Ideal Starting Position.

The ideal starting position for a protrusive bite record will be comfortable and as protrusive as possible, to ensure efficacy and effectiveness of your patient’s new SomnoDent Mandibular Advancement Splint (MAS).

For most patients, 2/3 of centric to full protrusion is suitable for a starting position. The SomGauge will allow you and your patient to find this starting point with ease and accuracy.

Once a starting position is obtained, ask the patient to hold in that position for 2-3 minutes and seek feedback on comfort. Adjust if necessary.
