How does SomMorning Repositioner work?
SomMorning Repositioner is intended to be worn for 10 minutes each morning after removal of the SomnoDent® device. We recommend to exercise the jaw by repeatedly clenching on the device. These isometric exercises are intended to activate the masseter muscles and relax the pterygoid muscles in the hope of minimising mandibular posturing forward.
By performing exercises with a SomMorning Repositioner every morning, your patients’ bite should quickly return to its centric position.
“Jaw exercises might help relieve masticatory muscle stiffness and accelerate the repositioning of the mandible to the normal position, in addition to inhibiting or minimising the occlusal functional changes in predisposed patients.”
