Last Updated on 15th June 2023 Snoring happens when the muscles in our upper airway relax and cause an obstruction. These obstructions then cause the soft tissue around the airway passage to vibrate, which creates the sound many of us know only too well if we share a bed with a snorer! Did you know that the dentists here at Evesham Dental Health Team on Broadway Road are able to make anti-snoring appliances? These removable devices are designed to be worn at night and work by gently holding the lower jaw and tongue in an ‘advanced position’ whilst you sleep. This keeps the airway open which in ..read more

Local anaesthetic causes absence of pain. It stops the part of your body sending signals to your brain. You shouldn’t be able to feel any discomfort after having a local anaesthetic, although you may still feel some pressure or movement. It normally only takes a few minutes to lose feeling in the area where a local anaesthetic is given and full sensation should return when worn off a few hours later. Dentists use local anaesthetic to numb areas of the mouth that require dental treatments, including fillings and implants. It is administered using an injection.
