Dentist Recommendation for Anti-Snoring Device

Minxette in Upper Tooting
Please can anyone recommend a local dentist (SW17) to make a personalised anti-snoring device.  I've tried off the shelf products but they don't work so I want to try a custom-fitted device.  Many thanks.

MInxette -have you gone to an ENT specialist to ascertain why you snore ?  There are several reasons that you may have stertorous snoring with different solutions.   In our cities many people have chronic sinusitis that can cause snoring.
Yes, I was referred to the respiratory clinic at St George's where I was diagnosed as a snorer rather someone with apnea. :(
