SomnoDent - Sleep Apnea Appliance

Worn during sleep, SomnoDent® devices fit over the upper and lower teeth. The device slightly moves the mandible forward, helping to keep the airway open and allowing you to breathe normally. This movement tightens the soft tissue and muscles of the upper airway, which prevents obstructive apneas while you sleep. The SomnoDent® line of devices are customized for the patient and offer superior comfort and quality. Patients can talk and open/close their mouths and lips while wearing their SomnoDent sleep apnea device. SomnoDent devices are fabricated using the highest quality acrylic which does not discolor or attract odors.
