ANTI SNORE DEVICES
Oral appliances achieve a slight advancement of the lower jaw and tongue and thus an opening of the upper respiratory tract.
Oral appliances, also called mandibular advancement devices, are an effective treatment option for snoring. They can also be used for mild or moderate obstructive sleep apnoea accompanied by nocturnal breathing stops. Mandibular advancement devices, like our proven SomnoGuard® oral appliances, are worn in the mouth at night. They cause an advancement of the lower jaw and tongue to prevent an obstruction of the upper airways. There are prefabricated mandibular advancement devices and custom-made appliances by the dentist. Our prefabricated SomnoGuard® oral appliances consist of a thermoplastic material. By heating the material in a boiling water bath, the oral appliance can be formed according to the teeth (comparable with a dental impression). Custom-made oral appliances, on the other hand, are made in a dental laboratory according to a dental impression taken by your dentist.

Positioning Aids support lateral position while sleeping. They prevent supine position that encourages snoring and nocturnal breathing stops.
Sleeping in supine position is one of the most common causes of snoring. This sleeping position favours the lower jaw and tongue to fall back and to narrow the upper airways. This creates the typical snoring noise. Positional therapy offers a solution. Positioning aids, also known as supine position preventers, encourage you to sleep on your side or your stomach and prevent you from lying on your back. By wearing the positioning aids regularly, the body can get used to the lateral sleeping position. Positional therapy thus provokes a learning effect: After a while, many persons concerned no longer need to wear positioning aids since they automatically sleep in lateral position.

Nasal dilators improve nasal breathing by softly spreading the nasal wings and widening the nasal entrance.
Especially in times of colds and allergies, many people suffer from nasal congestion resulting in an impaired nasal breathing at night. Nasal breathing problems, in turn, promote snoring. Nasal dilators, also called nasal stents or breathing aids, are placed inside the nose at night. They widen the narrowest part of the nasal entrance by softly spreading the nostrils and thus facilitate nasal breathing.
