The SomnoDent Oral Appliance by SomnoMed
What is SomnoDent?
SomnoDent is an Oral Sleep Apnea Appliance consisting of two dental plates, which look similar to a sports mouth guard.
SomnoDent is custom made to fit your mouth and should be worn at night while you are asleep.
How does SomnoDent work?
Using a titration key, the SomnoDent can be gradually adjusted to bring your lower jaw forward, opening up your airway.
Treatment is painless and non-invasive. SomnoDent therapy is reversible and can be used in conjuction with other treatment modalities.
Is SomnoDent comfortable?
The SomnoDent allows you to open and close your mouth, which means you can talk or drink with the appliance in position.
Because SomnoDent is custom made to fit your mouth, you will find the appliance to be surprisingly comfortable and discreet. You will find that you’re used to wearing the device after about a week.
Is SomnoDent the right treatment for me?
If you suffer from mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea the SomnoDent should benefit you. If your OSA is classified as severe and you cannot tolerate other recommended treatments, speak to Dr. Willhide or your Sleep Physician about trying the SomnoDent.
