Comparing Sleep Apnea Devices

somnodent oral deviceFor many years, oral devices (also known as mandibular advance devices or oral appliances) have been a cottage industry with individual dental labs across the country making their own “custom” devices. Because Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a medical condition, manufacturing a high-quality medical device will ensure patients are treated with a product proven to successfully treat this chronic condition.

Other Custom, Adjustable Oral Devices

  • SomnoMed has treated more patients than most other oral device companies.
  • Many other companies do not adhere to the same strict compliance standards.
  • Other manufacturers lack a premium device option.
  • Non-proprietary materials offer a lower quality of fit and require more adjustment by a dentist.
  • While other devices may feature a “slimmer profile” — they may not fit as well leading to periods of non-treatment.
  • Only a small number of companies offer independent clinical studies for their products.
  • Others do not provide the wide range of dental partners that SomnoMed connects you with.
  • No other dorsal fin oral device in the US can offer compliance recording technology.
  • Others lack devices for edentulous patients.
  • Other companies offer devices that are only partially repairable by the dentist.
  • Extended warranties of this length are not available with most other companies.
