What are SomnoGuard® Oral Appliances?
SomnoGuard® Oral Appliances are a proven therapy option for the treatment of snoring and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). They are also called mandibular advancement devices. SomnoGuard® devices are made of a thermoplastic material. When heated in a hot water bath the material softens and is custom fit to the patient.
How do oral appliances work to treat sleep apnea and snoring?
SomnoGuard® oral appliances help advance the lower jaw and tongue, thus opening up the upper airways. It helps keep the soft tissue and the muscles of the upper airways tight. The vibration of the soft palate and uvula (which is what causes the snoring sound) is reduced and in the best cases, prevented entirely.
