Do you suffer from sleep apnoea and are looking for
an alternative to CPAP?

Your CPAP machine is uncomfortable and you find it difficult to use it every night?  

How SomnoMed®
oral appliances treat sleep apnoea

Snoring and sleep apnoea can be caused by the airway at the back of your throat narrowing while you sleep. Oral appliances, like our SomnoDent® Avant, move your jaw and tongue forward while you sleep to open up your airway and treat your sleep apnoea.

Leading the world in oral appliance treatment for sleep apnoea

SomnoMed® is the world’s largest supplier of oral sleep apnoea devices, operating in 28 countries. Since 2004, we’ve helped more than 625,000 patients have a comfortable night’s sleep while effectively treating their sleep apnoea. We’ll make your device to the same medical device quality standards that are used for pacemakers to make sure your device is comfortable for your first night – and every night’s sleep.

Our most comfortable oral appliance yet

Compared with wearing a CPAP mask, wearing a SomnoDent® Avant is comfort on a completely different scale. You’ll feel this from the moment you place it in your mouth, and it glides onto your teeth, gently cradling and supporting each tooth. Find out how our proprietary Bflex soft inner liner provides unparalleled comfort and support for your teeth.

On the rare occasion that I forget to put it in the device my sleep deteriorates immediately. It’s invaluable.” Read more

Liz’s story

“Having suffered jaw and tooth pain over several months and following several appointments with my GP and regular dentist to no avail, I asked April (dentist) if she could give me a second opinion. After careful consultation April suggested that sleep apnoea and teeth grinding might be behind the issues and recommended a Somnomed® device to wear at night. Read more

Simon’s story

“My name is Simon Wilsdon I am a general dentist in York with a special interest in dental sleep medicine. Over several years I have experienced mild sleep apnoea and, unfortunately for my wife, loud snoring. I have tried several different mandibular advancement devices over the years. These have given initial improvement but nothing long lasting and were uncomfortable over time. After investigating different options, I decided to give the new SomnoMed® Avant appliance a try.

Mohammed’s story

Mohammed was diagnosed with Severe Sleep Apnoea in 2018.

“For the first year after my diagnosis, I had a CPAP machine in the home, but I really struggled with it, due to the anxiety of the mask being on my face all night. When I saw my Sleep Consultant, I was advised that I should not drive, and my driving license has now been revoked for more than 2 years. I have a family at home, with four children, so having no driving license has really affected our day-to-day lives. Little things like food shopping and trips out are much more difficult. Read more

There, l was given the Epworth Sleep Study questionnaire to complete which indicated l had daytime sleepiness but not severely. However further investigation was necessary and an overnight hospital stay was arranged where l had a sleep study conducted. Read more
