patients top and bottom teeth when the patients about to go to sleep and is held in place by two connectors on each side that pulls the lower jaw forward to hold and keep the airways open. The connectors come in 4 sizes and determines how far forward the lower jaw can be tolerated.
