SomnoDent® Oral Appliance Information for Patients
An ideal treatment option: SomnoDent
A SomnoDent oral appliance is a premium, custom-fitted dental sleep appliance developed for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. It is an effective, comfortable, and durable alternative to CPAP therapy or corrective surgery. By simply wearing a SomnoDent while sleeping, your lower jaw (mandible) will be moved forward into a comfortable position, allowing relaxation of the tissues at the back of your throat and ensuring the base of your tongue does not collapse and block your airway, giving you a safe and soundless sleep. Most patients and practitioners prefer oral appliance therapy for its comfort, convenience and effectiveness.
