How effective is SomnoDent?

When is it worn?
SomnoDent is worn when you sleep. The appliance is very discrete, allowing you to close your lips so it is not obvious that you are wearing it

Is it comfortable?
SomnoDent is comfortable and easy to wear, and most people find that is only takes on or two nights to get used to it. It is custom made to fit your mouth and It does not impinge on your tongue. You can open and close your mouth normally as SomnoDent does not lock or fix your jaws together.

What if I wear dentures?
An edentulous option can be made from the SomnoDent flex or SomnoDent Classic. Your dentists can assess your suitability for this.

What will the SomnoMed dentist do?
The SomnoDent dentist will thoroughly examine your teeth and mouth to confirm your oral health status, as well as ensure that you are dentally appropriate for the appliance. Dental impressions are required to fabricate the SomnoDent. These are then sent to the SomnoMed laboratory where the appliance is made. Once custom made for you, the appliance will be fitted by your SomnoMed dentist who will instruct you on how to insert and remove it yourself, including how to clean and care for your SomnoDent.
