Snoring

Custom Made Snoring Appliances & Sleep Apnoea Solutions

Are you embarrassed by your snoring? DOES YOUR PARTNER’S SNORING KEEP YOU AWAKE?

Snoring occurs when the area at the back of the throat or nose relaxes or narrows, restricting airflow and resulting in a snoring noise.

Snoring can be caused by:

  • Illnesses, such as asthma, tonsillitis, colds and sinus infections
  • Allergies
  • Being overweight
  • Smoking
  • Medications, such as sleeping tablets or antihistamines
  • Alcohol

You’re not alone. Snoring affects roughly 20% of adults during their lifetime.

In addition to snorers keeping their partner, and often other family members awake, snoring has been linked to serious health concerns, such as heart disease, high blood pressure and stroke.

Snoring appliances, called Mandibular Advancement Devices, can help with snoring. The devices hold the lower jaw and tongue forward to keep the airway open during sleep.

If you want to finally get a good night’s sleep and wake up refreshed, North Shore Dentistry can help you or your partner with a custom-made snoring appliance.

Peace of Mind at North Shore Dentistry

The Recent Revelations of Infection Control Standard Violations by Several Sydney Dental Practices Have Put Dental Disinfection, Sterilisation and Patient Safety in the Spotlight.

Thousands of patients have been put at risk due to the breakdown in sterilisation and cleaning of equipment at several Sydney dental practices, echoing similar recent cases across Australia. Six dentists were suspended this month and authorities have closed one practice. Although NSW Health have said that there is only a ‘low risk’ of infection and so far there is no evidence a patient has been infected as a result of the breaches.

“The community can continue to have confidence in the dental system in NSW and that the delivery of dentistry in NSW will be in a safe way and to a high standard”

Jeremy McAnulty

(NSW Health – director of health protection)

“Patients can feel safe Australia has the highest standards of infection control in the world.”

Dr Rick Olive

(Australian Dental Association President)

Peace of mind at North Shore Dentistry

We have always maintained strict disinfection and sterilisation techniques at North Shore Dentistry. Our team is committed to continuous education on new techniques and technologies to keep improving the high quality of dental care we provide to our patients. Rest assured that our experienced, caring team always undertake safe practices and strive to ensure your dental experience is a positive one.

Ozone Disinfection

Cleaning dental instruments is a four-stage process that includes washing, disinfection, sterilisation and packaging. One of the ways we comprehensively account for proper disinfection and sterilisation at North Shore Dentistry is through the use of ozone and autoclave technology.

Evidence shows that ozone effectively kills bacteria, fungi, viruses and parasites and out performs almost all disinfectants and antiseptics. At North Shore Dentistry all our instruments are disinfected using ozonated water and washed in a 95 degree dishwasher prior to being autoclaved, ensuring maximum infection control. Autoclaving sterilises equipment by way of high-pressure saturated steam inside a pressure chamber.

Ozone is also used in a number of procedures including root canal and restorative treatments to minimise the chance of re-infection and post-operative pain. There are no toxic by-products from ozone use and it in fact helps promote healing.

Diane – Our Sterilisation Coordinator

Diane has enjoyed a long and varied career, with over 30 years experience in many areas of dentistry. She brings a wealth of experience in paediatrics, oral and maxillofacial surgery, IV sedation, general anaesthetics and more. Her skills provide a high level of support to our dentists and ensure we continue to offer excellent patient care.
