The SomnoDent oral sleep appliance is a custom-made mandibular advancement splint (MAS) that treats mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnoea by preventing breathing lapses during sleep. The device consists of an upper and lower dental plate with a unique patented fin-coupling component, which allows normal mouth opening and closing.
The splint moves the lower jaw slightly forward. This forward movement tightens the soft tissues and muscles of the upper airway, which prevents obstruction of the airway while you sleep. This tightening also prevents the tissues of the upper airway from vibrating as air passes over them - the most common cause of loud snoring.
The design of the SomnoDent oral sleep appliance offers significant advantages. The splint is comfortable to wear and provides effective treatment. The device allows you to get a good night’s sleep, feeling rested in the morning and full of energy the entire day.
For the majority of patients, the SomnoDent oral sleep appliance presents a highly attractive solution for the treatment of mild to moderate sleep apnoea, particularly if CPAP does not agree with them. Its exceptional level of patient acceptance and satisfaction as well as treatment efficacy are backed by a large body of clinical trials and research results.
