SomnoDent® Sleep Apnea Appliance
Rest peacefully and sleep well
SomnoDent® is a custom made device worn during sleep to increase the upper airway volume and reduce collapsibility. SomnoDent® Flex & Classic devices each utilize a unique fin coupling component, maximizing patient comfort and compliance.
SomnoDent® treatment has also been shown to have a clinically significant impact in reducing patients’ blood pressure and has been predicted to reduce the risk of stroke. In addition, this blood pressure reduction was apparent in the early morning, which is the time of peak risk for acute myocardial infarction.
14 independent studies and over 12 years’ worth of research demonstrate SomnoDent efficacy and significant clinical benefits. Exceptional levels of compliance 88%, treatment efficacy 91% and acceptance 96% of patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have been cited.
In 2011, a randomizemulti-center trial with 108 patients concluded that treatment of moderate-severe OSA with either CPAP or SomnoDent® has similar effects on health outcomes.
SomnoDent G2 provides an easy to use modular titration system, which allows instant and accurate measurement. You’ll experience the ultimate comfort as the device has a smaller coupling mechanism, is slim-line and more posteralaly located.
Made from our unique SMH BFlex material and acrylic that provides superior retention and comfort. SMH BFlex is a soft polymer that is heat-cured, packed and pressed utilizing an exclusive chemical formula that facilitates soft to hard polymer bonding at the layers interface. The result is a fit that is unmatched and unlike anything seen before in a resilient material, securely anchoring appliance with a snug fit – even on short teeth with little under cut. With an expected life of 3-5 years. SMH BFlex does not discolor or attract odors. Patients may prefer this model, particularly where crown and bridgework is present.
