How do they work?
There are several types of custom appliance. The most commonly used is the Somnodent appliance. Your custom-made device will fit comfortably over your teeth. It works by moving your lower jaw slightly forward. This forward movement helps to keep your airway continuously open.
SomnoMed patients’ feedback:
- 91% are sleeping better at night.1
- 88% use their device regularly1
- Almost 100% of those who use it, continue to use their device for long-term treatment of their condition.
Almost 9 out of 10 Australian Somnodent users report that their device is comfortable to wear and report better sleep.
While wearing a Somnodent device, you’ll be able to fully open and close your mouth, yawn, drink, take tablets and even speak clearly. You won’t feel restricted or claustrophobic. You won’t have to remove it to get up during the night.
