Illume Supports National Stop Snoring Week with Snore Guard offer

Illume is delighted to announce it is offering 15% off Somnowell Snore Guards in support of National Stop Snoring Week, due to commence on Monday 28th April 2014.

National Stop Snoring Week, organised by the British Snoring & Sleep Apnoea Association, is an annual event that raises awareness of snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) as treatable conditions.

The Association has recently reported that although many individuals are aware of the associated health risks of OSA, they were unsure about the available methods to successfully treat the condition - most believed they would be able to seek help from their GPs, but did not name other health professionals such as dentists.

A dentist with post graduate training should be the first person to see to screen for OSA or to provide effective treatment for snoring. Clients with suspected OSA will be referred to a sleep specialist. In many cases, a custom made snore guard prescribed by a dentist and constructed by their technician will reduce or stop snoring, allowing you and your partner to enjoy a better night’s sleep.

Illume’s Practice Owner, Tim Rumney, comments, “Snoring is an extremely common condition that often causes embarrassment and relationship problems. As a result many individuals purchase products from the internet, not knowing who to turn to in order to resolve their issue.

“Dentists who have completed post graduate training are actually the best practitioners for the treatment of snoring because of their knowledge in prescribing precision made dental appliances. At Illume we provide our clients with Somnowell and Sleepwell snore guards, which have been proven to effectively combat snoring.”

Somnowell snore guards are popular precision-made appliances, which are extremely discreet, allowing individuals to speak, drink and take medication whilst wearing them.

In support of National Stop Snoring Week Illume is offering 15% off Somnowell Snore Guards to encourage clients to invest in a better night’s sleep for both themselves and their sleeping partners.

Tim continues, “Many of our clients often choose Somnowell snore guards, because they are very discreet and fit well, immediately improving any snoring issue.”
