What is a SomnoDent Sleep Appliance?
The SomnoDent MAS is a Mandibular Advancement Splint (MAS) that treats mild, moderate and severe OSA by moving the lower jaw slightly forward. This movement tightens the soft tissue and muscles of the upper airway, which prevents obstruction while you sleep. The SomnoDent MAS also prevents the tissues of the upper airway from vibrating as air passes over them, which is the major cause of snoring.
What is the effectiveness of SomnoDent?
91% of patients reported substantial improvement in sleep quality with the SomnoDent MAS.
When is it worn?
The SomnoDent MAS is only worn when you sleep. The SomnoDent MAS is very discrete, allowing you to close your lips, so it is not obvious you are wearing it.
What will the dentist do?
The dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and mouth and may use x-rays to confirm your oral health status, as well as ensuring that you are dentally appropriate for the splint. Dental impressions are required to fabricate a SomnoDent MAS. They are sent to our laboratory where the appliance is made. Once custom made for you, the appliance will be fitted by the dentist who will show you how to insert and remove it yourself, as well as how to clean it, and care for it.
What if I have a bridge or denture?
Patients with dentures may be successfully fitted with the SOmnoDent MAS, as long as there are sufficient teeth on the lower arch for optimal retention. Your dentist will be able to address this with you. SomnoDent MAS may be fitted over dental implants.
