Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance: SomnoDent

A SomnoDent sleep apnea oral appliance is a premium, custom-fitted dental device developed for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea. It is an effective, comfortable, and durable alternative to CPAP therapy or corrective surgery. By simply wearing a SomnoDent while sleeping, your lower jaw (mandible) will be moved forward into a comfortable position, allowing relaxation of the tissues at the back of your throat and ensuring the base of your tongue does not collapse and block your airway, giving you a safe and soundless sleep. Most patients and practitioners prefer oral appliance therapy for its comfort, convenience and effectiveness.

Is a SomnoDent Sleep Apnea Oral Appliance Right for Me?

A growing number of men and women have discovered SomnoDent to be the perfect solution for ending snoring, treating sleep apnea and/or improving sleep quality. It is an ideal alternative treatment for patients who have been diagnosed with mild to moderate obstructive sleep apnea or for those who have severe OSA, yet are unable or unwilling to tolerate CPAP therapy and/or surgery.
