What Is Sleep Apnoea?

Sleep apnoea is a common type of sleep disorder that is usually characterized by abnormal pauses in breathing or instances of shallow or infrequent breathing during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is the most common form of apnoea.

Wake up Refreshed, Not Tired

Dr Anna Lee recommends that her patients consult an ENT doctor, prior to seeing her, to get an assessment of the severity of their sleep apnoea. If they are found to have a mild case of sleep apnoea after visiting the ENT doctor, Dr Lee proceeds by taking a model of the patient’s mouth and a bite registration from them.

All of Dr Lee’s models are sent to the SleepWise Clinic in Melbourne where the personalised models are actually constructed. This process usually takes about fifteen working days.

Once the model is ready, the patient returns to our practice and the device is fitted.

This service is recommended for people with mild to moderate sleep apnoea or snoring. For cases of severe sleep apnoea, Dr Lee recommends the use of a CPAP (Continuous Positive Airway Pressure) machine.
