Fast. Easy. Cost-effective.

What are prefabricated SomnoGuard® oral appliances?

Oral appliances are a proven therapy option for snoring and mild or moderate obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA). They are also called mandibular advancement devices (MAD). Our prefabricated SomnoGuard® mandibular advancement devices are made of a thermoplastic material. The material softens when heated in a hot water bath. During the fitting, the material can be formed according to the teeth.

 

How do SomnoGuard® oral appliances work?

By wearing a SomnoGuard® oral appliance, snoring and nocturnal breathing stops can be reduced or resolved. SomnoGuard® oral appliances cause the desired advancement of the lower jaw and the tongue and thus the opening of the upper airways. The soft tissue and muscles of the upper airways remain tight. The vibration and fluttering of the soft tissue (soft palate and uvula) are reduced or at best even prevented.

How to fit SomnoGuard® oral appliances

The prefabricated SomnoGuard® mandibular advancement devices consist of a thermoplastic material. After heating the trays in hot water, the thermoplastic material becomes mouldable. By biting into the material, it forms according to the teeth creating teeth impressions. After the oral appliance cools down in a cold water bath, the material hardens and maintains its shape. If the oral appliance does not fit perfectly, it can be reheated and once again be fitted.
