In the LF Sleep Center we recommend a state of the art device conceived by specialists called SOMNODENT.
SOMNODENT is a custom-made oral appliance resembling boxers’ mouthguard which is adjustable and tailored to your mouth and teeth.
It advances the lower jaw, tongue and adjacent oral structures and thus enlarging the pharyngeal space, decreasing breathing resistance, and mechanically keeping the airway open during sleep.
It ensures unobstructed breathing.
In our center we use SLEEP ENDOSCOPY to determine if SOMNODENT will be adequate treatment option in your particular case.
- The most effective oral appliance therapy
- More comfortable
- Custom-made design
- You can breathe normally
- Less risk to dentition compared to "universal" solutions
COURSE OF TREATMENT
Dental evaluation will ensure that you are an ideal candidate for oral appliances.
This evaluation includes a complete dental exam. Your teeth and supporting structures must be strong enough to withstand the loads associated to oral appliance wear.
If you are a good candidate dentist will take impressions of your upper and lower teeth, and some additional measurement like movements of your jaw.
With these information a custom made device – SOMNODENT will be made. The lifespan of the device is about 3 to 5 years.
They will take care of you
