The Snore Clinic at St Albans Orthodontics

Sleep is such an important part of our daily lives, and snoring can cause many issues. According to the British Snoring and Sleep Apnoea Association, 41.5% of the UK population snores.

What many people don’t realise is that your teeth could be playing a part in your sleep patterns, too. At St Albans Orthodontics, we can help with our snore clinic.

An orthodontic solution to a good night’s sleep

Snoring and sleep problems are often related to orthodontic problems. This is often the case for patients who have bite problems, also known as a malocclusion (bad bite). Malocclusions, such as narrow arches and Class II bites, restrict the tongue space, making it difficult to breath and thus causing a person to snore. At St Albans Orthodontics, our sleep and anti-snoring clinic has been set up to treat patients whose bite problems are causing them sleep and snoring issues.
