SomnoGuard® SP Soft is a two-piece, incrementally adjustable mandibular advancement device to treat snoring and mild or moderate obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS). The prefabricated oral appliance consists of two identical trays for the upper and lower jaw. Each tray consists of two components. The hard outer tray shells are made of polycarbonate and are filled with a biocompatible thermoplastic material. SomnoGuard® SP Soft moves the lower jaw slightly forward and opens the upper airways. Snoring and breathing stops at night can thus be reduced or completely prevented.
(Please also read the instructions for use)
1. Heat the trays in boiling water for about 3 ½ minutes.
2. Allow the trays to cool down for about 15 seconds in the air.
3. Bite into the soft thermoplastic material. It forms according to the teeth.
4. Cool the trays in cold water to harden the material.
5. Connect the trays with the side connectors.
You can find further information in the detailed user instructions in the download area and in the following fitting video.
Note: To achieve an optimal therapeutic result, we recommend that SomnoGuard® SPX is fitted by a physician (e.g., dentist, ENT physician, physician in the sleep laboratory) or their trained medical staff.
Two connectors of equal length connect the upper and lower trays laterally with each other. The shorter the connector, the stronger the lower jaw advancement. Depending on the length of the connector pair chosen, a protrusion is possible up to + 10 mm.
Especially for patients having a smaller to medium jaw size, a retrognathic or deep bite. For bruxists we recommend the SomnoGuard® AP 2 oral appliance.
